Jagged Corner

Tonight my thoughts traced the sharp edges of my past.

Nothing unusual — it’s routine.

Out of all the jagged corners, there’s one I visit often.

The one I helped sharpen.

A once piercing cage is now a peaceful space.

Walls carpeted with forgiveness and furnished with understanding.

Here, my thoughts don’t pace anxiously anymore.

Instead they settle in, grab a cup of confidence, and take a spoonful of self love.

And man, it tastes so damn good.
