The Fog Has Lifted

The fog has lifted
The weight is gone
Lightness has returned
Singing is in me
Humor also
Light again
And I do not know why-

I do not know why
A natural cycle? Up and Down and Up Again?
Chemistry?
A lost in a cemetery nightmare
That expressed and so eliminated my fears?
A good night's sleep afterwards?
A surprisingly pleasant social evening?
Being out of the shell and out of the house?

I don't know why
Yesterday I was only a failure
And a life story that was to be regretted
Today I am simply alright

I don't know why
But I write now easily and happily

How long will it last
I don't know.

Because it is like that....you will write till destiny drives you--we are controlled somehow by Holy Moses..
