I’ve been walking my whole life up this trail.
After a lifetime,
I finally see a clear path.
After all the challenges life has given me.
After walking through all those obstacles of fallen branches and prickly shrubs.
Soon the dark clouds part and the bright sun bursts through.
I’ve missed the sun.
It hasn’t been in my life in a long time.
It’s been raining for a while instead.
But now it’s back.
I smile as I take in the rays.
Sooner then I hoped for,
I’m near the cliff.
I knew I had to end here my whole life,
but the sun is out.
I want to stay here forever.
life has it’s way and brings me to the edge of the cliff.
I look down below,
careful not to fall,
and see a beautiful lake swimming with love and happiness.
I know it is my time.
I look out towards the horizon to see my house one last time.
I take a deep breath and jump for it.
