Days are growing longer
and I finally discovered my own worst enemy.
The haunting persistency of a mind filled with
thoughts racing over and over again.
Too many times have I tried to find the off switch
and I have learned the undesirable truth.
The thought of wanting nothingness is permanent.
Such hope is filled with a bitter darkness.
In time it is patience that provides peace
and I open my eyes to a surrounding unconditional love.
The truth is choosing to stay takes just as much courage.
An unpredictable future is just as comforting as any sort of promised tomorrow.
