Week Five: An Unquiet Mind Writing Prompt Challenge – My heart and other black holes

19396723

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “To the Oppressors” by Pauli Murray: now, contained, endure, grief, grapes, subtle, steal, crush, life, forgotten, twilight, aching

My heart and other black holes
Aching in the twilight, enduring the grief
Crushing my life, stealing my hope to my disbelief
Now trying to forget, subtle atonement of my soul

Contained toughness in my head, that is my goal
No sour grapes, no regrets for that is my brief
My heart and other black holes
Aching in the twilight, enduring the grief

I want to move on and back in control
To climb up mountains, swim in the reef
To forgive, to forget, holding the fig leaf
In time feeling again that I am whole
My heart and other black holes*
