Resurrected from Rubble

Resurrected from Rubble www.jessicamcollette.com

Milestones and memories
Collected and stacked
One on top of the other
They continually amass;

Chips off the block
Separately weak
Mortared together
The story’s complete;

Mishandling conflict
Creates crumbling dust:
Respecting life lessons
Learning to trust;

Where you are,
The road you’ve taken there,
Your steps not yet traveled
Are not a path to nowhere;

But part of a strong structure
Built over time,
A monument resurrected from rubble
Representing a lifetime.
