Autumn In Life

Written by: Zaida Ruiz

Traveling sullenly 
Through the worst season
Of my life
I watch hope fall
Like autumn leaves
I stand against the rising chill
And beckon my soul to come
And lift itself out of hibernation
And back to a place and time
When everything had
Possibilities
And it was so bright that the entire world
Seemed familiar and not so 
Strange and forbidding
