Renewal

A Mindful Poem

Like the little droplets of rain

Which soon disappear as they hit the ground

I too wish to quickly vanish

At the end of the day.

I long for nothingness,

And I hope all is no longer here.

No thoughts, worries, fears, or even hope,

As the moon rises and consumes it all

And it’s all put to rest.

But as the sun comes up every morning,

A new version of me is born

With the same naivete of a child

With the same innocence as any sentient being.

I open my windows and watch the world unfold

As if it were my very first time watching it.

My soul, my body, and my essence

They’ve all been renewed.

I am thus resurrecting daily

Learning to like new things every day

Or even hate new things too.

I discover a new piece of me that has been buried for so long

As I let go of the day before.

It’s conscious, forced amnesia of some sort

But it’s the only way I can thrive

Through a daily sense of peace

Through the blessing of renewal.
