Shahla Latifi

A New Beginning



 As I am looking

Into my dreamy depth with love,

I see the dim light of hope


In the darkest of my being

With my eyes wide open 

And with a sense of a new beginning,

I feel free



The excitement of my soul

Expedites the rush of new life into me


My heart widens

With acceptance of happiness

And the breaths of fresh days

Swirl softly around me
