Happy

sunrise

Today the sun is shining

And last week things were bad

Inside it was rain

And clouds

That for a time obliterated happiness

Now you see

More of the way your mind works

At times throwing shadows over things

And painting them black

With old pains and disappointment

That stopped you reaching for life

Or trusting goodness and love

Now the walls are down

The critic’s voice is not as loud

As it was

And you can see the brightness

Of what holds promise

And you know

That often joy is revealed

Only after dark nights and days of pain or suffering

Reveal deep wounds and errors

Born of pain you didn’t cause

And compassion shows you

That happiness and serenity lie

Not in beating yourself up

But in surrendering your resistance and pain

To love

That in time

Has the power

To heal all wounds
