Poem: Taking Stock of Life

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Taking stock of life is about one understanding the roadblocks in her way. She knows what she can accomplish and knows she has the wisdom to succeed. She gives herself peace with forgiveness as she mends broken fences. She accepts each new day turning the page starting a new chapter in life.

Taking Stock of Life

In this new year, she clearly sees
the roadblocks tormenting her life,
the accomplishments she can achieve,
knowing she has the wisdom to make a difference.

With a forgiving heart
she mends broken fences,
allowing her mind to discover
a rainbow of peace.

Accepting each new day
purifying her heart from evil,
showing the world
she can turn the page
to start a new chapter.
