Sentenced Glory

Writing…

not the beginning of verse,

but the end

 

Grabbing life by the throat,

the birth of a thought

 —whose story begins

 

Captive together,

they walk word by word

toward the jury

 

Scars and accolades,

joy and strife

—in sentenced glory

 

(Ronald McDonald House: January, 2020)
