Looking Back

Looking back

In remembering,
the challenge is
to turn the telling
of the story
of grief for lost
futures and chances
never offered
into something
more forward seeing,

To turn away
from the salted grief
for a coveted life
I imagined mine
to build.

To retell the story
in a way that keeps
me moving
forward, ahead
of the life that did
not follow me
into the sunlight of
my current happiness.
