Necessary Endings (a poem)

“Getting to the next level always requires ending something, letting go, and moving on.” -Henry Cloud (“Necessary Endings”)

Cut your losses, close up shop (when)
It’s not working, time to stop
It’s hardly fun and can be scary 
Some endings are necessary

Maintenance of vitality (through)
Closure & finality
Weed your garden to survive (makes)
What’s desired grow and thrive

Clear up space inside your head
Don’t seek life among the dead
I know it’s painful to let go
You’d be surprised how much you grow 🌸

“Why seek ye the living among the dead?”
-Luke 24:5

A Line That Lit A Fire (Poem)

A line that lit a fire
Ideas that inspire
A one-time, offhand phrase (that others)
Might just throw away

A sentence that can spark
Major change from a remark
What may seem casual (to me’s)
Beyond invaluable

The words that spoke to me (become so)
Seared in memory
They permeate my heart
So I get up and I start
