Life on the move
Starting a new life, part 2, the journey
This journey towards a new life, is more than just a place,
If I want a new life, it’s my emotions I must face.
They are the greater challenge, to become better within,
And releasing all my anger, is where I shall begin.
I will not take it with me, as I travel round each bend,
I will find my peace, before this journey comes to an end.
I shall discard the bad memories, make space for the new,
Find the beauty in this world, enjoy all thats comes in view.
When I cross a bridge, I will toss my prejudices away,
I will pick up understanding, as I walk through this day.
If I meet a stranger, could I turn them into a friend?
There’s so much to learn, before this journey comes to an end.
I will let my hope set sail, let it seek the good in life,
Collect the strength to carry on, to cope with all my strife.
To seek a kinder world, a better life for me to live,
So much has life to offer, and so much have I to give.
I will seek a place to share my love, where my wounds can mend,
It’s coming into view, as this journey comes to an end.
