Try New Ways

Try New Ways Signboard - - Poetry

When you’re hurting & broken
and don’t know which way to turn

Try New Ways.

When you’ve reached the end of yourself

Try New Ways.

When the words & the tone & the feeling & the heart
all come out brittle & angry & war torn,

Try New Ways.

When the sound of your own voice
reminds you of the direction
you do not want to go

Try New Ways.

Start small – with a whisper, even –
but try new ways.

Here’s the truth:

You are heart sick & war torn
& gasping for breath


you are also
human & frail & strong
& humble & kind
& loving & loved.

You are all of these things.

When you get to the end of yourself
and you make the choice
to let go of hurt
and hang on to Love

Do it. Just let go.

Love will carry you farther than pain ever did.

Try. New. Ways.
