New Choice, New Voice

Stepping-up to gather-up
The pieces of
My life

Only light
Faintly glowing spark
Remaining in heart

You say
To used and abused parts

No faint heart
The mystical arts
Of invisible marks
Ellipsis threading
Tedious treading
Slippery slopes
No ropes

The notion of setting in motion
Choice and voice

New choice

Left foot...right foot…
Up to the edge

New Voice
