I just have these three words to aid me- Grief like Sunset. Let me see where it leads me.
Like this path I stumbled up on and chose to explore throwing caution to the wind.
Like every other story of mine.
Avoiding the synchronicity that comes with the monotone of life.
Holding my head up high to salute the sun in his eye
When really, I am as short as the stump of a bush people piss on,
Cut down a while back.
I jump across the puddles and with slight vexation avoid the ‘Danger-Flood!’ signs
Because it is oceans I have to swim in my life and valleys I have to leap over
And my tiny misshapen legs ought to have the might that they show.
If I have to live to have another bleak chance at a most beautiful day
That may elude and escape through all the misery and mockery present otherwise,
In this little harangue called my life.
Where rejections and declines may rule the pages of my book
But the pen to end my griefs as beautiful as the sunset
Is still being wielded by my proud little hands.
