The Prompt

Where were you last night?
When I was alone.
When I was hurting.

Where were you yesterday?
When I was laughing
and dancing in the living room.

Where were you last week?
When I was coming home from work.
When I was tired and worn out.

Where were you last year?
When I struggled up out of bed
and fought to start my day.

Where are you now?
When I am ready to walk away.
When I am finally done.



I am Myself I am a Wife Blessed with love I am a Mother Endowed with divinity Through the power of creation I am a Daughter Brought into this world With unending hope And the promise of the future I am a Sister Made fierce and strong While forged with kindness Protector and protected Spiraling together forever I am a Nurse Holding out the hands of healing And offering the sick comfort And the dying love Knowing that through this All things are healed and made whole I am a Writer Creating myself and world Sharing the inner depths of humanity Bringing together the divine And the humble mortal I tell the story of the Goddess And am remembered forever
