Hope


I am a believer
I seek peace in the palsy
I seek grace in the grime
I seek essence in emptiness.

I live.
And I breathe.
So I hope.

I was waiting for a fortune cookie,
directly from heaven and
I received one, but a blank note.
I realize
It’s time perhaps
to wild my tame heart.
Time is rushing past my window
like white snow flakes.
speck by speck, night by day
I gain guts
to achieve
what the world say I cant!
Now, I either find my way or make one.

I totally love this poem. It is my favorite of yours so far! I love your qaiting for a fortune cookie from Heaven. I REALLY love "it's time to wild my tame heart". Oh yes it is!!!!!! And I love "time is rushing past my window like white snowfalkes." And "I either find my way or make one." This is the journey. Wow. A great write! More, please!

"Time is rushing past my window
like white snow flakes.
speck by speck, night by day" - That speaks volumes to my soul...yumm...I can picture this feeling all too well. Nice take. Check out my post on the prompt if you can.

Unique descriptive style that is a breath of freshness and works so well...you speak what I wish to convey, so perfectly differently.
