A Man

The morning sun bathes my long worn skin

Warmth probing without success to reach inside

Looking down at hands far too alien to be my own

I find within me the child losing the fight to survive†††††††††

Winter has come and emotions hit like a blizzard

Feeling the need to hibernate from this cold life

In the dark depths of desolation I fear the coming

Itís too late now though the metamorphosis has begun

The change tries to embraces me yet I still turn from it unsure

Too fast it comes spinning and spinning me in a twilight waltz

Faster and faster I spin till I am coming apart at my seams

Only to slow down reforming as the spinning finally ceases

Now the winter has passed and the world begins a new

Life coming too after much time spent hiding away

So many flowers bloom slowly in the coming months

A sign of hope for all the lost souls trying to find home

The sun again rises its long slumber for now is over

Glorious light shines down upon my new born eyes

Winter and the days before me have now passed

And now the change is overÖ

I have become a man

Author's Notes:

Well this one came to me while I was shopping yesterday for things like washing up liquid and milk, I guess i'm really going through that change right now and I hope to come out a better man.

Thanks to Chelle and Elizabeth for allowing me to be that man in their lifes.

To Jo,Anya,Mom, Aunt Tracy, Yuna, Dayna and everyone else who inspires me with their unique relationship/friendship within our CP Family
