My New Begining - Poem by Shelly Price
It never ceases to amaze me,
how life continues to change.
One minute, one hour, one day you're here...
and the next, life has been re-arranged.
The two of our lives were so inner-mingled,
I never imagined us living apart.
But here I am standing alone at a crossroad...
with a brand new life, making a brand new start.
I never wanted to go it alone...
in you I thought I'd won the grand prize.
But for some, when the going gets tough...
the tough politely wave their good byes.
It only hurts when I breathe...
breathing in and out an emptiness so vast.
I'm lost in a desert oasis, where I thirst...
unable to fly my colors of life at full mass.
I continue to search relentlessly...
trying to find myself buried within the debris.
Daily I rediscover pieces from the wreckage...
of a person that I know can only be me.
A million insecurities I face with fear...
they come racing at me in my head.
Today I choose to face those fears...
and bury the life with you that is dead.
which direction will I finally take?
Indecision is not an option for me anymore...
the right choices for me I now must make.
I know you'll put your money on my failure...
you don't think I can play to win.
Today I must move on without you...
without you is where I now will begin.
