Today

Jenny Leigh Hodgins 2009

 

Today is my birthday…

Fresh slate, new dawn!

Begin–lay out the way…

Let past be gone!

 

Discard the old to see

Unpaved pathway–

My opportunity–

Chance to portray

 

Who I am, who I’ll be

Now and future

Starting inside of me…

This overture,

 

Musical drama, soars!

Shaping, singing,

Creating unique course

Moving, leading,

 

Guiding me now forward

With new vision

Life is going toward–

Sense of mission

 

Shedding walls holding back

Open, true heart

Launching with full attack

Breaking apart

 

Rusty habits, Let go!

Emerge, arise

Reveal, inspire, flow!

Seize the true prize;

 

It’s this single moment;

Time condenses

Life in this one fragment–

Where my joy is.
