Incomplete – A Poem by Ali Grimshaw

the-pilgrim

Submitted by Ali Grimshaw

In the unfinished

before the credits scroll past

can you choose acceptance

without an end,

before the conclusion

without approval from the crowd?

Between the ribs, within

deeply, a voice

the one you used to hear

before you thought the others

were the ones that mattered

knew better and overruled your soul.

Before you decided

who you weren’t going to be.
