Right Now

Every old step, led to today,
while skies were painted shades of gray.
All hopes got lost , hearts filled with pain,
lost every dream, tears fell like rain.

Every old step, led to today,
even while life was not okay.
No words or actions could explain,
how all was lost with nothing gained.

Every old step, led to today,
faith came around, as sadness prayed.
Logic played ping pong with the brain,
pumping warm light through thirsty veins.

Every old step, led to today,
with no regrets holding down weight.
Letting things go, breaking the chains,
so joys are easily attained.

Every old step, led to today,
each lesson learned creates a sway.
Passion comes crashing like a train,
allowing growth to be obtained.

Every old step, led to today,
experiences pave better ways,
making the best of every strain,
saving bright hearts from worn dull stains.
