A word I heard today
that plucked at something
deep down and reflected
back my choices from the
well of my soul.
Choices made in these
last decades, counter
to my happiness, my path,
my self.
Counter to my intuition,
my gut, my divine compass.
When surely unseen hosts
were crying out:
“No! Don’t do it!”
Like the universes in my heart.
Like, perhaps, my children
still unborn…
