The Fears of a Reverie is What Set Me Free

The depth of my darkness encompassed me in my youth.
It took a few years for sorrow to envelope me as if I was a
willow weeping tossing tissues of deepening remorse and pain.  

Then-
Soon I saw the bottom of a rock. 

And- 
It was then I needed a hope so strong that the magic that holds
the stars up in the sky collapse and stardust descends gracefully. 
Anticipation of a brighter kismet became my inner most light and
my darkest demon- the kind that fears nothing, the kind that fears. 

But-
The medallion sunset in the eventide of life was my brilliant beacon.
It shined like a sangria sky in the dead cold of Winter’s deep chill. 
For I finally saw the hope I had dreamed of for so many long years. 

Now-
I say prayers and recite meditational quotes that I write daily. 
I fear nothing but the storm that one day I will suffer once again,
but I know in the depths of my soul that I am stronger, wiser and
more grateful than I could have ever imagined in my short life. 
 
The daily meditation I wrote today-

“For I was weak, now I am strong. 
Days of forsaken moments are washed away like 
pebbles along the shore of a reverie. Thank you, 
Lord, for your kindness and love for me. I am forever 
in your debt and will continue on this righteous path.”



Sorry, it's 24 lines, I just couldn't stop writing...thank you
