LOSING LIGHT AND FOCUS

 

At the end of the day and
in the evening of my life —

losing light and focus – i must re-train myself
to see and to do whatever is left to do —

at the cusp of the seasons – when changes do come –
when the dunamis inside of us does fill up our lungs,

the power to change us coming
not from us but through us – as our children do.

I am not the source of my own life, and
as light fails and night falls, I must

finish becoming who I am.
