    Endless Possibilities

    I thought I’d forget all my troubles;
    hiking the high hills today –
    but my thoughts betrayed me again –
    turning my hopes to bitterness
    until a soft voice interrupts
    my internal monologue:

    “Make your life a celebration,
    not cause for regret.
    Set a goal, a purpose, a direction
    then enter every situation
    with eyes wide open.
    See your endless blessings;
    the knowledge life has granted you:
    put these to better use.

    They will show you the beauty
    of a cascading mountain stream
    with a backdrop of jagged peaks
    above scraggly pines at the tree line
    just below the sun’s slanting rays.

    They will give you a sprinkling of fresh snow;
    the feel of a shiver as a late autumn breeze
    finds an opening in your collar.

    Is this not the dawning of a new day
    filled with endless possibilities?
    Why should you allow yesterday's thoughts
    to mar today's joy?
    If you came here to find happiness
    just for one day, that is all you will get
    but if you discover self-empowerment
    such happiness you will find
    absolutely everywhere.”
