Here’s To The End Of This Chapter

by Danielle Doby

To all the late nights, early mornings, learnings gained

and experiences shared. Here’s to the hardships that

became our teachers. To the heaviness that taught us

how to rise again. And to the people who would stop

their world to sit and celebrate our presence. Here’s to

the times we close feeling over disconnection.

Freedom over perfection. Courage over what’s known

and certain. And doing the work. Here’s to releasing

what wasn’t ours to teach or carry. Here’s to palms wide

open to new blessings. Here’s to taking one step

forward into the hope and possibility of tomorrow.
