A Poets Desire

by Karen Simpson   Sep 14, 2006

Pushing through the weeds of a tormented heart
A break my stance again and slowly fall apart
Gathering myself and looking to the light
A pray for inner strength and a will to fight

Unraveling my many overdue trials of life
Wiping the slate clean from all of my past strife
Today, a dawn, the beginning of change
My options open up and continue to range

Shaking off so many burdensome weights
Priorities and issues I begin to get straight
So long have I put aside my own desires
My strength has fallen and my heart tires

Now I turn and face the oncoming storm
A challenge I long, although Ive been warned
Today a new light shines; a glare I can not resist
Much of my life was wasted; This one wont be missed
