Shining Through

Dark corner
Closed eyes
Scared to open and see what you'll find
Never ending days
Walking through a daze
Keep getting kicked back down
Surprised when you hear a sound
After so long
Could it be?
You open your eyes to see
A light shining through
Is it true?
All this time
So much has passed you by
Hope surges
Encourages
You feel your strength return
Nothing else holds your concern
Grasping for the light
The most beautiful sight
That light shining through
It's coming to you.

    Yes enjoyed our trip, it was super hot. If you have a chance read my Girl Rising Poem, I think you will appreciate it. I also wrote a sequel called boy sitting. I hope all is well with you, have a great day.

    Yes a very hopeful piece. Sometimes it can feel like we are living in an endless winter but spring and summer do come and yes sunshine once again shines upon us and hope rises once again.

    I can relate to that. When I first started writing and then showing my friends them, one of the complaints was that they were too depressing. First I just brushed it off and then realized they were right... now my goal is to just write whatever comes to mind, and do it in the best way I can.

    HA! Mines too. My friend was like, "Whoa Caleah..you're getting dark." But hey, I write for myself so..yeah. Good for you!

    Reminds me of sleeping outside on the hammock and waking up to that "light shining through". Seems to me a poem about good thoughts and encouragements coming your way... love the positive vibes in this one :)
