    Sitting here reflecting


    I am severely conflicted


    Pulled by tommorrow's promise


    And grasping for yesterday's comfort


    I want to step out and walk out in faith


    Trusting and believing that all will be well


    But I am seduced by the contentment of today


    The present is not perfect by no form or fashion


    But better to deal with the devil you already know


    Then to jump from the fire to a new hotter frying pan


    Who am I to think that i can handle the new challenge


    But who I am I am not face the change on the horizion


    It seems that I am damned if I do and damned if I don't


    So I journey into every tommorrow ready for transformation


    For with every sunrise there is brand new opportunity to evolve


    And from this moment forth I voved to be a better me than yesterday

    Reflection is always a good thing, transformation is even
    better, but when you excel to a place of contentment....with yourself.

    Then life is good.

    Great flow Simplepoet.:toast:

    Experience breeds knowledge...Knowledge breeds understanding...Understanding breeds wisdom...And wisdom knows the futility of ignorance

    Oh, ASP!

    If you're not already, you really should be published and sharing your heart and words with the world!

    THIS is your GIFT, your TESTIMONY, your MINISTRY!

    Whenever I read you, I am always uplifted! You make me reflect and shore myself up with renewed faith!

    Thank you for this!
