The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman

A New Tomorrow


The landscape is forbidding

I still my trembling limbs

and gaze silently around

I cannot turn back now

when all else is lost.


Streams of solitude abound

with pebbles of loneliness and

dark currents of sorrow

Drifting soundlessly through the landscape are

misty wraiths of hope.


They try tirelessly

to get a hold somewhere

to catch a ray of sunshine

to clutch a vine of joy

to take root and grow.


The wraiths give me the courage

to pick up the pieces

of a life that was mine

until I smashed it to smithereens

and gave in without a fight.


Now I stand here

determined to wrestle it back

I’m defeated, bowed and beaten

but I know I’m not broken yet

I’ll see a new tomorrow and get my lost smile back.

    So, do get that smile back!

    One relates to the reality — so well captured by you so simply, is a quest to learn from the past and live with it —-
