It is easy to forget that tomorrow can be different when we are saturated in the emotions of today. Connecting to others makes a huge difference. Here is a poem for inspiration to leave your doorway and be open to who you might find on your path.


Quiveringly quiet,
with anticipation of freedom,
framed by the sturdily built doorway,
she waits to greet dusk,
smelling the wind of tomorrow coming.
Once outside, she will never wear
that heavy cloak of blame again.
Even her shadow will no longer
be the same.
