A year ago I had been frozen.
The frigid frost had seeped into my mind,
Spread into my heart no matter the obstacle I had set before it
And I could not stop all my senses from becoming numb to the world.
A year ago I had been lost.
The crisp cold that had spread throughout me
And numbed my senses had also left me groping for some kind of path
That refused to show itself through the veil.
Sometime ago I had breathed.
I took a breath of bliss that gave me a glimpse
Of paradise and a glow that thawed my heart
And opened my mind.
Sometime ago I was freed.
That breath I took had blown away the veil
To show me the wonder of being alive
And all the crossroads that were to be created.
Now I am alive.
I can feel and breath, wonder and sense,
and appreciate the shimmering ice that
Reflects the hues of the aurora
