In Search of Better Days

Among the horizon of city lights
I gaze out and feel a smile form on my face.
The comfort of lights is my substitute for the lack of a salty ocean breeze.

Discovering peace outside of myself,
I’ve learned to appreciate my surroundings.
There is discoverable gratitude in the world.

No longer are the days filled with grey sky bitterness
Even in the snowy days there exists peace in the cold.
Sometimes it is a matter of realizing it’s about perspective.

How we view unfortunate weather may reveal a lot
about the genuine insight of who we are.
To appreciate a thunderstorm is to see the sunshine of hope for better days.
