like the weather

silky seasonal haze
intermittent pain

will not cloud my judgment

this murky mental fog
                will dissipate

like the weather and its ways

i can see through what is there

i have survived

temperamental indifference
truly toxic relationships

     daring distrust

and personal lack of
steady self-confidence

embittered past
     taking its toll

i have been less than
what I really am

                   i am more

i choose to look ahead

another day
