Day Seven: Leaving

rest.
in the womb there was nothing
to touch you, no light to show you
the darkness
opening your eyes to the world you
saw the brightness
and never again would there be
rest.

love and hatred.
growing up,
it was a deep temptation to fall
stars around you, letting you plunge
spiraling down to the beckoning
demons, dark specters
calling your name with
love and hatred.

letting go.
in those final moments
release the tears
for forgotten promises and deceptions
and see the brightening end.
the young has yet to cross the tunnel,
who stands and sees death twine
hands with you. smile
and you’re letting go….

***

Never forget to smile.
