Ready

All day long I use words
to express myself.
In my teaching.
With my kids.
In my writing and in editing.
I take for granted
those words will be there,
always within my reach.
And yet, today, I find that I'm speechless.
Tongue-tied.
Inarticulate.
Unable to utter anything other than profanities.
I'm not sure how to find the words to say what I need to say.
Maybe they aren't ready.
Maybe I'm not ready.
I'm not sure I ever will be.
