Once Upon A Time

Once Upon a Time #drjohnaking #poetry
Not every story ends with a

“happy ever after”

but they all lead to a new

“Once upon a time”


This to me is a simple thought, a wonderful thought.

From this point in my life I can’t look at my future and see a ‘happy ever after’, I just can’t see it.

However I do believe that if I keep walking, breathing, forgiving, seeking, and loving, that there will come a time, when my children will talk with fondness of the man who overcame great and seemingly insurmountable obstacles to give them a life he never had.

That to me is an ending that I could live and die with.

Peace and Grace

    Your words really touched me. We all have our sorrows and pain. Thank you for letting me know that you exist and that sharing can help ease the pain.
    As a single mother, I always ask my self will I be able to give my daughter perspective that there are bad people too and not to frighten her with that…
