I HAVE BEEN THERE


Down and my soul weary

Clouded with troubles and my heart weak

I never say never

Looking opaque

And my path murky

Struggling to survive

Hidden in shadows

I aspire

Trying to make myself known

Craving desperately for love

Put down by people with cruel intent

But I was so inspired

Depressed and thinking negatively

Voice soaked in emotions

And with gloomy face always

I remain firm and unwavering in my purpose

My wall brought down by severe people of nasty purpose

Held hostage by circumstances

Despair and in thought of suicide

But without fail…………

I rose, for I was persistent

I was the scorn of the community

And my life thwarted

But faith and hope kept me moving

And now I have crossed that ocean of problems

I ran fast past that hurricane of depression

Now I’m walking on water

Living that dream

My very own dream

    You cant begin to imagine how much I can relate.
    Good writing brother. God Bless.

  2. Dear Numero Uno, In case I haven’t mentioned it, I want to thank you very much for liking my poem “I Colored A Dream Today.” I’m trying to get up to date with my very late thank you’s because you and other bloggers so thoughtfully responded to me. BTW Wow! Great soul poetry (the only kind that is REAL). Love the uplift/redemption at the end. I have a lot like that. I guess because I can relate too! I look forward to receiving more.
