A New Smile

IMG_20160702_142855I’ve been hiding for a long time.
Not behind someone or something else,
Behind another me.

But change comes.
Change is bright.
Like a sand storm,
It polishes the desert clean
To start anew.

My life is fresh again,
Where I stand is all new
And yet I hung on to that old me.
To the me that hid, and squirmed,
And was a little too shy.

But today I stand with the storm gone by.
Maybe still a little too shy,
But I’m not going to hide
Behind a shadow of myself.
I have a new smile.
