Up and Left

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “If You Leave.”

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

Said goodbye to the land of my birth

Leaving you filled me with trepidation

To another compass point on our earth

Must admit that there was not much elation

The land of our Savior was calling our names

A heart beat of an ancient people and space

Inviting to taste of life without all the games

Just hope there will be a sense of true grace

❤ ❤

She became the home of my weary soul

Fulfillment found in the sublime simplicity

Learning my place and finding a new role

Culturally rich and filled with splendid ethnicity

❤ ❤ ❤

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
