Alone in a ball on the floor

Like a dog who’s wounded to the core

Seeing the bright flash of red

From the cuts that left me for dead

I should be enjoying this moment

Caressing the time, I am free and content

But instead I am left counting

The reality of your hatred and dread

Wounds heal and feelings feel

Days go by and memories reel

I am left to heal alone in my ball

But I will rise no matter how many falls

That unseen Hand reaches in to console

Forgiving and persuading to hear the call

Upward ever upward; you will not win

For I am His child and me He defends

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.

  1. CAROLLLLLLLL. I’ve been looking for you since I came back, which was not long ago, fairly recent. Much took place over the past 3 years (some of which is told in my Hello Frankstein Post – I’ve been fighting my way back ever since. I was sad that I couldn’t find you when I got back (years later). I found many, but not you my dear, so very sweet soft and beautiful Carol.

    I loved your poem, but it also concerned me, I hope it’s fiction, if not, whomever hurt you is going to have me coming after them! 😦

    LOVE YOU ❤ Kimberly

      1. Hello dear Carol! 💖 I hadn’t written in YEARS, and when I did finally start again it was, and is, slow going and in spurts. I’m just happy and relieved to hear back from you. I’ve thought about you for a very long time. I can’t wait to have you see my newer posts – I began again with a small handful in 2018 and a few more recently, but much more important than that is that I hard back from you. You never left my heart or thoughts. Sending you much Love & Light. 💖💖💖
