But, I Live

I live scared.   But, I live.

I blink and so lose fractions of vision.  Yet, I see.

I hold my breath.  And still, I require fresh air.

I am loud.  Oh but how I yearn for my silence.

I can’t believe it!  Oh, though!  I am a believer!

I age.   But there is no doubt  I feel the excitement of youth.

I inquire.  Though some answers I can give.

I smile.  Even when I cry.

I anger.  Though joy rules my life.

I shake my head in disbelief.  Nevertheless, I am in awe and live in the wonder of acceptance.

Still me.

Different sides of the same mirror.

    I love this, especially, “I blink and so lose fractions of vision. Yet, I see.”
    All facets of living are real and reading this I’ve realised that aging has left me less scared not more. Imagine that?
    I get your posts on FB each morning here in Ireland. They are like my ‘thought for today.’

    I love your words here. It’s all part of life, the highs and the lows. And the negatives certainly don’t define us! Keep on spreading your positive, Colleen 🙂

    We are complex, aren’t we? On any given day I can be all of these and more. It might explain my fatigue! 🙂
