Written In Response To:
Reena’s Exploration Challenge #87 – I give you a choice between two pictures. You can choose any one, or write two separate pieces for both, and link up.
I am using both photos for one piece.
A vagabond soul travels down dark corridors
seeking to find her purpose in this life
though year after year no answers come and
every so often she stops to look outside the window
to watch the people below on the streets enjoying…
friends, family, lovers…engaging life to the full
with a purpose for living, loving, and being loved…
she is happy for them but can’t help crying inside
wondering why she was never given these blessings
yet…in the depths of her sorrow she finds the
fortitude to continue to keep pressing on in the
hope that these blessings will one day be hers too
even though no one has ever taught her about hope
and has really never had a reason to hope since childhood
still, it is there, deep in her core as she has survived
a design for her life that has not been her desire,
her dream for the last two-thirds of her life and
she cannot help but ask…Has this hope led her astray?
