Poetry: Write Your Page

By Monica C. Voskamp

I turned the page and found

Blank white with no scribbles.

There were no mistakes.

No scratched out lines.

No misspellings.

I savoured the moment,

So freshly untainted.

But within a few minutes

I blurbed splotches of ink.

I didn’t cringe.

I didn’t cry.

I simply acknowledged and moved on.

I look at blank pages today

With less judgement and more grace

I hold room for myself and mistakes

With freedom to learn and grow

At my own pace.

Life isn’t meant to be

The perfect fairytale story no,

Life is quite the tangled opposite

As most of us from experience know.

But no matter the harshness

There is still the magic

There is still the sacred

Written on every page.

The moment you see it

You live a little different.

You live with more grace.

So go write your pages

You’ll find the magic overlaps

In every single day.
