Poetic Justice Creative Writing Contest


New Life

I heard his words in my head,
sounding very far away.
How could he say these words
to me, he must be confused.
I am not dying, I am not done.

His words did not hold my life
hostage, I did not curse my God.
I was given a new life that filled
my soul with compassion. My
courage held by the hand of God.

Love flowed into my life leaving
me full, knowing I would never
be alone on this constant journey.
I will learn the secrets of life,
I had always taken for granted.

I am not afraid of dying, but of not
seeking all that life has to offer. I
will not feel cheated when my time
is done. A new life I have been given,
a life that has just begun.

... and, beauty, not done. I know what they say and by what they define us. But - No Way. You keep your faith and you are in this new life.
