I chose to walk away,

rather than dwell in the dreary

nature of feeling sorry for myself.

I thought of better ways,

fresher thought,

just really appreciating a sunrise

rather than simply talking about

it so I could be heard,

so somebody might believe me

without my actually experiencing it.

I decided to leave pain behind,

for it had given me enough strength

to now know beauty,

the wondrous nature of love

in all of its magic,

setting a tone

for how we live our lives,

how I live my own,

rather than dwell upon the beaten path,

perhaps there is a new shadow

leads us back into that sunlight

radiates such energy

that we take deep breaths,

we reach out

we hold the world in our minds

and express only love.
