It's been awhile.
Sometimes you just gotta wait
for life to do its thing,
when all the old ways of seeing
yourself are transformed into
what you somehow shape-shifted into
against all odds and prior misconceptions.
You realize what you deeply believed was a lie,
and you're not sure how you came to believe it,
but you no longer care to follow the tattered threads
that only lead to distracting questions
preventing the sheer joy of the moment
to wash over you.
You have to laugh, it's just that funny.
And now when the ruby sunrise
tickles your face awake
and you see your dreams hovering
daring you to follow
not only do you follow
you can't believe just how easy it is
and you find you are so grateful
for your stubborn resolve
to not only never give up
but to believe in yourself anyway.
