Poems

Authentically Myself

241

I never wanted you to think I’m harsh or cold

It just occurred to me, that I have been bold

This occasion presents changes before my eyes

All the sudden the gray has passed me by

No more need to morn and cry

Life is so lovely, here are the reasons why:

The sun greets me every morning I rise

Birds outside my window sing with surprise

The days gracefully pass and I enjoy my time

Even if my stories have not much rhyme

I work hard on goals and dreams

My purpose is not always what it seems

It splices often like rays and beams

Of light shining as I run through the park

I see the beauty even in the pure dark

There is splendor in the depression

Unilluminated valiant confession

My smile feels authentic when it comes from my heart

Not when it is mustered and simply playing a part

Much Love Much Life
