    I went through Valley's of despair
    I clilmbed up Mountains of indecision
    I swam through rivers of contention
    And down roads of dissension.
    I sat in a tree that saw forever.
    I drank from a brook that tasted of
    my souls surrnder.
    I lay on leaves of precious tender
    And carried a bag of burdens and
    left each one of them at my roadside
    of rest.
    My heartbreak I left at the hill of regrets.
    My lost dreams I left at the river of forgetfulness
    My wasted time I hung on the tree of forever
    As I grew tired and lay on the leaves of precious
    tender, I heard footsteps that I had never noticed
    on this journey...
    I swallowed gulps of air filled with indignation.
    Looked up and saw my past slowly fading into
    nothingness...
    I clutched my heart and felt a new beat, wiped
    a tear and got back on my feet.
    And at the end of my journey I found my piece/peace!
    Waiting on a platter of gold, surrounded by all of the
    promises that tommorrow holds.

    Any time you want to print my work just ask!

    Girl you know you can print long as you got's my name in plain sight! But thank you so much for the compliment. Glad to be of service, people have long used poetry and inspirational writing
    to relieve their stress and improve their attitude.

    Blessings On Ya House!:D
