There’s a tranquility that pervades my soul this morning,

An in-depth stillness that convinces me

That soon with the passage of time,

These dark clouds which hang so threateningly

Over every area of my life

Shall give way to the dazzling brilliance of the Sun

Like at the height of a tropical summer.

There is a positive illumination

That the breaking of this dawn ignites

In the innermost confines of my being;

A revelation that the wonders that lie just beneath this covering

Of skin that time and seasons have bruised so mercilessly,

Are such that no stormy clouds can affect, erase, or decrease.

And so equipped I rise this morning,

Confident that this day shall with the exertion of some effort,

And a deeply embedded determination to succeed,

Yield its gifts unto me…
