Place Of Joy - Poem by Katherine Bryce

A glistening gray path,
encased on both sides
by emerald green grass.
Golden as the sun, leaves over my head,
with long jagged branches pointing to each leaf.

The way I came from
is marked with my tears,
so now I hope the path I follow,
shows me nothing but joy.
'Joy, ' oh, how I've longed to say that word,
a place of freedom; a place of love; a place of a new beginning; the true desires of my heart will meet me there,
in that place of 'joy'.

    A nice poem. Good to know you are heading for a place of joy:
    a place of freedom; a place of love; a place of a new beginning; the true
    desires of my heart will meet me there,
    in that place of 'joy'.
    So nice!
