And The Mountain Moved

This is a poem I wrote and I’d like to share it with all of you. This is copyrighted material, so be sure and give me credit as the author if you reprint this.

“And The Mountain Moved

I am the little child full of love and laughter and family

and the mountain was huge and scary and far away.

I am the teenager, scared and scarred

and the mountain is still huge.

I am the young adult with stars in my eyes, love in my life, marriage and children

and the mountain seems remote and far away from my busy life.

I am the middle aged woman who worked all my married life, my children are gone and it’s time to find out who I am, and the mountain appears closer.

I am the wise old woman who knows who she is, where she belongs and what her legacy is and that mountain is within me.”

Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene
