Epiphany

I woke up this morning and had an epiphany Things aren’t always as they seem Sometimes we gaze through rose-coloured glasses Imagining things in the shadows
I woke up this morning and had an epiphany People wear masks Different colours, different styles A desperate attempt to hide what they really are Blurring the line between friend and foe
I woke up this morning and had an epiphany So different we are, you and me Though I hadn’t seen it before I beg your pardon coz I mistook us for two peas in a pod
I woke up this morning and had an epiphany We spend so much of our lives working for achievements Money, fame, glory But the happiness brought on by the presence of loved ones around us in one minute Is incomparable to 4 years worth of school/office work
I woke up this morning and had an epiphany That the world isn’t always sunshine and butterflies Sometimes you’ve gotta bite the bullet But the sunshine sure feels warm on your skin
I woke up this morning and had an epiphany Your greatest desire may not be your…

Sunshine, Raindrops and roses

Image
Sunshine Beautiful, warm ever-present sunshine It was all around me Almost blinding me Suddenly
Clouds Dark and threatening Angry and roiling Bringing a rain so cold I couldn’t feel my bones A wind so strong like I’d never known


Darkness Empty gnawing darkness Binding me Destroying all sense of direction Full of terrors I wouldn’t want to mention
Hole A deep dark hole in the ground Full of desperation that bound Leaving me with nothing to grope for
Sadness Enveloping me Consuming me On death’s doorstep leaving me Without an escape Petals White perfectly-formed petals A single rose Showing its defiance It’s refusal to die in that terrible place

Realization If it could make it then why couldn’t I That there must be one who cares for this fragile flower Maybe care for me too A higher power
Golden The colour of the shaft of light Lighting the path of my climb Leading me where I could survive

Resolve To use what I had To learn to be glad To start anew To refuse to give up
