24 x 36 inches
somewhere in the past,
there are people who have seen,
all the challenges that I have left,
to live a life of meaning.
brushstrokes guide my hands,
a tight embrace wrapped around my soul,
this moment in my life that feels so cold,
I find warmth in those who walked this road.
we all find inspiration in a flower,
a delightful smelling rose,
her pricks and thorns protect her,
while her fragrance draws us close.
