A Happy Poem

I have so many notebooks of writes,

so many personal and dark

So much has changed in this past

year, like someone set off a spark


Although I have shared some sadness

and hurt with you all

I no longer feel that heavy burden

nor feel like I'm facing a brick wall


I was encouraged by someone to write

as often as I could--that eased my pain

Now I smile and laugh a lot more  

and I can easily see my gains


I'll look back to my dark poetry

to help me reflect and grow

Who knows? Someday I might go back there

But right now I'm happier than you know

      Thanks Bill! Much appreciated!

    • Michael Edwards

      Great uplifting write - now how about writing a whimsical piece - say a limerick or something similar - what is life without a smile?

      • Christina8

        I will look into that! Thanks for the suggestion!

        A fine write C. Go back to the dark readings if you wish, if it helps any time. I would probably prefer non-dark readings myself.

        • Christina8

          Nope, I'm gonna try happy poems for a while!

        • Laura

          I hope you’ll never go back to the dark ones...
          but, as you said,
          it’s a good reminder of what
          you have now!
          Looking back makes us appreciate
          what we have now!
          A great write!
          Thank you for sharing!

                      • FredPeyer

                        Me too I am happy for you, Christina! If writing makes you happy and helps ease your burden, that is so much better than what other people use, such as alcohol, uppers, etc.
                        I actually had a smile on my face when reading your poem! Which goes to show, you are not only making yourself happier, you are spreading that happiness around!

                        • Christina8

                          Fred, thank you so much, that in turn made ME smile! I really appreciate your kind words. More than you know! Thanks again!---Christina

                          • Christina8

                            Thanks Gold, I will keep that thought in mind! :-)
