Old Friends

I release it all
The guilt of past deeds
The embarrassment of failures
Missed opportunities
Awkward moments no one noticed

Trapped inside
Too long
Be free, old friends
Dissipate into the atmosphere
Catch the solar wind
Travel far from here

My mind is as quiet now
Like the cold vacuum of Space
Cautious confidence slowly emerges
Reborn in fertile soil
Taking hold with stronger roots

Bringing what I learned in Florida to the great state of Illinois as I continue my journey. After almost 30 years in Florida, I decided it was time for a change of scenery. I have always loved speaking about the big issues. My blog posts are a way to express my uninterrupted thoughts of the issue. I love science, math, technology, yet enjoy the challenge of free verse poetry and examining the world critically.
