A Simple Rhyme

Out with the old
And into the new

Coming from black
And turning it blue

Getting through hate
Giving it with love

Coming up from hell
Going to heaven above

Your arms are closed
The wings spread wide

Telling the truth
Turning them to lies

Going from rich
Ending in poor

Never say less
Forever is more

Going from dark
Stepping into the light

What is done wrong
Must make it right

From the brightest day
To the darkest night

Losing a battle
Winning a fight

humans are weak
God is might

coming from sight
going blind

what is yours
is now mine

us wanting 
is to have

dont be sad
just be glad

do smile
please dont frown

going from deaf
hearing those sounds

what was white 
is now black

this is this 
that was that

walking tall
feeling small

maybe weak
but its strong

feeling regret
praying for hope

listen to the do's
never the don'ts

please be quiet
don't make a sound

i hate the city
but love the town

i once was born
and soon i'll die

this is what i call
a simple rhyme

    GOOD AFTER NOON, RAQUEL. Thank you for the comment and reminder about your poetry. I thought you left for good. However I did enjoy your poem. Brings out a new attitude in mind. Hope you are doing good, and what was the change all about. As for me I have to keep both my poet minds alive. LOL, my sister went back to school and her hubby does not let her help me on my poetry account, but I still come and post and comment all my poet friends. Thanks and have a nice day*luv~SKAT
