How much joy can be found

in the smells of the air

the forest at dawn

the ocean at dusk

pine from the fire

from a house being built

didn’t you forget for a moment

all your worries?

A Chance

Every place

I am able to venture to alone

is a chance

to find you with me

have you show me something.

The fear of sadness, of silence

do not end up being found;

Instead I feel stronger



and I hear more

of your true sound


I continue to learn

that the more you step out

the less scary

the world really is;

with faith that your reality

can change.
