Born Again

Let the sun don't shine today. Let the moon not come out tonight, or the stars give their light. Just let me be alone this night. Without anybody, just myself and my soul. I will reflect on my life and also my memories. Don't knock on my door, or call me on the phone. I will not answer. Tonight - I just want to be alone. What I have done and What I have been, will die with me tonight. Life has not been easy. I had my ups and downs. But tonight I will die and my past will die with me. Tomorrow when the sun comes out, I will be born again. The moon will come out and the stars will shine and a new life I will start...

    Beautiful expressions of a rebirth Luilla; sometimes we need to bury the past and open the door that waits for us. Hope that new life is better for you! Luv, Lizabeth

    Often when we have been subject to major misfortunes, and our self esteem is at its lowest ebb, we feel useless to ourselves and all others. Never give up! Work on loving YOURSELF, the love of others and all things will come, and it sounds like you have found your way. God bless, Keith

    a very interesting one. I have never quite felt this way. I guess I always enjoy my solitude and just keep staying the same old me! But I could feel your sincerity with this poem. VERY nicely done. Luv,Andrea

    this is a good way to start but i think of born again is something you do with Jesus. not by yourself.

    Hello, Lucilla, The true natural feeling of the sun not shining, ‘Just to be reborn again… Do not bang when change is happening, I Love the image of the the needed alone time, I’m wondering When my tomorrows view will take place. Every time I bump into a Revelation, someone comes a knocking at my door, this sure has inspiration, all the way. Thank you always..PD.
