Start of Days

Closes her eyes,
sleepwalks through life,
exhaling tales born yesterday.
Thoughts gallop high,
jump over strife,
setting high sails to patch pathways.

An endless loop,
of circling doubts,
inhale lost dreams from brighter days.
Swallow bright scoops,
until light sprouts,
tempt inner love to come and play.

Savor the taste,
of times gone stale,
tomorrow starts as of today.
Smile glistens face,
break from their jail,
emotions race without delays.

No longer frail,
strength stands in place,
self confidence is swiftly raised.
Race to prevail,
wipe sweat from face,
conquer to form positive days.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
