Personal Survival

Written by: Michael Todd

Realization comes now finding me lying bed low telling me that it's only one future I've lost, there are others for my choosing. At this moment another one has already begun. Green grass cut weekly still grows back. So drastic a change it undergoes as I have undergone, yet it lives, adapts, accepts quietly with little resistance. Nature always replacing and rebuilding just as I must replace and rebuild my dreams, my future, myself. Others survive, I can too, I will. Yes, I'll live. (August 1977)
