Best Blessing

Facing any criticism, Like crude barbarism, Had been true terror for me, Stung my heart like jungly honey-bee...! Little taunting enough, To make my mind fluff; Days and nights I brooded, Over anything that deluded...! Psyche filled with suspicion, At two people's conversation; They're talking ill of me, I thought, When got chance, with them I fought...! Doubts ate up peace like parasites, Often led to silly fights; Each one suffered damages, Thought: have we turned savages...? Void betwixt like valleys, Widened each day like alleys; Why betwixt humans such distance? Why is such existence? Tranquility got trailed, Harmony re-railed; Enlightenment, Left negligent...! During midnight prayers, Alone at church-upstairs, Heart filled with fears, I implored the Lord in tears...! Could a father see his son cry? Doesn't he hasten to wipe his eye? And so the lord responded Took hold of me as though bonded...! === I bloom a smile on all today, Forgetting events of yesterday; No doubt; no venom; no burden; Life has turned Garden of Eden...! 22 November 2022 Best Blessing Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Regina McIntosh
