The joy within
I have climbed the many peaks
of the mountains of my heart,
at times it has felt,
as if my soul was ripped apart.
I have walked on dusty roads
and gazed up at starry nights,
I have prayed at broken windmills,
and waited for dawn’s golden light.
And what the world has taught me
when the days are dark and grim,
is to look outside in awe and wonder
to rediscover the light within.
