Forced perspectives


I'm not always certain where I am headed.
Days from 40, I've yet to determine a destination 
beyond being responsible 
for the dispensation of human kindness,
for truthful self-reflection.
I find theology still fraught with difficulties; my culture more so. 
Parenthood isn't easy, nor step-parenthood.
My recent trip to the doctor has at least clarified 
that I am hormonally balanced,
still fertile, nowhere near menopause.

(Someone might pass this info on to Ex #Nightmare. 
I regret to say that I've not found any evidence 
to back up his cruel treatment of me,
and marriage to Mr. PNU is a dream
whether we conceive or not.)

And so I keep trying at all the hard realities.
