Unknown Changes

Sometimes it is not as simple as leaving  
Things behind in the rearview mirror as
I move forward, but that is what I have  
To do; onward and upward to something  
New around the corner with no grieving  
Over someone I used to be. The topaz  
Colored water called my name as half  
Of me is terrified and the other is jumping  
Headfirst into the waves of the unknown.  
The waves of change that are at my feet.  
Just take a deep breath and let it sink  
Into my heart.
This is what I have always  
Wanted; an opportunity to be all alone  
And start again where people in the street  
Do not know me by name. I never rethink  
Or doubt as airplanes leave the runways  
On their way to their final destinations just  
Like I should welcome every change with  
Open arms. Welcome home. This is where  
You belong.
Even in the murky depths of  
Everything chaotic I find my life blessed  
With new beginnings. Just as a wordsmith  
Creates a newly written chapter I swear  
To always find mine both in life and love.
