Sunset

Have you ever noticed, how the day folds in on itself?

The trees in the forest are the same and yet look different.

At dawn and at twilight when the light of the setting sun,

No matter how beautiful, no matter how strong,

Misses a glow that shines through when it is rising?

 

My days are like that now, my life folds upon itself.

The expectations of youth have given way to acceptance

And where I would receive I now wish to give

For it is not my time any more, those days are done.

It is now yours. In the soft glow of the rising sun.

  3. There are a certain intensity and passion in this flow of words, making it real and down to earth at the same time. Acceptance helps us to inch closer to our identity. Totally love the words.
