Misssion

mission

Did you make it through another day? 

If you’re reading this, you did.  Maybe I didn’t.  That’s not the point.  The point is you did.  All I was supposed to do was make it far enough to hand this off to you, and I did. 

My mission, accomplished.  Now, what’s your mission? 

What are you handing off to the next someone?  What will they hand off to the next?  Not my mission, not my monkeys.  I always wanted to say that.  My mission wasn’t to manage yours, it was to finish mine, and I did.  I know that because here you are, with my mission in your hands, making it your own. 

Did you make it through another day? 

If you wrote this, you did.

Today

There are days

when I think I have

lived long enough

 

Days after birthdays

and when holidays have

passed for the year

 

Personal days of remembrance

anniversaries

and deaths

 

Days of finality

after celebration

or mourning

 

Days that follow

the emptying

of my soul

 

Days I can’t remember

why I’ve hung on

for so long

 

Today.
