The Wisdom I see

My mind knows what my heart starts,
Darkness surrounds yet clouds play their parts.
On the other side I can find my way,
I’m thankful to see, just another day.

Sometimes when I’m sad this is not so,
I still plant seeds yet nothing can grow.
Sometimes the changes in life are abrupt,
I speak my mind but don’t mean to interrupt.

When the words come I simply do say,
They part the clouds that get in the way.
I seem to understand after a while,
What I have heard brings such a smile.

The day comes to a close like many before,
I look to the sky, imagine what’s in store.
I can wonder all I want yet it doesn’t change a thing,
Heartbreak and regrets are the prize they bring.

Silence surrounds as I hear a birds song,
It adheres to my soul I simply hang on.
I watch to see some new pieces break free,
Many of the pieces were inside of me.

The ones that seem lost I try to find,
I pause for a second but get left behind.
I think of those pieces like parts of myself,
I search for the life I left upon the shelf.

I know I can’t always get what I want,
The rope around my neck seems to get taunt.
Still there is the hope that I can break free.
A man with his words with the wisdom he sees.
