semi ; colon

Today I find myself on pause;
at last I have been found.
I end one noisy first-part clause;
now silence is a blessed sound.

The period, not my punctuation;
I tried that once and failed, thank God.
Did not believe self-actualization;
I was wrong that time (so odd).

Maslow has a point, it’s topped;
it seemed beyond my reach.
Climbing edifices wrong, I stopped;
time to un-learn, time to un-teach.

But semicolons have a rule;
another clause – it’s own – to come.
Independent – one rare jewel;
still, connected to the first – one sum.

I’ll start that next part soon, I think;
I’m ready – pretty sure.
Deconstructed – heart in sync;
I didn’t know I could endure.

Today I find myself on pause;
at last I have been found.
I end one noisy first-part clause;
now silence is a blessed sound.


semicolon; read by the author

“A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.”
