Mangy Mutt

Bend and stretch you mangy mutt of doubt and shadow,

loosen your hold on me,

The changes wished for,

worked for,

and often celebrated,

still fall prey to your insistent howls,

and I fall backwards over and over.

 

Rise again I will,

and each day with a smile,

a kiss,

an embrace,

a steady breath,

break free for a little while,

growing farther and farther away

from the source

of your beginnings.
