Kellie Elmores Free Write Friday continues today with a guest post from Kelley Rose. So here is my contribution this week.

Each choice, a crossroads
limits and opens direction,
one way or the other.

Each growing layer of a journey
can gain a stone, like a pearl
hidden inside our skin

showing only when, 
the princess sleeps on the mattress
that hides the pea, beneath

a mountainous bed.
Pearls, scar tissue, choices
and time.

Happenings build to be
the people we are at any time
and at any time, we carry our past.
