Seemingly, today was a new day
Too bad it didn’t look like it
On my desk laid the tea cup I’d sipped from the night before
Not that the desk was recognizable
Piles of papers,books, bills, and unwanted mail surrounded my laptop on its last leg
Sort of looked like my life
Messy, unorganized, and out of control
A few years back things were in order
So, I thought.
Now, life had me
Trying to find
Peace of mind
Because I’d forgot.
An assurance that everything would be alright.
How could everything be alright when the situations in my life said all wrong?
Things can’t possibly be alright
By the look of things I’d say the buck stops here.
I have nothing, but to rest
Hush, child and close your eyes
Now, tell me what do you see
I see mysteries, people, and places I’ve never looked for
Every hope, dream is being fulfilled, and more
The only question is
How do I get there?
When I look I can’t see.
Looking causes me to stumble at all of life’s setbacks, plights, and failings,
Seeing causes me to walk strong, steady, and tall.
My sight is full of light
In the darkest hour of night
I’m defeating giants and moving mountains
It’s morning with no sun
Once was blind, but now…
I see more with my eyes shut.
