New Life - Poem by Michael J. Burt
five long years...
to date...this journey is finally becoming easier
as each hour, day, and month...pass me by
joy is what i feel,
and it feels so real
new life has just begun.
how could all of that pleasure,
bring me so much pain?
i couldn’t have been thinking.
this new life is worth it...and so good
it all began with me,
i did this for me.
acknowledgement and acceptance was my cure
now the pain is gone,
finally this time.
death is what happened...to me...or what i thought was me
when new life arrives,
the old must part...
and sadly this time feels good
this rollercoaster has ended
i have made up my mind.
i shall stand, for what i believe,
what i feel
be...who i am.
this new life is ready.
it started with me...
i must continue it alone
