A New Beginning

“A New Beginning” jcr

Back in the black.
Back to the days of tomorrow
And me…
Glad to see
Glory Be!
Bodies sway to and fro,
People come,
Then go…
The loud ones–
Old trying to be:
Some acting the other…
Many in between.
Back to black again…
Is tomorrow yesterday?
Beauty seen then: Is not as today.
Eyes different…
Sight closed somehow…
Or opened now?
Back to the basics.
Red, black, seen, unseen…
Through all these…
New fallen snow.
Time to come clean, to what time should have been…
Fix the tire blown.
See the beauty…brought from what is; Not from that hoped to be…

In the reflection of an eye, I find a reflection…
From neon, twisted here and there, importance on only the seen.
Still there is…
Face facts…or let hope guide?
Hard to decide.
Heart…or mind?
Both of mine know…
I must be true to me!

Mmmm... "Time to come clean, to what time should have been..." Count on a jarhead (absolutely adore Marines!) to sum it up that neatly, that clearly... {=}
