Sometimes you just need a poem. Poetry encapsulates the human experience in a suscint manner. A poem will remind you of what it is to be human, unique and corporate simultaneously. Some days I really need the reminder.
How I need a poem today
For I am feeling very…grey,
And brown, black and even-blue
But, this day will be over very soon.
And tomorrow is a brand-new day
With every promise of joy to stay.
So, I’ll not let the faded color
Of one dull day leave me sullen.
Poetry can grace a life
In both times of peace but, also strife.
Lack of courage shan’t be found here.
I’ll not be disgruntled or dragging drear.
For I am blessed most plentifully
So I will not lack jollity.
I find joy in my faith
Knowing I always live in grace.
Grace on glorious goldenrod, maples and hay.
Even on the dull-grey days
That fade each life some step of the way.
Oh, how I need a poem today!
