i mastered the science of making all the worst decisions

i have mastered the science of making all the worst decisions and continuously watched everything invaluable dart beneath the nearest exit sign. but, if i thought of these decisions as regrets, i’d be incinerating everything of worth. so in my dumpster, buried within every worst decision, rests the rarest and most compelling treasure; the freedom to evolve and prosper.

 

[discovering peace in letting go]

i awake to rainbows

i awake to rainbows on my teeth

smiling past all regrets and anguish

which stained an innocent life of purity

letting go of time held in a jar

sealed, for safe keeping and memories

far to gone to call my own

head high, i entertain the air

spilling life into collapsed lungs

floating in a drowning sea

 

how beautiful the earth is

through the eyes of a young soul

honored to call this life i lead my own
