Poetry V

Light (2008 )

I stand on the edge.
Light spilling over the water,
Throwing brilliant jewels into the sky.
As the breeze scatters my hair
I breathe.

The horizon beckons
With promises of dreams fulfilled.
The expanse of the ocean
Spreading before me,
A path for the journey.

The sun breaks through the clouds
Warming the earth around me
And my heart within.
I have come so far
And I know I can go on.

I turn and smile to myself.
After what feels like eternity
The darkness has receded.
I have won this fight.
And I move forward.
