Releasing Me

The choice is mine, to spend my time where seagulls sing for me A day to play beneath the sun, have fun and feel no shame My chores undone, but my heart is won by everything I see Not often have I felt so sure, or found a cure to claim I'll leave behind the pace the grind that keeps me on the run Without a doubt, I want to shout, and thank the sun above I'll hide away, and have a day, perhaps if only one We are meant to have a miracle, a moment's breath to love To pull down shades, on a sunny day, and grieve of life's demands are not for me, I'll smile instead, assured of something more Beneath the sky, I'll watch the waves roll in to wash the sand and put on hold the old routine, that bores me to the core To find myself, a sense of peace, a second step begins All by myself, I will release, the breath I've held within +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 6/20/14 Battle of the Honorable Mentions Contest Sponsor: Richard Lamoureux
