Michael McParland (7-19-1983 / Dayton, Ohio)
An odd and strange brew of feelings that have mixed up in me.
A sense of sad filled loss with a glaze of remorse.
But at the opposite yet same exact end
a brewing of things that are completely contradictory
and yet they are fitting right in.
A feeling of contentment with a very subdued happiness
with contentment that comes with
finally having taken on a task of great need
that had to be done
in a serious patient and calm attitude.
Improvement for sure over how it would have gone
just a few short months ago
no doubt I've taken a step of great importance,
and now I move forward learning each path that I take
the importance of taking it one step at a time
and trying diligently to always stay patient
for sometimes you must stop and take it all in.
Before you move on any one thing.
