Poetry (words)

Tonight

Tonight I’m walking in the woods. No eggshells underfoot. Tonight I’m myself for the first time in so long. Turning away from all that’s wrong.

Tonight I’m allowing those who tried so hard a chance. To give them the ability to shine.
Tonight I’ll smile that smile and acknowledge those I pushed aside. 

Tonight I’ll be reckless. Caution caught on the cold night air.
Tonight everything I need remains the same, but everything I want will change. 
Tonight I exhale.
