It’s 3am
Just can’t sleep
All night long

Contemplating
Imagining
My fate of yesterday
It’s been pretty grim
Now stressing my mind
About what tomorrow holds
Questions flitter and float about
Unanswered in the quiet night

And sailed away

Like a blank piece of canvas
I’m an artist afraid to draw
I hear the shrill sound
The siren of an ambulance

The stillness of the night

  1. I really liked this and the idea of painting our future! I think I need to add in some more colors myself! God bless you and thanks for sharing this!

  2. Thanks for this courageous post. Be well.

  3. I am glad that you follow Selasie, Patti! She does write well and inspiring prose and songs.

    • Good morning Liz,

      I found Selasie through you. I follow two or three of your recommendations because they are food for my soul.
      Hope you have a great day.

      Ciao,
      Patti

  4. For a minute, I thought you were sick? Is this person writing this fighting a disease or something? I hope she is hopeful.

    • Hi,
      Hope you are fine. No, I am not sick, but I always take the month of December to wind down and the month of January in the New Year to do my own planning so that I know in which direction I am headed.

      This poem is from a woman who is very healthy. She writes poems of hope, about staying persistent, and never giving up that greatly encourage me.

      Hope you have a prosperous New Year and receive many readers for your blog and thank you for inquiring about me.
      Ciao,
      Patricia

  5. Thanks for reblogging that Patricia, it was beautiful. I let her know too.

    • Hi Bro,

      It was indeed beautiful. I found her through Liz. She featured her on one of her blog postings. Since then, I have been a fan of Selasie. She is simply wonderful.

      Ciao,
      Patti
