Hope Deferred

Slivers of my life
Lay strewn around

As from a shattered mirror

Beauty is reflected
From what has transpired

When light shines on the glass

Yet shards of dreams 
Remain unfulfilled

Untouched amongst splinters

Former goals impossible 
To rectify appear gone 

Unless the Lord repurposes

Old aspirations
Into new beginnings

A wife, mother and proud grandmother, Lori Wall-Holloway resides in Pasadena, California, where her poetry appears in several of the area’s anthologies. She enjoys capturing moments in the lives of those she loves and hopes her work will give encouragement to subsequent generations.
