Sunflowers

final sunflower

Epiphanies can be time consuming

But they can also be great
You come across a thought
And it’s become a lifted weight***
***
***

But have to train your brain

On what to expect

I’ve tried for months

To get some good respect

***

***

***

I needed to live for me

To say, “Let it all go!”

And just live for me

But the process was slow

***

***

***

But I couldn’t do it at first

And I didn’t know why

Nor did I know how

How do you wave goodbye?

***

***

***

Then the switch flipped

The bell went ding!

FINALLY in my head

Was a song I could sing

***

***

***

I watched the game

I played the game

I wrote a bit

I know it sounds lame

***

***

***

But then I called someone dear to me

I sat alone for my thoughts to center

I dug deep into the corners of my mind

Places where I never dare enter

***

***

***

I gathered them like fall leaves

Raked them up in a pile

For me to play and jump in

And lay around for awhile

***

***

***

Now bathing in the sea of happy

I’m living in the world of manifest

But to honestly tell you the truth

Focusing on me is the hardest test

***

***

***
But once I focus, I feel warm inside

The numbness has finally left my side

Only thoughts that make me smile

It surely has been a long while

 ***
***
***

And all of the negative

Are being pulled out like weeds

As I Look around 

For other sunflowers like me

***

***

***

But as you may know

All flowers of any kind

ARE WELCOME!

***
