Come Back Quietly

 
 
 
I don’t know what I was expecting
a standing ovation?
or maybe orchestras blaring to life

letters in the mail reading: Congratulations!
a ticker tape parade maybe
or an award
a plaque would have been nice

even an open palm against my back
or a good, enthusiastic shoulder shaking
but no
as hard as it was, it was only another Thursday

and I made it through
to come back quietly

One thought on “Come Back Quietly

  1. Always hardest to continue when the audience has turned its back, (or never opened its eyes). But words still need to be given birth. It’s what widwives do.
