View Full Version : Breakaway

this is new. . . enjoy


The wrappings fall away and float to the ground
Peace of mind I have finally found
Where confusion once lived, serenity now dwells
Awakened am I from a numbing spell
Living now like every breath's my last
Freed am I of my darkned past
"This lady wore black," some will say
The light in my eyes shines like a brand new day
Everything before is a distant whisper
This sudden clarity still makes me shiver
These broken wings are now whole
Healed are the fractures that once marred my soul
Broken away from the shackles of pain
I am now cleansed in gentle rain
Refreshed entirely with a brand new spirit
This is my story- I'm happy to sing it!
Tears that once fell have ceased to flow
My path is bathed in a heavenly glow
A silver shadow behind me is cast. . .
Thank you, Lord- I am free at last

Precious... that's excellent. I get so many visuals reading your prose (i hate to consider anything poetry unless specifically named that by its author...it's all a train of thought anyway, isn't it?)...

It seems like it's truly a new day for you... a beautiful day full of warmth and light
