A life flickers in the balance

February 12, 2019

Why me?

A cruel troubled world.

I question the worth of living.


Then a Butterfly struggles,

with a broken wing.

Precious life, flickers in the balance.

Chrysalis cracked,

from a broken home;

new life, may be a poison chalice.


Assess my pity,

best be thankful now.

So grateful for another chance.

A fragile world,

we need be aware;

forget my selfish, lonely stance.


As the truth we seek,

is found in the very meek;

if we listen, to every subtle sound.

My smile returns,

another lesson learned.

Make the most, of what comes around.
