Gentle Soul

I was never one to

have any great dreams,

never one for plans

or extraordinary schemes.

I lived day-to-day

watching my life die,

I never had the wish

to look someone in the eye.

Now that I am older,

I hope it’s not too late,

for I think

I’ve found something

to change my fate. 

A peace has descended

which came as a surprise,

a truth arrived

that wasn’t all lies.

Now as I look

at my life as a whole,

I know at last

I can go gentle on my soul.
