Affirmation: A Short Poem

Today I am going to start a new path–

I’m flawed and failing and full of scars

but I will not allow those to define me again,

not on this new day.

I have spent months in hell,

and weeks in torments,

and minutes in doubt,

and seconds in terror…

No more today.

Today I will spend seconds breathing

and valuing breath for those who cannot;

I will spend minutes being thankful in my soul

for health for at least one more day–for those who are suffering;

I will spend my the hours seeking to have purpose and serve

for those who rely on me to do so…

And I will spend the day honoring life; for those who have been lost.
