A Better Chance

In the gentle midnight hour

I shall find you by my side.

The self of altered state

to bring comfort as my guide.

Lead me not into the fire

nor beside the rising tide.

But to the distant evermore

where sleep comes easy in the night.

Where trains pass through the moment

leaving sounds of childhood.

Where confidence comes easy

and impossible is could.

Make a path into my future

lined with flowers, herbs, and cover.

Bring a place into my life;

to become a better Daughter,

Sister, Mother, Friend, and Lover.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.

Cindy, Thank you for the honor of selecting myself along with some other powerhouse writers to provide our comments/feelings about your poem. IT IS GREAT! Your imagery is incredible. Everything was so vividly life like. Your ending where you express you wants was very touching. You have that ability to reach people and touch them. Thank you also for lightening the scary and ominous nighttime sky. I hope you will surround people like me with more of your magic. Thank you again for sharing your gift.
