Odd Comfort

There are flashes
that come to me
during normal days
while standing in the
warm sun, looking out
over the morning dew;

the same warm sun
once upon a time
I seldom noticed
as I stood in the cold
shadows of change.

The normalcy I now claim
strokes me with a nurturing
simplicity that once would
have repulsed me.

There is a strange comfort
in remembering my days
of morbid discontent
along with an irony
of knowing there is more
behind me
than before me.

Therefore, as I stand and reflect
it is with a cautious heart
that I reflect on the accumulative
history of errors that have made
me who I am today.
