At Last

Broken Home ~ Photo by Patrice

Crisis happened, crisis passed
Striving to breathe deep breaths
At last, at last.

Hopeful for tomorrow
Sorry for what didn’t last
Finally I can accept myself
At last, at last.

Crisis Crunch

September 10, 2013

Crisis crunch
Not a blessed thing I can do
Master anger here in charge
Not letting anyone disregard
All this mess spread about.

Anger, frustration
Does abound
Method used is not the one
Must change my options
Find someone who knows
Quiet, elegant all
Those wonder times.

Spend it there
Make it like a nursery rhyme
Full of happiness all the time
All the time
Make it a blessed nursery rhyme.

In My Life I’ve Had Some Strife

April 30, 2012

In my life I’ve had some strife
And crisis, one or two.
Makes no difference
What you feel
It’ll happen to you too.

Bless my heart
I did not come apart
I strove to make
A good life from it too.

So now I see
What happened to me
I believe, was meant to be
To make me
A better person too.
