The New You is Ready
By Don Iannone

Is your soul asking you
to turn in a new direction:
one having more light, and
one having more heart?
Is the old you getting in the way
of the new you...
that is trying desperately
to come into being?
Is your day filled with resistance,
causing you to wonder
if you're possessed
by some demonic force?
Do you find yourself...lost,
alone, afraid, and uncertain...
more than you find yourself at peace,
assured, happy, and connected to the universe?
Listen to your soul,
and its message
that you have been reborn,
and the new you is ready.

You truely have a gift for complex poetry. I must admit this poem has given me some lyrical lines to play with and ponder. Are you up for a co writing credit?

The new you is present
in every present moment.
How often do we miss
meeting the new you
without a moment's notice!

Thanks everyone.

Tim, you are so right.

Kathleen, thanks. Yes, resting more.

I'm ready to slip the new me on, but I haven't one in my size. Love the thoughts in this!!

Don, this is one of your loveliest, truest poems yet. It speaks to me on several levels. I've printed it out and taped it near my computer, where I can't help but reflect on it several times a day. What greater impact can one person have on another than that? Better yet, I know it'll be joined soon by another of your poems that I'll like even more. Happy new year to you, my friend.
