There was once a time

Wow, long time no update……….sorry folks!

Well, a few days ago I was just sitting around and for some reason or another I felt like writing a poem.  It wasn’t much at all – quite simple actually – but I wanted to express something out of me at that time.  Recalling back memories of what my family had to go through once upon a time drove me to write what I wrote.

.

Hope you all can benefit something from this!  Enjoy….  🙂

There Was Once a Time

by subtle_fortitude

.

Gazing in the sky I see

twinkling stars smiling freely.

The air cool and serene.

I know the LORD is watching down on me.

.

There was once a time of grief,

There was once a time of pain.

But who knew?

Not you, not anyone sane.

.

There was once a time of hurt,

There was once a time of sorrow.

But who cared?

Not you, not anyone wanted to know.

.

Day by day,

I faced challenges,

Day by day,

I fought savages.

.

and,

.

Day by day,

I sought strength,

Day by day,

I sought fortitude.

.

In the end,

Storms slowly became sprinkles,

Waves gradually became ripples.

You know why?

Because I know the LORD is always watching down on me. 🙂
