The Other Side
Life dropped me
into the middle of a great lake
To swim or to sink?
I wasn’t sure
Every movement I made to
made cuts in its perfect surface
Only now I see it
for what it is
Because we cannot find love
We become it
We are the children
Of our own hopes
We are the One
Who has our back
Who blows us into life after life
We are the flight home

Halina Goldstein fell in love with words and writing when she was 5 years old. The relationship suffered from her family’s emigration to Denmark. Fortunately, where her native Polish withered, seeds of English found fertile ground. Since then, Halina has been drawn to attempting the impossible: expressing that which cannot be expressed.
Halina writes poetry and fiction, as well as non-fiction. Aside from her own books, she has contributed to a few literary magazines.
Her books and her Awakening to Joyful Living work can be found at HalinaGold.com.
