small pieces of joy

pieces of joy in each day


Today’s small thing: a published poem

I found this website recently called The Grief Toolbox. It has a lot of great poems and articles written by the site creators and people who are experiencing grief. I have found it a great resource as I wade through the rough waters of my feelings. It has been so comforting to read words from other hurting hearts, knowing I’m not alone.

One day in the past month or so they posted a call for submissions on their Facebook page. I’ve been thinking about it for a while but never had the time or inspiration to get something written.

Then last night came. I could not figure out what I wanted to do  (as happens almost all the time these days), so I sat down with my computer and started typing. A few words flowed from my mind through my fingers and became a poem which I think speaks exactly how I’ve been feeling lately.

So I submitted it to the website last night.

And It was published this morning!

I would like to share it with you, not only because of what it says, but the fact that it is published somewhere other than my personal blog. I’m so excited!

My hope is that my words may speak to other aching hearts like so many of their articles have spoken to mine.

Here it is.
