Taking Step - Poem by John Hazon Palen

Like this brisk, mountain air's hymn,
And sun's warm greetings,
With each night's clear skies,
May my brilliant past remain,
And be my own guide!

Confusion got me drowning.
Crossroads here holler.
Am I ready to face fate?
Crush fear of failure.

This morning's dawn ain't so bad.
Our scarlet town awakes.
My life's next pages unfolds.
There's no drill to take.

I have to get myself right,
Strong and on good side.
You said forget not to look back.
Keep leaning on God.

Believe in the call of your feelings
Ain't pile of peebles.
No one can resist the change.
Just give it your all.

The unknown future's in front.
Grab it, take a chance.
Happy memories can't be gone.
Let you be enhanced.

You'll need light in all the way.
Darkness can kill dreams.
I hang on your every word.
There's no time to waste.

I recall when I felt light.
God's good all the time.
Shedding tears helps straight things out.
You'd be fine somehow.

This time's a new chapter in life,
Where who you are counts.
Everyone might get surprised.
No turning back now.

I have a duty to survive.
I long realized.
Glad you know why I shouldn't hide.
Its right in your eyes.

My family's my treasure.
Their firm support's ours.
So bury your aches thru prayers.
Living still is moving on.
A moment. We're one.
We musn't loose faith in our own power.

The ache I'm talking about is the helplessness one could see when he'll try to flashforward things revolving around him.
