Change

“Things do not change. We change.” – Henry David Thoreau

never did have the courage;
to go forth and conquer
what once daunted my mind,
held me back in shackles
of self-doubt, hopelessness.
the same obstacles, tonight
seem but meager, footnotes
in a journey to success; one
that will be fruitful soon.
I’m not who I was yesterday.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
