Passing through the pages of life,
some chapters are thin and we quickly move,
some consume years and decades.
After decades in one chapter,
it is natural to wonder, is it really over?
Is it time to move on?
Moments of doubt creep in,
pulling with strength – an attempt
to drag you back into the previous chapter.
In these struggles mired in cold wind and rain
outer layers and no longer needed fragments are washed away,
leaving the raw self free of burden with clear vision.
Only then do the fields open.
Only then can we move forward.
Only then can we truly start the next chapter.
