The Awakening

Life is bleak;
it is grim.
Too hard to live,
too hard to die.
Pain is all around
the glass half-empty
not half-full.
These things I've thought
and no surprise
that in my sadly jaded eyes
only gloom resides.



the awakening:

For once
I began to see
through eyes not melancholy
but absurd
that life is funny;
it is full;
it is rich
and never dull.
Though the unforeseen
may test me still
I can smile and feel
the peace of God
that soothes and comforts
every ill.

The calmness now
within my heart
rules every dire calamity
and sees
all darkness and despair-
a time ahead
so bright and fair.
