Life Poems 1


A New World

I don’t know where I am. I’m lost and yet there is guidance. Confused as I am, I’m learning quickly. This body is amazing, fascinating even. Who knew hands could do so much?! Did you know that if you reach for something, all of a sudden you hold it?! Its tough to master, but its amazingly satisfying!

Today I touched my mother’s face. Her smile was so wide it could have consumed us both. How is it that such a simple gesture can make my world so large.

I did it again with the hope of seeing her joy once more and this time a bellow came from within myself, for a moment it frightened me… but a joy within me rose above it. Laughter overcame me and I clutched her hair, her smiling face embracing me.

I felt such freedom as the air tickled my skin and we laughed.
