The Mystery Of Life...


As Winter slowly approaches
And the crisp morning air touches my cheek
I wonder about tomorrow
So many unanswered questions
An endless circle of confusion
like a broken record milling through my head
I watch as new life forms
a promise of a new beginning
And I dream of a perfect day
Anticipation in wild abandon
My heart beating loudly in my ears
A love so sacred and real
I stand in awe of my transformation
My mind in turmoil
Wondering
Waiting
Barely breathing
Wondering what all this means
For in the quiet of twilight
Golden memories and wasted years
I see it clearly
I taste the saltiness of tears
The mystery of life
A new season of unknown fears
A new me
And with the Winter breeze
What will blow this way for me?

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
