Believe In The Impossible

Texas River

It took weeks to write them out one by one
Things I wished I would have done differently
Actions that could not be undone
Words I just couldn’t take back

The paper already worn with struggles and tears
Torn into a million tiny pieces and burned to ash

It was time to let them go
Time to release them to the river
flowing away from the depths of my soul

I stood staring into the starless sky
The lonely sound of the train whistle off in the distance
Waiting for new words that refused to come in the darkness
Wishes that refuse to be wished for even a moment
Yet somehow free from the chains of my past

And still, late at night
when all is quiet in the world
I still dream
I still believe in the impossible…

    “I still believe in the impossible…”, at last a believer to the impossible. Miracles are made to happen. Just have to open your mind. I love your forum.

    I understand. I have been there; done that; bought a couple T-shirts; don’t want to go back.

    Let’s go forward together. I’ll encourage you if you’ll encourage me.
