Revived

Bright sky

I sat with Despair

She held my hand and led me

Into sinking sand

Where I met disappointment

Doubt and disbelief

I watched my dreams fading

Near Disappearing

And then I felt a presence

A Hand lifting and leading

Me out to a better place

A land of hope and purpose

Where the Light shines

Upon dreams making them new

A firm foundation

Where no Disses can dwell

An encouraging

Place full of life where

I’m building a good future

Inside and Out

Person in thought, dreaming inside, beside a window covered in raindrops

Emotions stir inside of me

Thoughts rushing in like a hurricane

Cripple my mind causing great pain

Cold feet numb, desire to flee

Would I not gotten so intense

Spoke out loud the things inside

Revealed hurts instead of hide

Tried to reason with offense

But nay, I kept it trapped within

Tongue lies silent in its tomb

Nerves on edge await their doom

I need new life to begin

God reveal to me what to do

No one knows me better than You

Sonnet (English)

#OctPoWriMo Day 26

What is inside you (thoughts, feelings etc) that should be out to the world, but aren’t? Do you have anything inside you that is out, but that you didn’t want to be? Or maybe you are relieved that these ‘inside’ feelings are finally ‘out’?

Suggested forms: Sonnet
Word prompts
open, secret, introspective, reveal, discover

Color Beyond Better

Colored pencils forming a heart shape

Broken crayons still color

Broken hearts still love

Color your world bright

Color is beautiful

Love everyone

Love never fails

Bright spots attract growth

Bright days attract smiles

Beautiful smiles

Beautiful thoughts

Everyone needs a smile

Everyone matters

Fails are bound to happen

Fails are opportunities to try again

Growth comes from fails

Growth often happens slowly

Smiles are free

Smiles are needed

Smiles are upside down frowns

Smiles lighten up the world

Thoughts spoken can cause regret

Thoughts unspoken can cause regret

Smile at life, you only get one chance

Smile at life and things will go better

Matters of the heart

Matters of the mind

Happen to all of us

Happen unexpectedly

Again and again and

Again and again

Fails are just one time errs not failures

Fails are a chance to try something new

Slowly time goes for those who wait

Slowly time goes for the lonely

Free yourself from doubts trust God

Free yourself from worry trust God

Needed people who are friendly

Needed people who care

Frowns compliment garments of gloom

Frowns are smiles upside down

World needs your love

World needs your smile

Regret steals happiness

Regret steals time

Chance offers new opportunities

Chance offers new life

Better life can be yours today

Better take a chance before it’s too late

Better

Better

#OctPoWriMo 2018

Whew! This is my first try at writing a Blitz poem! It was a challenge, somewhat confusing at times, and took me awhile but I enjoyed it and I will be trying this form out again! Info is below if you would like to try writing one.

The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.

(Blitz poem info was taken from Poetry Soup website )

Of Plans and Paths

Path

An unexpected crack in my plans

Puts me on a path of imperfection

I must keep myself from slipping

And with new eyes, begin again

I can’t let my plans slip away

I must now patch the imperfection

That arose and caused me to have

An unexpected crack in my plans

With new eyes I search for an answer

That will help me smooth out my plans

To keep me from a happening that

Puts me on a path of imperfection

As I avidly search to find the answer

I come upon one who offers help

He extends His strong hand, I grasp it

I must keep myself from slipping

My kind strong Helper leads me to new places

Places where I can find perfect plans

Good sound plans created just for me

And with new eyes begin again
