A Change in Thinking


I'm alive and finally clear
About the reason I am here.
It was something that I longed for through the years.

Many times I wondered why
That at night sometimes I'd cry.
It was cleansing out my body through my tears.

I was happy with my life
As a mother and a wife.
But, still was living with the same old fears.

I knew something was missing.
My brain kept on insisting
To change my perception of how the world appears.

And then I started healing
And changed how I was feeling.
It opened all the doors to new frontiers.

I'm feeling so at peace now
In finding out that somehow
That tolerance for all is what endears.
