Flicker Of Hope – Poem of the Month – April 2020

Flicker Of Hope

The hope that is
in my heart
cannot be stolen
or imprisoned
I may lose faith
from time to time
but it is always there
It is who I am
and what defines me
Others can
steal my heart
and my soul
Rob me
of my dignity
and self esteem
Break my spirit
But that flicker
of hope can always
be kindled
It is the eternal flame
that drives me
It cannot be taken
away from me
for I am more
than breath and bone

than breath and bone"

Stop Watering The Weeds

Stop Watering The Weeds

Seeing the seasons
come and go
waiting and watching
wondering
if I’d ever know
 
Preparing myself
purging and clearing
Nothing to do now
but wait
for your appearing
 
That what is asked for
will certainly come
Patience is a virtue
Focusing positively
This is not yet done
 
The road to fulfillment
not for the faint of heart,
is paved with obstacles
Mistakes easily made
When blindly taking part
 
Watering the weeds
considering all possible
A trap laid by despondency
Stop and take the time
The behavior illogical
 
Waiting, trusting
you have heard the call
I am ready
Your arrival now imminent
I have let down the wall
