Reflections of My Heart
Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Now What   ღ KKD ღ
Now What ???

As I rapidly approach
this time that comes each year
I do it with pride
I do it with out fear

I will embrace this day and pray
I have learned from all that have passed
Changes must be made
for a new mold to be cast

Is 59 at where the turning point should be???
Will I instantly be as wise as my years
or just repeat the past
of a few smiles and an ocean of tears????

My friends ??? No it can not be
for there my choices have been the best
A life mate ??? I cant change those
who can not pass life's test.

My trust in God ??? Now how crazy is that
He is the one on which I can depend
My Family ??? Never !!!
They will be in this heart until my end

Me ??? Now here we go...
Am I the fault of my own tears???
What am I to do with me
In my next thirty years???

I like the inner me
Who I am and what I stand for
But it seems its never quite enough
to reach that final score.

So do I change who I am
and the heart that beats within???
Does it take being untrue to self
to finally win in the end???

In my heart of hearts
I know this would be destined to fail
For happiness I would elude
On the sea of bliss I would never sail

So it seems I will spend
the remainder of my years
just being who God created
living in the smiles and learning from my tears
