Freedom in sunshine & storm

I went to sleep with longings of yesterday and dreams of tomorrow:

I woke up to the melody of my heart drumming to neither yesterday nor tomorrow.

I realize the freedom of dancing now with today’s beat and drums.

Being free:

Not stitching a clothe for the unknown.

Being alive to each new day’s freedom under¬†sunshine and storm..

What a wondrous thing is Now

Born Again

I cannot fit into my Old Shoes:

I have Different Feet now.

I am Born Again.

Moiz Billah

Note: This poem is dedicated to persons who have survived a life changing experience and have to give up their “old self” and find meaning in their new reality. ¬†The metaphor suggests that One’s self is not defined by the shoes one wears (the reality of one’s life) but rather is an invisible, life defining force within you which says, nay screams, “I am Born Again”.
