Wonderfully Strange

when recovery comes from unexpected places

on this life-altering road I’m on,

needs and wants vacillate between before and after 

demons push toward chaos, angels tug toward comfort

entropy reigns if only to set a new course

resigned, I follow  

for as much as I might resist, I know

unmitigated misery will burn itself out

lagging behind the curve, I proceed

leaning into the pain

yearning to unlock the lessons within

striving to find that silver lining

torn from missalettes read not so long ago

redemption beckons on a spectacular autumn day

and healing calls with voices borrowed from old friends to

navigate this journey by my side

generous in spirit, gentle in delivery

endurance required, participation optional
