Beginning The Next Path

Changing Direction

As if our entire journey

Was obliterated, to you

An era gone to waste.

Memories displayed, tagged

With yard sale prices.

Years of care and support

Overpowered by

Foolish disloyalty.


This relationship ruined,

A home no longer resembling

Our shrine, our temple

Of safety and devotion

That was once so secure.


I have accepted these corrections,

Coping with torment.

Suffering throughout

This visitation of karma.

Enduring each hazardous twist

That mistakes evoked.


As a new journey begins,

I will not lose grasp of the past.

Experience the various emotions,

Grow stronger, and

Learn to find light

In the darkest of places.
