falling from the sky

a fierce force down,
bringing a rush of worry,
and a hit of regret

this swollen anxiety-
that time
has left thee

a decade
a vital decade,
a time of frolicking
in golden beams

why have I not
been on this beach
enjoying life

why have I, instead,
allowed discontent
to rule

I toss
this discontent
into the wind
this day

as forgiveness,
and hope
can overcome

for really, where else
was I
to go
but down
when falling from the sky?
