Starting a new life, part 3, arrival (poem)

This is part 3 of 3, part 1, the preparation, and part 2, the journey, are in the previous blogs

A new life found

Starting a new life, part 3, the arrival

I have arrived at a beginning, a new life to start,
A new world to explore that, from my past stands far apart.
On the edge of this new life, I can feel both hope and fear,
How will this new life treat me? Can I let this unknown near?
The sun has risen upon me, giving a clearer view,
It’s time to stop this hesitating, time to trust the new.

There is a place here for me, and off to there I shall go,
Then once I’ve unpacked my bits, this life I will get to know.
New people for me to meet, new places for me to see,
For a while I’ll just drift around, peacefully and carefree.
Then comes the challenge, to build a life where I will fit in,
So let’s find what I can do, and where my kindness can win.

Happiness is a moment away, inside us it sits,
It follows on from kindness, in its silhouette it fits.
Giving a part of myself, sharing myself where there’s need,
Will bring new life to me, growing in my heart as a seed.
Knowing that I make a difference, is my life’s new start,
But wherever you look, somewhere in life you play a part

Starting a new life, part 2, the journey (poem)

This is part 2 of 3, part 1, the preparation, and part 3, the arrival, are in adjacent blogs

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.
