All Roads Lead To Seven Sisters – HLR

A rewrite of an old poem of mine for Free Verse Revolution. Big love and thanks to Kristiana for her support ♡

FREE VERSE REVOLUTION

and I pray to a god who keeps on disappearing
and I ask the silent shattered stars above
to make sure that the baby in that room
turns out to be nothing

I will be many different people
and wear many different faces
and get a thousand chances
to be better:
I will even take some of them —
when I’m being brave,
I will pick my chances like cherries
roll them between my finger tips
undertake inspection for any imperfections
and then urgently devour the possibilities
that dwell within the cerise skin
and try to be better, better, better at this
business
of living.
