Paradise

‘Paradise’

Having  the  time  to  reflect  on  self,

I’ve  come  to  realize  that  what  I  seek  is  within  me.

I’ve  wallowed  in  self  doubt,  and  in  the  process

I’ve  put  creative  dreams  on  hold.

Always  making  excuses  for  what  I  can’t  do  and  why,

And  what  I  don’t  have  time  for.

The  years  have  slipped  away  for  making  dreams  a  reality.

The  years  have  slipped  away,  but  time  allows  for  second  attempts,

For  me  to  make  the  best  of  time  that’s  left.

I  see  so  clearly  now,  and  my  senses  are  alive.

I  feel  revived  as  if  a  new  me  has  been  born.

With  a  new  sense  of  self,  I  will create

What  might  be  the  masterpiece  of  a  lifetime.

A  masterpiece  to  make  me  weep  tears  of  joy

That  I  accomplished  what  I  set  forth  to  do.

I’ve  decided  to  put  fear  aside,  and  make  my  dreams  a  reality.

I  shall  try  once  again  without  reservation.

Having  the  time  to  reflect  on  self,

I’ve  come  to  realize  that  what  I  seek  is  within  me.

It’s  Creativity.

It’s  Happiness.

It’s  Paradise.
