Looking Back


It has been a moment since I actually sat down to write

Sat down to detox and allow my brain to take flight

It has been moment since the last time I was able to feel

A moment since my emotions were so real

There was a mental block

Which had a lock but I couldn’t find the key

All these years of searching

I never noticed the key was within me

We sit and wait for others to define our now

We hold our breath

Never exhaling

Our lives begin spiraling

Wow…

This was never the way it was meant to be

There’s world full sunshine

Yet we sit under the tree

A tree with one limb

No leaves

Thus no shade

We dare not move

Because we’ve grown so afraid

Of change

Well

I’ve changed

You see, it has been a moment since I actually sat down to write

Sat down to detox and allow my brain to take flight

For years I was searching for something

I didn’t think exists

During my searching, there were so many things that I missed

Alas, there’s a hill, a tree, a bench, and a gift

The sun is shining I can feel her warmth on my lips

Now I close my eyes and recall that which was missed

That which was found

Though I didn’t think it would ever exist…
