Pebbles Fade Into Dust
Long ago, I lay bruised on a pebble beach
The jagged rocks had cut me deep
I remained bleeding and afraid
Beached, my heart remained in pieces
The old shards are now blunt
Crusty edges softened by time
And light ascends from their sandy chasms
As a shining, sifting through scarred fears
I now see clearly beyond the gravelly shore
My distant dreams, changing into realities
I am finished hurdling fences and walls
My lifelong barriers have been ground into dust
And love awaiting, serenades my soul with trust
