Second Guesses Second Chances – A Poem by Michelle Gregory

Second Guesses Second Chances
by Michelle Gregory

I remember when I got up
and tried again like it was
normal.
Slowly, with expectations
comes hesitation
and then fear.

Now I don’t even try, in
case of failure.
The new status quo.

The path from one to the
other is long and winding
to confuse and blur.

The truth is you can step
back, follow the path,
become the person who
tries again.

You know I’m right.
Look past the mountain of fear.

Tides of Change – A Poem by Michelle Gregory

Tides of Change
by Michelle Gregory

Like magic you arrive and disappear.
Salt water stings my open wounds.
Broken pieces of the unfortunate—nature’s reminder.
Waves pound down.

The moment has arrived.
The power underneath pulls and crashes back down.
Washing away all signs of life and death.
Seeping back in to make everything whole.
I await your next arrival.

Fractures in Time – A Poem by Michelle Gregory

Fractures in Time

When
is a second not a second;
a minute not a minute.
Do you need minutes,
to have seconds?

Seconds;
first love,
a day at the beach,
summer.

Minutes;
divorce,
a day of rain,
winter.

Your last breath,
an hour.
