VA Medical Center--Albany, NY

One year minus--until what?
Make a plan. What is next?
Return to college.
Change of lifestyle.   

Five years gone.
Almost completed
my special education degree
minus student teaching.
Loss of son, my love.
Foe went to prison.
How do I go on?  

Ten years gone.
I am lost; I need help.
Floundering.
Can’t get out of my own way.
Asked for help.
Went to school
for massage therapy .
Learned.
Have a better understanding
of mind, body and soul.  

Twenty years gone.
Started Art4vets.
Giving back. Found a tribe.
Belong. I have a purpose.
Completed
human services degree
at age 65.
