Time to move on

What do you do

When the world frowns at you

When your life’s upside down

Is there hope to be found?


Where do you go

When the rain turns to snow

When your life feels insane

Is your psyche still sound?


How do you know

When the words are all faux

When the light’s a feint glow

Is your ship run aground?


Why do you stay

When your heart starts to break

When the give is all take

Is your freedom now drowned?


Who do you tell

When you know it’s a spell

When the tears start to flow

Is your life come unbound?


When do you know

It’s the last picture show

Now its time to move on

Let the darkness be gone

  1. You hit the nail on the head, Tracy–It’s all a picture show. Let the darkness be gone. You are the light. I’ve been using this Rumi quote a lot lately, “the wound is the place where the light enters you.”

    • I like that quote Kozo…. I have plenty of wounds and very little darkness so I think it must be true. One day when my work here is done perhaps I’ll be a supernova shining brightly to illuminate a dark spot in the galaxy. 🙂


    • I try to remain positive – there is so much sadness and misery in the world already, it doesn’t need another person adding to that. Thanks for complimenting my writing, I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
