New Life, New Day

56 pages25 minutes


Before the New Life

reaching backwards towards the past -

you must end one chapter
before you can begin the next

the butterfly must shed the caterpillar’s skin
before it can fly

the sun must set
before it can rise again

the night must end
before the day begins

the fear must leave
before potential can enter

the seed must grow
before the blooms appear

you must leave the past behind
before you can embrace the future

& I, like the sunshine, must move on
take a step forwards
before the new life can begin

New Life, New Day is a collection of 35 poems about celebrating life & the possibilities each day holds.
