Poem: finding my place

By: Linda M Crate

myplace

just want to close my eyes
open them
let the sun swallow me in the gold
of kindness and love
remember
me all the compassion the world wants
forgotten,
and to embark on dreams i didn’t realize
were there but are;
autumn is falling into winter,
but she still shines on
with a somber
smile
encouraging me to race toward my
dreams and hopes and aspirations—
one day things won’t
be this way,
and one day i will be happier than ever when
i leave this place far behind me;
shining bright
as the sun as i find my place in this vast
world.
