Gratitude Journal Post 16: Innocence

baby kenneth

I am grateful for innocence,

The deep eyes of a newborn.

A seedling,

A baby, a child.

The freshest gaze

A symbol of trust

Without sarcasm or badness or derision.

Before the ego’s haughty garb is donned

The new one

Summons our efforts,

The willingness to hope,

To try again

And creep out of the forest

Into the meadow like a fawn following its mother.

I made it this far and plan to keep going. I believe nature heals the soul. I love to journal, to write, do art, and music. I'm not afraid to tackle tough subjects. Solar-powered & drive hybrid. Trying to do my part. Earned my BA at 53. And, I believe, it's never too late to have a happy childhood.
