#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
