I am calm;
my heart beats to the hum of the birds
& I sway along with the trees standing steady and tall.
I am angry, enraged;
I will not fight against time
or wrestle with the wind.
When the sun sets, I will welcome the moon
and let the darkness embrace me.
I painted a picture
of dreams and peace,
stood back and jumped into it
and tried to fit into it with ease.
though beautiful as one could hope,
