Find Joy

Swallow the lump
stuck in my throat,
another bump
along the road.

Hold back the tears
behind my eyes,
ignore the fears
hidden inside.

Blink thoughts away
exhale a sigh,
feelings display,
silently cry.

Let it all out
with a loud scream,
my sad heart shouts,
“Control this dream.”

An instant peace
makes me feel calm,
flow with the breeze,
sway like a palm.

Wishes today
form tomorrow,
so joys can stay
and clear sorrows.
