Poems and Poetry: Blow Dealt By Fate
Blow Dealt by Fate
Fear crashed in upon me like waves
God was the only raft for me to cling
To in this unfamiliar waters
How was I ever going to learn to swim
In an ocean of disappointment and failure?
I felt as if I had put on a crown of hot steel
For a moment I felt as if black eyes
Peering down from brooding clouds
Angrily on me
All that was left was the smoldering amber
Of the dying fire in me
My dignity lay at my feet
Despite the horrid circumstances and
The tragic blow dealt me by the hands of fate
I foresaw only good things after.
