Poem: illumination – 05/11/21

falling apart
sometimes I feel I’m falling away
from the tapestry which I have woven and I say
with great distress
was it all worth it
come what may?

But is one night enough
to determine upsets from within,
can work of months, weeks be seen
as all dreams?
No, no no. I do not dare to
fly away,
disappear from the annals, the history
of yesterday,

for while I made mistakes
and felt out of control
the truth is I am always here
to improve and grow.
time shall show her shy contented face
and allow the moon to wane and wax lyrical
her tunes varying, never the same,
for she wants to share her luminosity
with me,
I cannot help but understand how she
desires to remain,
to be.
and I vow to be like her
bright, hopeful, glowing with effervescence
and I know that if I keep
a solid mindset
something built with inner strength
I’ll make it through the occasional storm
I won’t mind them
anymore.

      1. Considering the place I have been today, they guided my vision upwards when I was looking down. Indeed, they were a part of the help I received today to find my way out of a deep hole that, at one point, I wanted to fall further into.

        Thanks again.
