A Change in Thinking


I'm alive and finally clear
About the reason I am here.
It was something that I longed for through the years.

Many times I wondered why
That at night sometimes I'd cry.
It was cleansing out my body through my tears.

I was happy with my life
As a mother and a wife.
But, still was living with the same old fears.

I knew something was missing.
My brain kept on insisting
To change my perception of how the world appears.

And then I started healing
And changed how I was feeling.
It opened all the doors to new frontiers.

I'm feeling so at peace now
In finding out that somehow
That tolerance for all is what endears.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
