All Things Considered

All things considered, I’m doing quite well

For I am no stranger to heartbreak

Disappointment 

Or failure.

When you have been let down by so many 

So many times

You become quite the expert at moving forward. 

Drudging through the mud and the muck of empty promises

And the realization that you have once again been played the fool.

For in the end, if your actions were rooted in love

There is no reason to feel ashamed.

You simply took a chance

A chance that anyone would have taken.

The prospect of something so frighteningly real it takes your breath away.

And when you find you were wrong

It is so unbelievably painful

That for a moment it may seem like you will never rise again.

But you will.

And some day you will look back on this moment and be thankful

For the scars on our hearts 

May be just the reminder we need

To keep us from making the same mistakes

In the end there is only you

So dust yourself off

Learn from the past 

And create one hell of a future!

Morning Poetry

In the early hours of morning

When the dew dangles on the grass

And nature just begins to wake

I am at peace

The air is thickened with quiet

And my brain has barely stirred

Thrills of unknown excitement lay before me

As I open myself up to the day

No expectation

Only the full embrace of its conception

There is great power here

The power of now

The ability to appreciate

Not just the day

But each and every moment

For you never know

Which of those moments may change your life
