daybreak

Everybody makes mistakes. Forgive yourself.

—-

anguish

the dark behemoth that triumphs over

this murky mountainous mess

composed of all your wrong decisions.

 

you look behind you

but you can longer see the path

that led you here today

you can only move forward.

 

he bares his crimsom fangs

soaked in the blood of your past forsaken dreams

but there is no time to mourn

as he approaches

ready to strike again.

 

you whisper a soft prayer

but know that no one will come to your aid

and so you prepare for the impact

with your arms wide and legs rooted

you wait for his charge

straight into your embrace.

 

fighting was never the answer

and so you chose to forgive

you hold firm

as he sobs meekly in your arms

as you both grieve

for everything that could’ve been

should’ve been

and never will be.

 

as dawn approaches

he fades away

nothing more but a shadow once again

and before you

lies a boulevard that infinitely diverges

and no matter what you decide is the right direction

you know that hope will light the way.
