Awakened Years I slept without even a dream Or so I thought it seemed My soul upon the pillow of rest Rid my mind and body of all the stress Found myself finally opening my eyes Awakened at the stroke of sunrise Feeling its light shine within my core Warmth that I’ve never touched before My soul has become rejuvenated Painful memories are now faded An open space for my spirit to flourish Upon a hope that will leave me nourished Now, my words are awakened on paper I penned Words blossomed from a road that I had to trend All the tears now are laid to rest Upon haunting shadows of past stress Leaving me with the opportunity Of writing a style of poetry One that expresses the journeys I faced Through a soul of a blossomed trace
