On my drive home today,
I heard the radio say
“Today is where your book begins;
the rest is still unwritten”.
I felt that in my soul.
Today was not just a new chapter
in my never-ending story.
I realized it is a new book
in a “can’t put it down” thrilling series.
So what if the last book took a
depressing turn into hopelessness?
Every main character needs a backstory
that makes your root for them.
Besides, I have a strong feeling
that this new book I’m living
is about to be a best-seller
with hopefully a happy ending.
Lately there have been so many changes happening in my life.
It’s like I’m walking in the ocean, ankle deep to avoid the undertow.
The never ceasing waves try to grasp me and pull me in.
I tried to play it safe, and stay shallow with my feet on the ground
but something greater than me has other plans.
I realized trying to resist the riptide of the things I can’t control
as the changes kept coming and coming was terrifying.
But suddenly in clarity I remembered I know how to swim.
And I’m damn good at it too. Bring it on life.
I’m fucking ready for this new adventure.
Is there any better feeling
than the excitement that comes
along with new possibilities?
Is there any better taste
that the hope on your lips
as you speak dreams into existence?
Is there any better sight
that the visions you have
become reality in front of you?
Is there any better sound
then a friendly welcome
as you finally find your way home?
The sky is a vibrant blue.
The sun is shining full force
and glints on a shallow stream.
Going 55 miles per hour
I race down this curving road
on my way to chase a new dream.
