Lit Matches

Lit Matches

She stood on straw –
a measly foundation
on which to build a future.
When the match was lit,
it all went up in flames.
What should have
burned her to the ground
became her power –
passion burning a path
to her future.


Yesterday a good friend told me he was continually impressed with my ability to extract a positive message out of the darkness. He was right to see that it really is a central message in much of my work. I believe there is always hope, there is always light to be found, and there is always a silver lining to grow from.
