Origins

In the beginning,
there was the word.
And then there was the exit,
unwilling.

"I want" preceded
the crying babe,
leaving one woman
with empty arms
and another filled.
Both done and undone
by the word.

My genesis,
from the word I came.
To the words
I grow.
Such haphazard creation,
who knows what the word
will bring.

Expectations... entrusted to us by God, a word not by choice the beginning of for one which brings an end for another. Sad..but well expressed.
So good to see you again, I have missed your writing.
