Forever Won’t be Invisible Forever

My shell is falling apart
yet my core is glowing
brighter and stronger.
My renewal’s aches and pains
won’t last forever,
but I will, forever.

Today I choose to
focus on forever,
even if I can’t see it yet,
because I know that
what I see and feel now
won’t last long.
Today I choose to
focus on forever,
without tripping over today.

Head in the clouds,
feet in the mud,
but not stuck in the muck,
groan and moan I may,
yet not a complaint I’ll say.
I look forward to
my new home and clothes.
My shell is falling apart
yet my core is glowing
brighter and stronger.
