the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 20 – The Next Chapter

Leave a comment

There you have it, love. Another door has closed.
Time has passed quickly, through these here windows

Light, it moves forward and, love, it dances on
So arise from your rest, and sing your own kind song

Keep your eyes open, and please, open your mind
Free your own sorrow, Undo the pain you bind

Close the past few chapters; for you may start anew
Just harvest these fruits (of labor that you grew)

For they are yours to keep, despite the thorns and bruises
Just learn to accept them, but don’t tell me your excuses

See, you have been given life, so I hope you chose to love it
If you meet misery once more, I know you’ll rise above it.
