Glowing Light

Shahla Latifi

Now that I am living alone,
Independent, strong
I could do anything that makes sense
Or even the things that are shallow,
The things that give me a feeling of fulfillment;
Like dancing with myself in harmony with my own
Sometimes, talking up loud with the steady, quiet doors and walls.
Now that I am alone at night,
Under the roof of my imagination
I could do anything,
With only my thoughts
Next to the glowing light of my alarm clock.
Now that I am alone, 
Profound thoughts,
Happy childhood memories
The conversation I had with my son the day before rejuvenate my mind.
Now that I am alone,
My heart is filled
With the admission of guilt and mistakes
That carried me through light and dark In more ways than one.

    'The things that give me a feeling of fulfilment;
    Like dancing with myself in harmony with my own'
    (wonderfully empowering words
    dear poet, thanks for sharing
    may I recommend you check out
    the song 'Private Party'
    by the wise India Arie
    from where this chorus lines
    I borrowed:)
    ''I'm having a private party
    Ain't nobody here but me, my angels, and my guitar, singin'
    "Baby, look how far we've come, yeah"
    I'm havin' a private party
    Learning how to love me
    Celebrating the woman I've become, yeah''
