Fresh Start



It hurts so
To leave this life behind
But I can't ever know what I don't see
Until I see it.
I love the beaten footpath of my past life
The ease and security.
But I long and urge for the journey
To where we exponentiate
To where we are one.
I am no lone soldier
Raised by the leaders and from the bottom of the barrel
One of millions
That was strong enough.
To live
To thrive
To differentiate
To keep growing.
I know you and you know me
Let's be
The best that we can be.

About this poem

Written in one of the most integral times for a family. All heart and soul. I wish we heard everybody the way writers hear writers in a time of magnitude.
