What Future Lies

Death has a heart,
it taunts the horizon
towards my next goal;
A wish list of dreams
and all the dark nights
turned light
I fight through
to breach the edge.

Reality
can be a cruel mistress
and nobody knows for sure
what future lies…
what future lies
will get in our way
or not.

All I’ve ever wanted for me was
peace.
Peace-
not an easy way out,
but acceptance of the way
and stillness within it.

I still fight myself
and cry myself to sleep,
but have learned to start all over again
with each new dawn,
hopeful;

and I write.
I write because it is my peace
and Death has a Heart
will be my victory
over grief.
