Time To Cast It All Aside
Cancer has been cut away,
Bitterness has left me room,
Time to cast my final glance,
And leave behind such obvious gloom.

New sun shining in the sky,
Golden beams slowly cascade,
I lift my face to absorb it full,
All my pain begins to fade.

Time to cast it all aside,
Time to throw down all that aches,
Time to move along the path,
Time to forgive all that I hate.

She looks at me in anticipation,
I look down on my legacy,
A new page in my tell-tale book,
Will she be proud of what's become of me?

A new path in this golden country,
A new eve in this life of mine,
No more blame to cast at all,
Dawn breaks fresh with new sunshine.

I often wonder how people who are so young can be so expressive, but I see you have lived more than most people. As I've said to you before, I truly like your poetry. This one is gratitude preserved.

The sincerity comes through, the voice of hope.It is not 'forced' ,a genuine voice.

I can relate to your writing 'problem' for lack of a better word. Its easier for me to write about what makes me have the strongest reactions. Sadly, some of the strongest reactions are to negatives. The positive things that impact us the hardest are few and far between but oh are they worth it. Our 'legacies' are great positive inspirations :) Your poem doesn't sound forced. Its very hopeful and bright. I like it.

I find that a lot of my writing leaves even me desperate and hopeless. I honestly have a hard time writing anything else. I tried my hand at something with a little less chaos in it and this is what came out. It felt a little unnatural to me, hopefully it doesn't "feel forced" to you guys, enjoy.
