The Brilliance of Better Days (a villanelle sequel to Work Persona)…

I’ve relaxed and settled in my chair

it’s been far too long

my surroundings I’m aware

perhaps I sought relief with prayer

knowing me, it was through song

I’ve relaxed and settled in my chair

22 years put gray in my hair

but now, I’m feeling strong

my surroundings I’m aware

two years away, gave me time to prepare

my attitude was wrong

I’ve relaxed and settled in my chair

emotions damaged, but not beyond repair

for decades I was withdrawn

my surroundings I’m aware

on the daily, no longer basking in despair

with this transformation I have undergone

my surroundings I’m aware

I’ve relaxed and settled in my chair

I’ve relaxed and settled in my chair
