Willing to admit Life is difficult, can hurt, But brave the storm surge, Even when it is draining The strength of every muscle. Stifling those voices Declaring all effort failure – Living, judged worthless; Rejecting embarrassment When considered mistaken. Remembering each Victory and happening Received cheerfully, Believing more will occur To offset the constant pain. Being a human, A fight, beginning to end, Worth every teardrop; Known as an overcomer With God battling beside.
Today was one of those days, A late start, but on time, An appointment that tried my mind A leave-taking ahead of time A lunch most divine With conversation that brought Me back in sync with life. A shopping trip I almost skipped But found needs met, something more, Came home to find packages Sitting in the rain, damages, Called Amazon, they corrected, So much better than expected. God’s grace saw me through He is ever, always true. This may seem not as it should But I haven’t strength to make good Beyond this here, I wish I could. Bear with me as I reset, and process What was for me an incredible day.
I do not have the words to tell you All the things I would love to say They hide in an ocean of bewilder; My tongue is tied, knowing not the way, I whip up my courage as I may Hoping I will find a surer pathway To reveal the feelings of today; I love you does not seem enough to say.
As a prompt, pick a name, phrase, verse, whatever you will. Put one letter below the other down your page and write a poem. The form is called an Acrostic. Sometimes I will do them of people’s names. It is unique.

Be the sun that shines, The star that guides, The heart that beats, The focus that leads, The example that feels, The hand that reaches, The soul that believes, The one that lifts the fallen, The mind that searches, The question finding answers, The brave that continues, The failure that succeeds, The intelligence in darkness, The person for all people, The hallelujah and amen, The strength to begin again, The one that helps overcome, The ears that diligently listen, The scholar that teaches, The hands that build, The one who can forgive, The charitable to the needy, The good that will not stop, The music that mends minds, The words that need speaking, But most of all be The LOVE that lights Every corner of existence And assists humanity.
