Poetry Contest: Never Lost, Just Misplaced

by Susan Wirth Fusco

What have I never lost?

Well – – lost my dignity from time to time – –

my poise
my judgment
my scruples
my mind.

But that which I have never lost?

The belief in my capacity

to renew
to rebuild
to decorate

And otherwise

to consecrate myself

To the illimitable challenges ahead.
