I woke up this morning rejuvenated by
The beautiful view from my window.
The sky was enchanted by majestic colors,
Blue, pink, red, orange, gray, yellow…
And I felt so good that, I forgot yesterday
And the gloomy remembrance of him.
I felt alive! Happy! Energetic! Eager to
Start a new cycle of metaphors and similes
On everything I touch, smell, see, hear, and feel.
God, Nature, and the environment that surrounds me
It remind me that there is still hope for me,
A taciturn-afflicted animal creature of Earth.
