Today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo is to write a poem the reflects on the nature of being in the middle of something.
In this space I sit, in a state of peace and wonder at how far I’ve come
There were so many obstacles to overcome that the task at times seemed daunting
The past was wrought with hard knocks and painful lessons to be learned
Many of which loomed large enough to make or break a person’s spirit
While I cannot exactly say that I’ve made it, I can say that I am far from broken
While the future lies wide ahead of me, and at times I walk on wobbly legs
Like those of a newborn deer, taking its first tentative steps into the world
This space, this in between, is a wonderland to me. One filled with adventures.
Adventures in which I am finally free to explore in my own way
To simply be myself and test the waters, smell the roses, taste the variety of life
In between is far from a scary place, it is a sweet spot filled with new delights.
