I wrote this poem to express endurance, optimism and hope for the future, when going through difficult circumstances

born with a sour spoonful in my mouth

i know life is not always sweet

it can be a handful

still

i am grateful

i woke up ages ago

long before there was any coffee for me to smell

back when my parents protected me and all was well

i woke up long before morning

long before it dawned on me

that life is a load you carry

and well before

the calm before the storm

i haven’t closed my eyes since…

an insomniac

i’ve seen it all

dark times the more

when my life was night

my eyes were wide open

i’ve seen it all

dark times the more

anyway…

love life and live!

on that

my mind is set

and this

is my mindset:

like earth

life spins and

light shines on the other side

of my world

so i reflect

again and again

on good thoughts

and let the light in my heart

light up my world

until day comes again

THE END
