Thoughts on joy

Hi, friends.

I’d hoped to offer something more along the lines of an essay, but instead this spilled forth.  It is a heartfelt attempt to articulate my state of being at this moment.

This is Bliss

I live in the midst of relentless joy
Which shows no sign of abating
Only deepening with each new day.
Beyond contentment, this is bliss.

Peace crept in;
A softly spoken stranger
Now my constant companion.
At last, at long last, I am free.

I had been encumbered
By chains I’d made for myself
Walking in forbidden places,
Thinking thoughts reserved
For the darkest of moments.

Now, all that slips away,
I flex my wings and test.
Yes, they will hold.
And this will remain

Thank you for following along with me through this journey.
