The Reflection of Shadows
A collection of moments
What Once Was
What once was bad is gone, is dead,
For new thoughts bloom within my head.
New thoughts of hope and love and light
Have turned the rust to iron might.
Days that never ended did.
Worries came and went and fled.
Nights that stretched for hours passed.
Brighter chances came at last.
Old thoughts haunting- nevermore.
Burned the bridges, built some more.
Turned the key and locked the past,
Opened new doors, took a chance.
Took the risk to blossom fully
Walked right through the fire’s fury,
Opened my heart, scared but willing-
Onward toward a new beginning.
