New beginnings..

I see myself at the start of the race,
Alone: no crowd, no cheers; no sun, just rain;
I see a dream, in the drops, on my face,
It calls me home, past the clouds, past the pain.

Hey! Is it worth?
Didn’t I fall
last time I followed
my heart’s voice?

I leave the doubt, expect the best, and smile,
I may have slipped, fell hard and hurt myself,
but I, am strong; I see the dream to soar,
I see myself at the start of the race.

(’12, Oct 01)

Poetry & writing to me 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.
