My vision drowned as the water cascaded through my eyes.
Never could my heart fill with a reality of the wise.
My thoughts were consumed with the breaking of my heart.
Through my whimpering I could not hear that tomorrows story is a new start.
The flash of new beginnings bolted through my mind.
Yet the pain in my heart consumed me with an anger that wasn’t kind.
Sinking slowly into a pit of dissolution and despair.
The realization catapulted me into a world full of love and care.
My self pity and woe were relentless as I began to fight.
I decided to persevere, for I would stand tall once more on this star filled night.
The stars began to twinkle and glisten becoming the gems that I deserved.
For the new beginning of life that I have once more earned.
