A Poem

I Don’t Know What Anything is For

I don’t know what anything is for,

many events have come a calling at my door.

I used to contemplate them with fear and dismay,

but over the years I’ve come to realize those experiences made me a better person today.

Change was required,

tears often flowed,

but somehow, I knew it would pass and off I’d go.

Im not alone in this as I once thought to be,

because I have many friends around me.

Life goes on and so do I,

living, loving, learning without the urge to cry.

I choose Life.

I choose Joy.

I don’t know what anything is for but one thing is for sure,

a different me has walked through that door.

I end this poem on a solid note.

Life is too precious to throw myself into a dark dreary moat.

I look towards the bright blue sky,

astride my horse, reins in hand and a huge smile.

Writing is my source of peace. I write short stories: memoirs, fiction, and on matters of the soul.

Writing could have been a career for me but I let it slip away. It’s never too late to start again. I hope you enjoy what you read here.
