Pieces of Peace

How do you know when the end has come and passed you by? That it’s time to let the dream die? When do you say “Goodbye” to yesterday and doze off with expectation of what new tomorrow may bring? How do you know it’s time to walk away and stop looking back over your shoulder, hoping the person you’re walking away from is following behind you? When do you let go? Forgive? Forget? Learn the lesson and not look for more than? When will the lesson be enough? When you embrace the moments and let the teacher go.

Where’s the sweet spot Audre Lord wrote about in “Making Love to Concrete,” between forgiving too easily / and never giving at all? It’s here. Right here. In this moment. Now’s the time.

One Response to “Pieces of Peace”

  1. For me, moving on just kind if happens. You just kind of move on without your conscious acknowledgement. Everything just seems less intense, immediate, special, gut wrenching. You wake up and the mention of the person has no immediate effect on your mood or day. That’s not to say there won’t be residual feelings, but you won’t feel the need to wallow or relive every moment.

    But that could just be me.
