Because light as I know it leaves a shadow behind, I so often focus on the memories of what could have been. Sadly I seldom see, nor do I realize how beautiful can be the vision I command of my reality.
Leave Your Baggage Behind
This haven for lost souls I have journeyed to
is an affirmation of the potential for happiness,
nothing more, nothing less
I read a sign at the front gate
others might have missed
in their haste to find happiness.
It said leave your baggage behind
if you are so inclined
The snow is as pure and white
as I have ever known it. Observable Fact!
or is it that I feel a cleansing,
a de-saddening of old and useless issues
simply because I believe
I am where I want to be.
Crisp and clean the air it seems all so crystal clear,
feeling clarity of belief,
or is it a free flowing confessional,
an issuing forth of all that disturbs,
an otherwise perfect union of self and selflessness
for no other reason than
searching for a place to just be
When one is true to oneself and humble,
one surely, becomes authentic
