You know the guy, classic goof, loves bad jokes. But has a copious amount of knowledge in, well, everything & they call the "parent" of the friendship group? I'm that guy

accept change will be the only constant in your life, & laugh at the irony of it. - @inanutshell

Dreams, come and go but ideas flow out this head of mine.

I'm a creator of worlds. I bleed to put words on a page. I dream of wondrous, creative and intelligent people, people I wish I knew. I reveal my true self to others, inner thoughts, hopes, dreams and values.

I fill screens with words, paper with ideas, and my head with dreams.
I write, and share with you.

One Day At A Time

May 1, 2020

A staircase to the sun
Shimmering on the river beyond
Water droplets twinkling
Catching her light as she shines down

Stormclouds brewing
Rain pitter-pattering on the roof, bring life to those below
The sky filled with shades of grey
A renewal, a rebirth of growth for the parched earth

For most
The outside is unfamilar
Dreams and wishes
existing only on a pinboard, or a desktop background

Though, don't despair
She's here still
Existing quietly
Waiting for you to come back

When we do
She'll still be here

The earth goes on
The moon and sun continue to cycle through the sky
Sunsets create glorious gradients
Look, you've lived through another day

The earth shall keep on turning
This pain will ease
Time keeps pressing on

If you can live for the day
If you can live for the week
If you can live for the month

You can live through this
Take it one day at a time

One day...
You can break out into the sunshine
As she wraps you in a warm embrace
Keep the hope alive in your heart
It will happen, I promise

One day...
This will all subside
You can look back and say
We did it, we survived.

    Niiice! I love the rhythm to this, plus it's such a hopeful message! Your second stanza had such great imagery and I particularly loved the sixth stanza; the way you describe the sky is so beautiful!
