The Teacher

The first was a model of what authentic love meant.

What it looked and felt like.

What I have never known since.

The second was a reaction to the loss of the first.

Burdened by fear, sadness and anxiety.

A test of my resolve.

The third was like a quiz of my priorities.

I chose independence over things.

Simplicity over abundance.

I have spent decades examining my choices.

Lamenting over those who have chosen me.

Perhaps it was meant to be.

My teachers of love, strength and morality.
