simple life

it’s complex
not at all
what i imagined
life to be

it’s not what the girl
with her two braids
and, spunky spirit
imagined for herself

and, while i wish
i could return
to simpler times
where it all was such bliss

i count myself blessed
to have known
such simplicity
and, even now
all these years later
despite the unknown
i am filled with joy
knowing that the more complex path
has only fueled my desires
ignited my imagination
and, given me a greater purpose

with passion in my heart
and, empathy in my lungs
i set out to take back
what was taken from
you and I
whatever was stolen
from our childhood
belongs to us again

hope, love, and peace
these things
i write and speak of
to remind humanity
Remain in Him
And, let redemption
be your song

it’s complex
not at all
what i imagined
but, such a beautiful gift life is.
