Under the bridge the water will flow Like pains that the heart learned to let go
Above the bridge Sunflare Brilliantly it glows
Shining guidance to repair Resiliency in shadows
Water under the bridge letting go of shame Toward a new sunset walking free from blame
Bright future and dark past hanging in the air Stuck Held fast between hope and despair
In each moment, each breath
There hangs a choice, a question a test
Go back? Upstream? Back to familiar pains, relief
Or let go? To the light? Forward, feeling joy even through grief
Another chance to view
As something made brand new
O.k. so even though there are clouds in this photo you will be thankful to see not a single stanza or rhyme about clouds so showing my range right? (I did tinker with a little bit of cloudy present between future and past, clouds like pain, never meant to last… sorry I couldn’t help it!)
At any rate when I saw this sunset after dropping off my kids at their mom’s it made me think of the thousands of choices we have every day…. then the thousands of wrong choices I’ve made…. and the tens of right choices (nearly tens)…
Every moment of our life is a chance and I really love that thought because it means I don’t have to be defined by the wrong I’ve done, I can start writing a new definition with every passing breath.
The one big choice we can make is defined by 2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!
I wonder should I have a distinction between my poems and me talking about my poems… I was hoping that the poetry would sort of let you know when it’s over, even though I don’t let it speak for itself. Either way thanks for stopping by, there are so may broken people out there (one is in here… in my head) but there is so much healing available. Don’t be afraid to be broken, because then you can be built back up!
