“Unable for so long to smile”

Unable for so long to smile—
Tense facial muscles ache,
Yes one’s heart has grown
Three fold.

The body relaxes
From previously unthinkable
And unknown tensions.

The rebirth now seems
An eternity in coming
As one flows
Many miles on the river
In seconds—
Realizing prior stagnation.
