What's new with you?

Thinking clearer. Feeling better. Not being shy. Working again. Taking
public transportation. Meeting new people. Creating stronger connections
with old friends. Talking to Dad. Not talking to Mom. Looking for a
second job. Attempting to save money again. Paying more attention to
detail. Not smoking so much. Not complaining as often. Searching for an
apartment to move into. Searching for a new car to drive. Slowly
re-doing my wardrobe. Trying to stay connected with family. Finding
comfort and happiness.

I Open

such a strange thing to me
the length of a century
and we remember everything
worth remembering
once we were children
I remember it so differently
photographs prove me wrong
my grace, I am a key
unlocking memories
somehow I keep them safe
protected by bone and skin
not for any
nor with any
other key
I open.
