Blessing

A small cell
Dark, cold, bare…
A small vent that lets a faint light in.
A rumbling sound coming from far far away…
Getting closer and closer
Suddenly,
A crashing BOOM
A big bolder chokes the small hole
Leaving only a sliver of light.
The battering sound is deafening
Rocks fall tumbling down
Utterly closing the vent.  
And then
There is total darkness…
Dirt pours in filling every craves
The air thick with dust.
Suffocation is slow, numbing, 
Clouding the mind…
There is nothing to see,
To breathe,
To think.
Death comes
As a last peaceful blessing.         


Life


Life


If life throws punches at you,
You spring back up if you are grounded 
If the winds of fortune blow you off course
You find your way if you have a goal 
You find the truth amid the lies if you have never been lied to
You forgive easily if you have known forgiveness
You take the high road when people are petty
When you know benevolence
You love all people if you are loved.

But sometimes you want to stay down and cry
And sometimes you want to stay lost
Sometimes you believe the lies because the truth hurts
Often it’s hard to forgive evil
When hurt by petty you sink down low to hurt back
And some people just don’t deserve to be loved

I’m tired of standing up
Of choosing the righteous path
I want to forget reality and escape to a fantasy world
I want to strike back like a venomous snake

To punch below the belt
And show my hatred to those who deserve

You came on the wings of an angel
Soft, pink, and lovely
 Your big dark eyes wise
Your innocent smile knowing.
You filled our hearts with unimaginable
Tenderness and love.
Your little perfect hands reaching
For our fingers to grasp.
You slept on our breasts trusting
We won’t move until you wake. 
You came to bring us giggles
That resonates like bells.
You brought sunshine to all our days.
You love with abundant
And we go wild with happiness.
We orbit around you
Like you are the Sun.            
You are a blessing
We dare we deserve.
You have become the air
We need to breathe.
You are life
You are light
You are love…
