The poem(s) are below...



Jealousy engulfed me. Competition broke me. Sadness, guilt strangled me. Acknowledging the wrong, changing for the better. Making that 180. Then... relief! Forgiveness and letting go. Peace. Linear existence. Letting the past be the past. The present the present. And walking arms opened into the future. Trying not to make the same mistake. Taking one step, day by day. Giving and feeling love. Connecting and reaches all corners of the Earth. Being more than one.
