Dash Between The Dates

There is significance

Between gravestone dates – life; death

Much more than a dash

Inside the bookends

Birth and death

That little dash

For some

Was not so simple

And hardly lived in a straight line

For others

It was too short

And not lived at all.

I could get through life just fine quoting heavy metal lyrics.

    1. Thanks, Carole. I always figured there would be some internal growing-up process to match the trnaoformatisn taking place on the outside, but so far, not so much. I do feel better equipped to find comfort with my inherently oddball self, but that’s pretty much it for maturity :;-D
