The Confession

My days are everyday realities

I spent them wondering about tomorrow

I am genuinely a dreamer

I see both night & day

Both times are given to be living until I am aged

I hope for a future & another day

I embraced the sunshine

The light I see is Life

I stood among the elements—

nature’s given moments in time

I marveled at its beauty

I accept this as certainty

I believed as faith asked/& sometimes/

I fall into skepticism

Yes/ it’s true/ I am a mortal/

& The Creator I am not

So/ I live this day!
