A Second Look at Life-Every Sunrise Brings a New Day

An experience with despair need not end there.  Every sunrise brings a new day.

A Second Look

While I traveled through
The back pages of my mind
In search of something meaningful
To calm my awareness of failure,

I realized under layers of
Forgotten dreams
That my heart had been disappointed
To the Point of Despair

Leaving me empty,
And with a feeling of total loss
For words or ideas, to compensate
For lost time and lost ideals

Sadly broken and torn with grief
I quietly put my mind together
And, walking away slowly,
I tried again once more.
