Standing on Rock Bottom

This poem was inspired by these prompts: about the positive side of change and about astonishment and wonder.


What she thought was the end of the world,

When she thought she was unlovable

Because she seemed unappreciated

By someone whose love she had wanted —

 

What she thought was rock bottom,

Was precisely the solid ground she needed

To stand at last on her own feet,

To rebuild, and find astonishment at the new life

She is leading, which she didn’t know she wanted.

  1. Oh, YES!!!!!! This is EXACTLY the lesson, when it feels like the world is falling apart, solid ground forms beneath our feet and we walk into a future beyond our wildest dreams. I love this poem. The universe dreams bigger dreams for us than we sometimes dream for ourselves.
