Sun On My Face

No longer a sharp scoff
Or a harsh boundary
Revealing the blackness
Sunlight is now an ocean
Cleansing my jungle rot

Is this the high road? Maybe just the long road.... said...

this is very poignant! almost alarming. There's a lot of darkness even in the sunshine. Nice to see someone sees both. (other than me)

In this poem and the one preceding I see the same tendency to accept the positive (the sunlight, the smile) more willingly and graciously into your life.

Darkness and light are always clashing in our lives, and its difficult to learn to accept one mroe frequently more than the other. But it definitly is a learning experiance that I am working through. Thank you both for the kind comments.
