Reflective

I'm aging.
My eyes show my miles of laughter and tears.

I'm changing.
Skin loosening; pigment popping and fading.

I'm listening.
To the telltale cracks of basketball court pounding in my knees.

I'm contemplating.
The best I give; the best I have; the best of others outside of me.


I'm caught up.
In what the future holds for my boys, our family, my k.Mac.

{Wondering}
{Waiting}
{Wishing}


I'm here.
Reflecting on it all.

Inspired.
Reminded.
Rewarded.
Reprimanded.
Relieved.
Insecure.
Impatient.
Interrupted.

Reflective.


Life is that list of words that have no akinness to the other.
Like blended families these words stick out like sore thumbs.
Yet side by side somehow make it all work.

That's reflection.

The bitter.
The sweet.
The lost.
The love.
The happy.
The sorrow.
The mistakes.
The more of you.

My miles of laughter and tears.
