A LESSON LEARNED
I cried today for another’s joy…
I felt no shame as I wept,
A release of emotion that cleansed my soul
Of the petty bitterness I’d kept.
To feel the tears of happiness
As a lost love found it’s home
A stray returned to their rightful place
No longer to suffer
And exist alone.
A lesson learned from hardship endured
With a dignity beyond my understanding
Has shown me not to hide my heart
Nor seek a path less demanding
To reach beyond ones grasp lies heaven
A state fulfilled by chances taken
“Faint heart never won fair maid”.
My inner strength I must awaken
To seek for more than I did before
Not to accept others values and treat them as my own,
To realise my own importance
To reap the rewards my deeds have sown.
