This is my life

as I stand here
on the threshold of
something new
life has come to a pause;

everything has just
been temporarily
put on hold or
slowed down to a crawl;

emotions,
thoughts,
desires,
and dreams;

like a kid stepping into a school
after the holidays
everything seems brand new
while its all the same;

nothing has changed
nothing seems out of order
yet everything seems so out of sync
like a lion out of captivity and into the forest;

time will set right everything,
time will show the mirages
when the dust has settled,
And only time will answer
where this journey will take me;
until then, I am as clueless as you are
about this beautiful thing
called “life”, my sweet little life;
