Nature's Pace
A divine dance of green leaf-light
Awakened by the evening's glow
Forever lost the narrowed sight
This contrived night
A thought's shadow

My footsteps fall upon deaf ears
My mind consumed by fallen tears
Claim Nature's pace as my birthright
And dissolve these implanted fears

Though lesson's learned - I can't explore
Results of this philosophy
For habits burned into my core
Prevent no more
Than words from me

But words are seeds that carry hope
And soon - forgotten roots will grope
Through cracks in future present's door
To witness life and I elope

For on that special wedding day
Without my stubborn past's consent
Each sounding step will lead the way
To feel the play
Of each moment
