The Move

Prompts for Hour Thirteen  Write a poem about a time when something really bad happened…that later turned out to be a good thing. – a prompt by Harvey Schwartz

It didn’t seem to make much sense.

We had our home and work.

Our son decided to try and take

His life one spring that day.


We took him to a hospital,

In hopes to save his way.

He then returned with better thoughts

But one thing was quite clear.


A move was needed for his life

We moved to pave new ways

It wasn’t without pain or strife.

He’s good to this good day.
