Fall poem

October 20, 2022   ·   0 Comments

I am shedding like a snake
It is time for a change
I look forward to the same 
gasp of excitement
in my own way 
But change is challenging
How can I take my moment 
of reconciliation 
when everything could be chaos
within me or my world 
spinning opposite to what is expected?
I drudge accordingly 
trying so hastingly
to evolve to my new outer skin 
I feel that I am often judged 
on my outer self
But the change that I love 
and anticipate 
is the renewal of my spirit
To be better and to be wiser
But as I leave the shed skin behind
I know 
that letting go of the past 
is as real as my newer self  
I am rejuvenated
I am hopeful 
I am content 
This is the time to let go and embrace
the metamorphosis
of my being.
