Another year coming to a close.
Another obstacle is looming in the night.
The truth is difficult to see through the fog and mist.
I lose myself in the storms and barrage.
Reflection upon what matters most is heightened.
I turn inward to those close,
To those weathering the hurricane,
and moving forward against the odds.
Stepping back amidst the chaos,
The sky gives way to thin clouds,
and further to the scattered light
constructed from the same molecules as myself.
