New Look

 It has taken too long to look into the mirror
ten years to really see what lies within
the pictures began to haunt me
 A spirit had come over me
to show me the way off the dirt road
leading me up mountains
 Where my name echoes 
like music
my face shines bright as the sun
 Tears well up
drowning all that I once was ashamed of
fill me with a new pride
 Yesterday is no more
all that I once for 
remains in the ashes
today is a new day

    I was gone and did not read any poetry the past weekend. So I am trying to get some read today. I am pleased that yours is among what I have read today and I have enjoyed reading it. I hope you have a wonderful week filled with inspiration Donny. Love, Carol
