New Horizons

Updated on June 20, 2009

A new sun arose on my world

shining light into my soul

My heart so hard, softens now

new hope, new life flows

through my veins

Where blackness reigned

new flowers bloom

on the landscape

of my mind

New horizons shine ahead

Futures yet unseen

Before I may have looked with dread

Now my sight is keen

No one can tell where this journey goes

Or when or how it ends

The step is taken, don’t look back

Backward is the trip and stumble

Only forward paths bring happiness

The past is gone

The future reigns

New sunshine in my soul

      The only way to see new horizons is to keep your head up. Very elegantly portrayed. :)
