“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise we harden.” Goethe

Dancing Days Will Come

Today I cannot
remain in the subtle mask
that has adopted an
acceptable contentment that
that covers a multitude of
juiceless moments,
an angst in a cloud of 
unknowing, but today I am
knowing the haze in which
I dwell is ever bound in
the imprint of every breath,
yet, like a moth to a flame,
I am drawn continually to
the inviting shimmer of light
on my horizon that is shouting
depression days are over,
dancing days will flourish
deep within the well of my soul.
