Exile

I’ve been lost for years, exiled in my own suffering.  Finally discovering that suffering and exile are a choice, I set out on a quest to discover how to choose a different path.  Finding my old poems and exploring where my path turned, I have taken the initial steps toward home again.  Like the prodigal son, there are many who applaud and welcome you when you take this step, but there are others who are jealous and angry that you get so much attention, seemingly for nothing.  Anyone who has ever been lost knows the great personal courage it takes to right the course, to face the dawn of a new day.  (10-10-12)
