If I could sing about a time when I experienced the kind of success I think you are talking about in today’s poetry prompt, I would. But I don’t feel much like singing today. Instead, I am going to simply celebrate the fact that I got through this small day by posting today’s poem on success then going to have a glass of wine and read something beautiful.
All my love,
By Jesi Scott
Not zipping through
The digital wires to zap
That one person who deserves
A little first-person Karma justice
But rather breathing in deeply and
Remembering that they deserve kindness
And compassion despite what you may think.
Other days, success is simply getting through
The day without wanting to ball yourself
Up and crawl back into that small dark
Space inside, to not hide but rather
To take a breath and face the pain
And remember that rainbows
Only grace the sky once the
Sun shows its face from
Behind the clouds.
