I carry a lot in my heart, and at times it becomes more than my soul can bear,
there are times when the amount fills all of my being and there is no room to spare

with these thoughts and emotions I find I need to share

I ask myself how I can change things in my life to find happiness, joy and pleasure, but yet I can find no answers within my mind. For all that has made me happy in the past is gone. And there seems to be nothing in the future to change this. So today I will think of today and work on changing that.

Upon wings transparent
drifting forward
Learning
giving
receiving
sharing

Upon Wings transparent
take me not to yesterday
but towards the light of tomorrow

Upon wings transparent
soaring towards
the unknown
the uncertain
happiness
joy?

it feels so good
worn and abused muscles scream in sweet release

relaxing into nothing nothingness
