2017 Day-By-Day

Day 44

Fitting The Pieces

My life is

lived in groups

of three. Daughter,

niece, friend. Coworker,

employee, helper. Teacher,

student, writer. Daydreamer,

wisher, wanderer. Hispanic,

Filipino, Jewish. Dark

and light and

gray. Floating but

never setting down

roots. I feel

split, like I’m

a million different

puzzle pieces that

don’t quite fit.

I’m not even

sure that they

are meant to

fit together, but

then where does

that leave me?
