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.

Music of the Spheres by Laurie Corzett

Music of the Spheres
by Laurie Corzett 

In the quiet of the evening
when starlight and peace prevail
a haunting rhythm,
music of the spheres,
comes dancing
embracing fear,
kissing the pain away.
Past twilight I watch the sky
hoping for a shooting star
to swoop down and carry me
far into another lifetime,
where kindly constellations
tell stories of joy and thanksgiving.
The evening star crackles and strains
like an old jazz recording.
Music of another age
written on a mighty, sacred wind
told like Homeric verse
by the wanderers —
heavenly nourishing guides
leading us home.
