I Am Complete

The cool breeze blows through my hair;
the birds are singing and the trees are budding.
All around nature reaches out to touch me.
Nothing disturbs the sounds of nature
except for my shoes hitting the concrete.
My stride is long as I run along the highway of life.
I am alone and it feels good.
I am happy with myself and filled with peace and tranquility.
As I cross a bridge, I reflect on emotional bridges I have crossed
and remember all the pillars that supported me.
I am free as the wind.
I alone control my destiny.
I choose to sing like the birds and bud like the trees.
I become a pillar to help the next person over the bridges of life.
I am complete.

The second to last line is my favorite. I believe that's why we're here. Thank you.

Drifter, Mike and Susan - Thank you. I don't usually write non-rhyming poetry but every once in a while it works. ;-)

Jill - I think you are right. Supporting others and allowing ourselves to be supported by others is integral to a happy and fulfilled life.
