The Healing

 The Healing

“Once you choose hope, anything is possible.”

--Christopher Reeve.


in the dumpster,

and Biden’s

in the oval office,


of the behemoth


I feel like

anything is possible.


our circumstances

are dire,

but a torrent

of new days,


the possibilities.

The darkness

is dense,


I see

the light.

Yes, yes most definitely! 💝 The era of darkness has come to an end and we are left with a thousand possibilities before us. The future awaits. Bright and prosperous. Yayy 💝

Glenn, I especially love these lines:
"a torrent

of new days,


the possibilities."

Oh... if only... it seems like half the US population is turning their back to wait another four years. said...

AMEN to that! There truly is a light at the end of the tunnel....just wish we would reach that opening before January 20th! I do believe the Republicans are going to need to make an intervention soon as this buffoon is causing so much harm by not granting Biden access to Covid teams, security briefings etc.

Merril D. Smith said...

I feel the same way. There is hope and possibilities now.

Kim M. Russell said...

Things are starting to look up for you all. Let's hope Biden comes up with a good plan to get Covid under control.

Gillena Cox said...

Congratulations on your new Government

Happy Monday

We all see a bit of light, but it's ambitious to think he will go away. He will be gathering his minions and sewing seeds of discontent, all for the glory it gives him that they believe his lies. Mein Godt, the man could lead a revolution, shouting "Charge!" to his ragtaggle militia! It's the stuff of nightmares.

Ron. Lavalette said...

Even in full daylight, the nightmare remains.

Super piece Glenn. The one promising thing is, once he is out of the White House, his Secret Service team becomes much much smaller.

Any other choice is intolerable at this point. I think Bjorn is right though, half the nation will dig in and wait for 4 years. I won't let their tantrums stop me from enjoying the now.

Arcadia Maria said...

I had a feeling you would write about this. Haha. We all hope for better days ahead. Nicely done.

Grace said...

I feel so much better already! Good days are ahead!

Truedessa said...

I too see the light through this tunnel of darkness.

Dwight L. Roth said...

2021 will be the year of new possibilities!!

M Jay Dixit said...

A torrent of new days!

lynn__ said...

But now, what will you write about, Glenn?

Ingrid said...

It is indeed great to see the light at the end of the dark, Trumpian tunnel. I just hope Biden does enough to avert total climate catastrophe.

A Reading Writer said...

and i celebrate with you and your countrymen, Glenn!

Linda Lee Lyberg said...

He's a horrid man and I am glad we will be rid of him soon. well done Glenn!

Helen said...

I am beginning to see light at the end of the long dark tunnel, however he keeps on keeping on which is terrifying.

Ken Gierke said...

I'm looking forward to the light, but wary of a recurring shadow. said...

I finally see some light, but need the whole transition thing to be over.
