shadow-1009997_1280Be brave.

You will find your way using long strides.

You will fill your cracks with gold.

Swallow darkness like lemonade

and savor its twisted flavor.

Scramble into the unknown.

You can’t help but smile.

Your heart will beat

its fractured tune and one

speck of dust will fall from

your tattered suitcase of regrets.

You are broken like the old

clock in the corner of the

home you used to love.

But that’s okay.

You will cartwheel down the sidewalk

leading away from the city.

And you will smile.
