#47 of 365 – “rescued from the fray”

“rescued from the fray”

  

gratitude is a difficult thing

for me to capture

 

so easy to focus

on all that is wrong

 

I often miss the moments

of sublime rapture

 

instead, questioning

if that is somewhere I belong

 

it gets tiring,

all the focus on darkness and mud

 

as if darkness itself

runs too deep in my blood

 

for me to notice when light

has gently ushered it away

 

softening the edges

of a pretty good day

 

and illuminating a life

truly rescued from the fray
