Poem 1 4/06/10

I am happy to be alive.

I am happy that tomorrow I have another day to appreciate the greatness in even the smallest things.  The world brings us gifts wrapped in dandelions preparing to set sail, blow me a kiss and send me flying forward to carry your dreams to reality, kiss me softly like God’s gentle hand brushing away every tear I’ve cried for dreams not realized, but I finally realizing that the horizon is my own limitation, flatlining my own dreams not seeing the miracle that are birthed every time I open my eyes, every time I see a single blade of grass, kissing the sun through a concrete nightmare, I see my own small self reaching up towards the sun, showering in the rays of my own glorious light, shine bright…. light the sky with your life, what are you waiting for..
