A new year. Here’s to new beginnings. A fresh coat of paint. That new car smell. The old gone into the recycle bin. Maybe to become something better one day. Moving into Spring-time. Days of rain to cover the sunshine. Plowing the fields. Planting the seeds. A little more water. And a little more.
Seasons change. As they should. The heat takes over. I stay in the shade a while. How many more miles? Training. Staying in shape. Watching what I eat. Diets are evil. Slurpees are superb. Ice coffee…I’m not sure.
Colors of the Earth found in every leaf. Falling to the ground, by the thousands. Can I count them all? Still feeling the need to grow. Grow more. Though, my time is up. Harvesting what’s done. It’s still not enough. I’m still not…
The long winter’s wait to grow a little more next year. No longer able to cover my tears. Nineteen marks scratched on the wall. Has it actually been this long? Perhaps, I should give up. Proclaim: I quit. Turn in my ring. Renounce my vow. The road too long. The destination too far.
Is it true what He says? Is love really worth it all? It matters to me. Just a little longer.
I can wait.
