My Drought Eviction by Shonah Milne Melton
Free poetry by Shonah Milne Melton..... inspirational.... uplifting.... likened to a tree... renew hope..... conviction
Be like a tree in times of drought....
Cast my roots deeper, seeking water out.
Stand strong, stand tall and reach for the sky,
Never give up amidst tempest’s outcry.
At times, challenges will permeate my universe,
It’s how I respond, bringing blessing or curse.
Will I wallow in pain, pity and fear?
Warding off light that could bring relief and cheer?
“No, no.” I cry, “Don’t give up, - don’t you dare,”
“Don’t you sink to the depths of dark drought despair!”
With resolve I send my roots creeping and crawling,
No longer sad, nor eyes a weeping and bawling.
For I’ll stand strong and tall amidst my affliction,
Resonant in my belief, I’ll prevent drought eviction!
