Rising River

December 7, 2008

Too many thoughts to process
Since I destroyed the dam
That held so many secrets
Behind the impenetrable concrete

Too many unfelt feelings
As I experience life anew
Large, harsh, raging
With newly open eyes
With a freshly open heart

So much to live for
And so many reasons to die
River of new tears
Flowing over the flooded valley
Rising from my soul

Too many lives touched
Too many who truly care
For me to give up
For me to end it all

So, for today
For this moment
I’ll let the tears fall
And cling to lost hopes
Newly found
In the rising river
Of too many thoughts
