A New Day: Poem – Lunes “Embers of Light Repair” #amwritingpoetry

*****

There’s hope, vivacity hiding in —

Each subtle pain;

Hope despite despairing pain cruel.

*****

Though, cringing — I smile anyways;

Never knowing tomorrow’s —

Treasures; nor its growing pains.

*****

It doesn’t matter; I’m well.

Whatever comes, I —

Accept; not alone, not afraid.

*****

Life might bleed futilely; eyes —

Tear oceans: back —

Bent; yet, pain tenaciously rebuilds.

*****

Though tomorrow chills my bones,

I’ve a responsibility;

I must reconstruct my life.

*****

I must utilize my skills, fight —

Despite dark disrepair;

I’ve burning light, only it repairs.

*****

I’ve a melodic tune within —

Chasing agony away;

I awake, absorb mellow effervescence .

*****

Though muscles creak; fatigue freezing,

Killing the fight;

Embers of hope burn forevermore.

  1. This work shows the speaker’s bravery. Not to deny pain by pretending it’s not there. To know it, have it, and have hope and even the responsibility to “reconstruct my life.” This stanza reads especially powerfully as a turning-point promise to take specific steps.

    This is inspiring, Amanda!

    1. Thanks Shivangi. It’s been a bit of a rough summer health wise, but things are going okay now. Back at my apartment and starting a part time job in addition to my casual one. Hoping that I can handle that. How are you? What have you been up to?
