“A Truth”

I am blessed
he shows me this in so many ways
when im down and out
he gives me – lends me…
in so many ways
it’s when I don’t think of him
that’s when he surprises me
so in turn it reminds me

I am blessed
he can turn the worries into elation
he loves with those unexpected gifts
which reminds me to be unselfish
to give….
not to be heavily concerned with returns

I am blessed
so its to be more like him…
Deep rooted, constant, fearless
it’s for these things I yearn

NaPoWriMo: Day 13 Prompt

I’m ready…
The day is done
Or is it the night?…
Its cold out there
And the sun wont be bright
Snows coming down
Wind blowing right
Just means the cold is going to bite
Punch these numbers to the clock
Everything buttoned
Everything tight
I’m off
Starting my day by ending my night
Lets make this as speedily as possible
Feet sinking into the powder
Step by quick step
these moccasins are going to get wet
slush, slide,
down the street
through the hotel parking lot
down the back then up the bridge
down the bridge
I can feel the jacket getting heavy with the spring snow
white turns to brown
as traffic slides by slow
some splash and miss me
I’m walking on
tam down low
headphones on
I’ve reached my destination
waiting for this bus to get on
