Your Destiny

Your Destiny

I want to fill my senses, with the leaves on autumn days

to make time stop, like frozen caps on peaceful, sleeping lakes

to reach the depths within my soul, like the moon touches the shore

Leaving my footprints on the heart like the robin on the snow

Fireworks and campfires raging , feeling the heat of every spark

A speck floating in the water under a blaze of skylit stars

Bathing in the mist of a springtime early morning

A fierce storm swept away, forceful and sweeping without warning

Using every means that my body can acquire

Being everything I am, is all my heart desires

    Gorgeous piece. Well done.

  • You painted such a beautiful picture with your words and the ending was so uplifting!

  • To be content--with who you are, what you have, all that surrounds you--is a wondrous gift.
