Two poems today…my poem is first and actually happened to me this morning. The second is by my husband… because he likes to write poetry sometimes too!
I was offered a random hug today
from a random stranger
she looked at me with warmest eyes
and sweetly smiled while she chimed
you my dear, look like a girl in need of a hug
she approached without hesitation
arms open ever so wide
of course I could not deny
I did indeed, need a hug this day!
I can live within your shadow.
I can hide behind a smile.
I can make you feel so mighty.
Trust in me is pure regret.
…HOW can you not just see me?
…HOW can you sink so deeply?
I laugh while you spiral downward.
I can twist all white to black
I can shine of bleak deception.
Mistaking hope for true dependence.
…WHY can’t you just deny me?
…WHY can’t you rise above me?
You can change your circumstances,
You can make it turn out right,
Shift you’re your heart from gray to yellow,
Step from darkness into light
