Moving Forward

“What is joy without sorrow? what is success without failure? what is a win without a loss? what is health without illness? you have to experience each if you are to appreciate the other. there is always going to be suffering. it’s how you look at your suffering, how you deal with it, that will define you.”

Mark Twain

Moving forward with life

after the death of

a loved one

can be pretty frightening

downright scary

– sharing

– developing trust

– taking two steps forward

then one step back

– when tears come

during the process.

But then I think

it may always be

this way.

Now to find the

balance between

past pain,

present healing,

and future joy.

All three must

find a way to

peacefully coexist

within me

so the discord

in my mind

will be silenced.

Only then will I

be capable of

appreciating life


moving forward.
