A New Leaf

June 23, 2010
I know this is a brand new start,
There’s no reason for me to be torn apart,
Yet look where I end up,
Right in between nowhere and somewhere,
Gazing longingly at the days that have gone,
Yet I must realize there will be new days,
Brighter days filled with the sunshine of the future,
Some might even relapse over the old ones,
Triggering feelings of déjà vu,
Like I’ve been here before,
In another life, another time,
Or maybe it was yesterday…
Even so, a new chapter has begun,
So I turn the page and dip the feather in a new vat of oil,
Clueless but excited as to where I’ll end up,
Letting go of the past,
I’ll spread my wings and fly,
Breaking free from the chains of regret.
