A New Day

Awakening in the gutter of my life
I am finally ready
to move on.

The seeds of change have finally sprouted
their life force empowers me --
at last.
it is time.

I rise, and the weight of the filth
of self degradation and loathing
is gone,
and the fresh wind of the day
blows the stench of inaction away.

A step forward, unsteady,
but a step nonetheless
and I move ahead --
even one step is a step
in the right direction
towards freedom.

The man in the mirror
older now, but wiser
and ready to be
