There is a fire within,
shining light
in unexpected places.
It comes out
and brightens
dark days
when nothing
seems to go right.
It is the spirit
of positive energy
chasing away shadows
and disappointment.
It comes of faith
and dedication,
trust and hope.
It cannot
be extinguished,
no matter what happens.
Today is a gift.
I choose
to make it
have value
to the degree
I am able.
The fire within
shines like a beacon
leading me forward.
Don’t look back,
speaks the light,
look ahead.
Tomorrow’s promise
awaits and I
am ready.
