My friends always seem to inspire my poetry and this offering is no different. I took one line from a conversation that I was having with Michelle Belle (a blackberry conversation) and developed the rest of the poem around it. See if you can guess which line it is
I laugh out loud
Just to keep from crying.
If the rainbow is a promise
Then what’s the storm?
After all, the damage has already been done!
I’ve made so much from so little
Now I’m left alone to pick up the pieces
All is gone; left with only rubble.
I have to start over, back to square one
Run the race again,
When it was so close to being won.
It pains me to know,
But at least I’ve got the experience to lean on…
I’ve done it before
And I surely can do it again.
Walking through the blazing sun
Dancing in the pouring rain,
Living to see another day.
Light always follows the dark of the night
So showers of blessings will come my way.
From the ashes I am reborn
Walking with my chest to the sky,
As I hop, skip and jump through
This maze called life.
Wish me the best,
Please I beg!
But, not luck though,
There’s no such thing
When you’re divinely blessed…
