There's a light where darkness lingered
In tunnels stretching far too long.
When one's thoughts alone are tinkered
One sees the moon is just as strong.

There is happiness in the small,
The quite gestures of each day:
The final leaf to bloom and fall
Or feelings which words can't convey.

Yes - we choose how we see each day,
Though, we can't control what's beyond.
The words for which we hold or say
Ultimately to us belong.

In this - I want to be better
Im kind, but sometimes my words cut
Continue this open letter
Of growth, and slam whats toxic shut.

Be better for the ones I love
For the God I once lost faith in.
For self too, and i pray above
To stay grounded when my mind spins.

Understanding no one's perfect.
We make mistakes, we slip, we fall.
Sometimes in search for the secret
We ignore our own higher call.

But - to learn from our own mistakes
Be they life's lessons: large or small:
Those moments when the tower shakes
Can be life's greatest gift of all.

  • L. B. Mek

    (our humanity's, Light
    bravely unfurled
    for this traits, are what
    allow us, to hope
    in the face of the most
    bleakest of fates...)
    just so vulnerable and powerful
    a great read, dear Poet
    thank you!

    I wish I could hug her and tell her how much I love her.
