A New Day

This moment begins a new day.
I have unlimited ways to excel.
Endless possibilities lie in front of me.

I ponder the depths of my pain.
I am in a dark pool of regrets.
Its water needs the renewal of love.

Crushing words had been spoken.
I start a sullen silence.
It spares me from the pain.
I want to say, “I am worthy.”

Then my prayers find answers.
I’m able to let the past go.
The torments are fading away.
This new day might surprise me.
