I Am Alive, Again!

the darkness came on easy, i let it

in hope of an easy fix.

surgeon, your hands please heal

broken bones, heal broken spirit.

i want to walk down great pathways

to find sad peasants in the road.

reach out with words that lead to laughter,

that lighten hard and heavy loads.

i am not downtrodden,

hope shines lamplike in the dusk.

striding now toward bright dawn

my pain gone, i live with lust.

send out help, it beams so brightly

in the golden morning sun,

i walk into tomorrow- wait!

i want to Run!!!
