The Hardest Thing

“The worst battle you’ll have to fight is between what you know and how you feel.”
― Turcois Ominek

 

I used to think the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do

Was letting go of the man I loved…

Oh, boy, how wrong was I…

The hardest thing has found me much later…

 

The hardest thing has been confronting all my demons

That show up when there’s a couple walking hand-and-hand…

A pregnant woman massaging her bulging belly…

Or seeing in a stroller tiny wiggling feet…

 

The hardest thing has been all Valentine’s Days, Christmases, Thanksgivings…

 

It has been letting go of my dreams…

And finding peace and joy in simply being…
