Getting lost is not a waste of time

I open my eyes ~ free verse

I open my eyes

with trepidation at first

when the storm is at its worst

relinquishing what I had nursed

I open my eyes

to precious delusions

in paths of tenets and expectations

for a life beyond dimensions

I open my eyes

and let them see

from the purest depths of me

a gentle, beautiful, imperfect, reality

And then...I breathe

  1. I, Can Breathe

    I don’t own much
    I don’t owe much
    I share what I have
    I have hope and love……

    Oh, we, the drowned
    We, the broken
    We, the leftover pieces
    We, hoping for peace

  2. A well penned reflection on a beautiful look within! It is amazing how wonderful it is to be able to see and accept ourselves. The last line is perfection – we do finally breathe/live when we are able to love what we see!!!!
