Walking in a Slightly Different Way Today


Work is not easy; that's why it's called Work.

Today, however, was different
than all of the other days.

And after many months
of dealing with
a narrow-minded person,
Today,
yes, today,
that person apologized.

"I accept your apology."


It feels good.
It feels right.

Turns out we both did something
different today.
I took a step forward to break my silence;
she took a step back and said she was sorry.

It's a good crack in the pavement.
I'm ready to march on
and cross the finish line in nine days.

One step at a time and the entire world would be such a better place. How great it must feel to have that angst in the past. On to the finish line...
