the Other Side

battles still rage among countless emotions

and attempts at unwinding create days of doubt

there is reason to fight

seeking constant confidence in what we receive

asks me to stop travelling the lonely road

and live the moment

not always upon my sleeve

optimism bleeds through healing wounds

I still believe in the sunshine after the rain

postcards I receive don’t have to remind me

I know you send them to keep me moving

my mind’s mailbox wears a smile
