a reflection.

it is a wonder
the back slowly turning on another year.
all the joy and pain that has been felt.
all the reminders
of being only human
and to slow down
and to breathe.
it is a strange thing
to still be alive
in the wake of tragedy and failure
and continue wanting to live.
oh, how i’ve let my own tears
spill off my cheeks
and quietly caress my spirit
only to wake up the next morning
with restored faith in everything.
it has gone by in a flash
but how those grand moments
stand out so vividly
showing happiness
is attainable
and we are makers of our futures
sages because of our pasts
holy temples carrying the sacred texts
of all lessons learned
and giant black holes in space
ready to swallow up
another year unfolding.
