The shadow of pain....
               ... is the beginning of Happiness

I hear the vibration of words cling to my ear.
The shouting whisper claims my attention.
Sending my heart pounding with fear.
Your voice echoes with the words you “forgot” to mention.
I feel the ground around me start to shake
Glass slices through me as the windows shatter.
The walls have fallen. I’m all that is left in its wake,
Leaving my lifeless body like it doesn’t matter.
I hear a faint enchanting voice as I lift my head
Fighting to keep my eyes open as darkness tries to claim them.
When the figure appears I realize I must be dead.
Gracing me with a smile, she hands me a radiant gem.
Gleaming brightly, the light engulfs me.
The serenity it offers is where I yearn to be.

Morning Sunlight (Edited)

Morning Sunlight

Morning sunlight ripples across the river’s surface
A picture perfect moment
That goes unnoticed.
Everyone is in a hurry,
Rushing to work, consuming their coffee
Never taking a second
To claim the beauty
That could be theirs to possess
We take the precious events for granted
Like being able to sit under the sun
Feeling the breeze swiftly passing you.
Not thinking that someday these luxuries may not be available
What if morning came without sun?
Then would we stop and notice,
Take our time to hear the bird’s story
That he sings to us each morning
Instead of hitting the snooze
Open yourself to the world outside
Appreciate what is waiting outside the door.
