Lost mantra

Don’t go gently
with your head to the ground
following your sad shadow.
Go with brazen yell
shouting you will overcome.
These depths are not for drowning.

Don’t go gently
like a mouse ashamed
of stealing cheese.
Go with eyes up and heart courageous
acknowledging lessons
accepting challenges.

Don’t go gently
as a weak candle
being snuffed by tears of remorse.
Go like a blazing bonfire
certain there is more to embrace.
Forgive this heart its bruises.
Let tomorrow define tomorrow.
