My Original Photography
As I awoke this morning, I was thinking about the day ahead.
Being thankful to be alive. Welcoming the daylight.
I have days I have to take a walk to hold back tears.
Other times I feel I could rule the world.
I find myself listening to others who struggle.
Retreating back into my own life,
grateful to realize some of my choices were made well.
I find some days I could go without being "outwardly friendly".
but then I find myself missing that part of me.
Some days I can feel my heartbeat in my hands.
Slowing down in the evening after a full day, just writing.
I always knew I loved words and letters.
For awhile now, they have become like friends.
Gathering together, and becoming something meaningful.
Other days, I just think -- Of family who came before me.
How alike I am to those I wish I had the chance to meet.
I think of the talks we could have had, what I could have learned.
I look forward to meeting them, One Day.
Yet, Other days I wonder where I will be in a few years time.
Where I will be living, the experiences I will have.
Time spent with my family and friends, creating new memories.
The people I will meet. The job I will arrive at each day.
The new photographs that will be taken,
and new blog posts that will be written.
I hope I am fortunate enough to live to be older, to experience
more and take in much of the beauty that has yet to be seen.
