Towards the Sun

picture of vivid sun next to a shadowed tree

Towards the Sun

Sometimes it’s good
to get blinded,
to let your fickle
sight get seared
away,

to let distractions
burn to ash,
let vain lips dry
and chap,
thick skin burn
and fade,

to shed the shadows
you’ve been casting
and let all the past
trail behind, and
saunter solely into
that horizon
like a hero past
his time.

Well, the week’s almost halfway through. Make it through today, and you’re on the downslope, folks. You can do it, I’ve got faith in you. Anywho, the little diddy above is something that I hope you enjoy. It’s one of those things where, sometimes, you just have to realize you need to shed everything and go. You’ve gotta walk right towards that sun, and keep going despite all of your previous obligations and connections. You just need to go and let it all get left in your wake.

It’s often a last decision, but one that can downright save your life. Or your happiness, at the very least.

Special thanks to  jpaulocv for the amazingly vivid image.
