Poem - Harsh Charms

The poem “Harsh Charms” was inspired by a Laurie Halse Anderson quote: “I have survived. I am here. Confused, screwed up, but here”.


Harsh Charms

I’ve survived, now I’m here
in the moment of my fear
wondering what waits in the fog
the curtain hiding what’s beyond

nothing’s constant, that I learned
by the change both good and bad
a wheel turning to move or crush
by some choice or by force

the slow illusion hid this fact
then I awoke and saw the truth
recognition was denied
of where I was in my life

awareness is this moment’s grace
endurance was the final gift
warning of what’s to come
past the veil of life’s harsh charms.
