Poetry from Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo Blog

The pen paints the souls longing
In jewel tones.
The darkness veils the stars,
Yet their Light shines unseen,
But not unfelt
An ember of gold
In the shadows.
Now you remind us
To count all our blessings,
Holding them dear
For the little while.
You remind us too
That chivalry survives,
And the courage to laugh
In the face of tragedy.
Then you remind us
That friendship is precious
A gift to be cherished
And never lost.
I am reminded
That life has its purpose
And our purpose in life
Is to Live it.

Wonder Why

Pick yourself up

reach for the stars

treat your scars

by reaching for the stars.

Look at the clouds in the sky.

Think on other things

like homelessness and hunger.

Think on things that make you wonder.

Put your mind asunder.

Pick yourself up

reach for the stars

treat your scars

by reaching for the stars.

Wipe the tears from your eyes.

Look at the clouds in the sky

and wonder why

there are people who need clean water to drink.

They don’t even have a sink.

Their clothes are worn and tattered.

Their family is scattered

searching for a way to make life better.

Pick yourself up

reach for the stars

treat your scars

by reaching for the stars.

Wipe the tears from their eyes

by treating their thirst and hunger.

Look at the clouds in the sky

and wonder why

you don’t hear their cry.
