Life: Refresh and Renew. Poems x 2.

Updated on February 28, 2012

life goes on

minute by minute

some days are a draw

some days you win it.


life goes on

hour by hour

some days are smiles

some days have sorrows.


life goes on

day by day

some days we are benched

some days we get to play.


life goes on

it has its ups and downs

the near misses and the pretty crowns

the touch of a hand or a slap on the face

life goes on in this thing called the human race.


©LMY 9.6.05

I let the rain soak through my body

the tears fell down my face as I cried

feeling the love and the power flow through me

I looked towards the heavens and I sighed.


The stress of the world and all around me

melted and faded away

in this moment, nothing could touch me and tear at my heart

as the droplets washed over me as I swayed.


The sweet little things and the days of my youth

came back to me in a flash and I was there

running through fields and laughing with all of my heart

to me life was wonderful and light and as golden as my hair.


Time keeps on ticking and it changes things

and sometimes our lives get cloudy and gray

but when I'm feeling hurt and the coldness of the world

I stand outside, my face to the stars, and let my cares wash away with the rain.


The cruelness and bad days

puddle and float at my feet

The rude people and ugly faces flow down the hill

and I wave and blow kisses as they leave.


The rain has now stopped and I look to the sky

the stars seem to twinkle and shine just for me

I'm happy and fresh and I smile to the world

in my squeaky clean body, the good is all that I see.

      It's about time you published a new one; I needed my poetry fix. :) Beautiful work as I have come to expect from you. Love the photos too. By the way, I mentioned you in one of my hubs a few days back...just a small thank you!

      WOW, this is something. I love your poetry, but for some reason i feel something is wrong, like you are under great stress or pressure my friend . I feel pain from within. Now I know how my poetry affects others , it feels so strange. I will pray for you.

      Michael, I usually let things weigh me down when they shouldn't. I am a worrier so that's what you're probably picking up on. Everything is fine and I'm back with a fresh new set of 30/30 starting with this one! Thank you very much for the encouragement!

      Loved this poem. I have not read poems since high school because I was not into poetry. Have just started to read them again, because of hubpages, your poems are lovely.
