Life

Towards the sunset

June 18, 2009

A New Light

there was nothing in sight
running away from the carnage
the memories left abandoned
all gone in a blink of the eye;

sometimes beginnings are’nt so simple
sometimes goodbye’s the only way
i did not realize everything was falling apart, until
everyone i knew was ready to turn and run away;

i wish i could say
that i’ve got no regrets.
looking for the right words to say,
i’m not quite sure how to put my words,
as a solitary tear drop slid down my cheek,
i packed my bags and took a train towards
the sunset where a new life awaits and
tomorrow i’ll  forget about my grief today;

The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are. – Author Unknown

So many fail because they don’t get started – they don’t go. They don’t overcome inertia. They don’t begin. – W. Clement Stone

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. – T.S. Eliot

Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance. – Oprah Winfrey
