Echo Lake, Splash
I run through the water.
Today, I am full of joy.
I remember so many challenges.

I will be dripping wet.
The chilling air is not a problem.
How do I wander from joy to anger?
Then, must I journey from anger to isolation?

I have friends that I trust.
When I see them smile, I laugh along.
We have shared our secret thoughts.
We can find humor in the mundane.
I smile as our jokes cross my mind again.

Today I can remember the hard times.
I am not stuck there anymore.

I continue forward with a splash of love.

  1. Have you ever considered creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?

    I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss and would love
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would appreciate
    your work. If you’re even remotely interested, feel free
    to send me an email.
