In the beginning it was all about enduring.
My life was turned upside down.
To survive the upheaval I needed courage~
to forge ahead despite the reactions from others.
I needed perseverance to pick up the pieces of my life
and guts and pluck to turn the shards into something new.
Today my life requires a different form of patience.
I need fortitude, as I wait for the next phase.
I must maintain calm composure
as the stars continue to align,
and the clouds of indecision begin to clear.
Painful moments will come,
but a peaceful detachment and steady spirit
will ease the transition,
as life takes on a new shape.
