She told me
that she believed in the covenant of marriage,
that she had decided to leave her husband,
that she had fallen in love with a woman,
that stories don’t always end the way you expect,
that she still had God at her back.
I told her I envied her courage and
she looked me in the eye and told me
to never forget that my script
can be rewritten at any time,
that I can change the ending
and still have God at my back.
I felt the strength of her courage and faith
and can continue to write and rewrite
my never-ending story
with God most certainly at my back.
