Opening The Blind

Rating: 5.0

I am. Today. At last.
A new me
Opens his eyes
The first light of morning breaks
The long night is over.

The past is past
Informing
Infusing my life’s blood with wisdom
Those who have deceived
Those who have hurt
Those who have betrayed
Are banished
This day.
Those who love
Those who give
Those who know
These I embrace
And invite
On a road not taken.

The future beckons
With possibility. And challenge.
But the present. Ah, Today. Now. This moment.
I breathe
The deep breath of being.

This day. This time.
Time
Is mine.
