take the chance

if I don’t take the chance
recognize
this window
of opportunity
that’s materializing
before me
to transform myself
yes…. fly
like the butterfly
uninhibited
with the wind
today will only become
another yesterday
another day
I didn’t take that chance
to begin ~ become
who I possibly could be

Image & Words by ~Keith Alan Hamilton~

I wrote this poem after Jimmy came to me in the form of a butterfly while I was mowing the lawn a few weeks after he passed. His message to me was comfirmed later that night in a dream.
