Turn Toward the Sun

When things are too difficult to

comprehend and life is a struggle

Be like sunflowers…

Always follow the sun

Life giving…

Life affirming…

Sun …

Feel the warmth on your face

Lift your head

Square your shoulders

And …

Smile

Struggle

We never know what is going on

in the lives around us

Just as they never know what is

going on in our lives

Everyone has their own

personal demons

Not always apparent

Yet …

There all the same

 

The old adage …

“What doesn’t kill us

makes us stronger”

applies to us all at

one time or another

Struggles are different

at different times in life

and come in varying

degrees of stress

 

Without the struggles

life would not be

nearly as interesting …

our stories would all

be the same …

Tired… Day 23 April PAD

Tired…

She was so tired…

Tired of the struggle…

Tired of the inequity…

Tired of being treated

as something other

than human

 

The bus doors open

She steps aboard

Looked down that

long aisle to the

back and thought

 

Enough…

 

Today is the day

I refuse to be

something I am

NOT…

 

I deserve the

Respect…

the option…

the RIGHT…

to sit in the front

section of this bus

to sit in any seat

I choose

 

And…

 

So it began…

Today’s prompt … write a historic poem.

*This poem was written in honor of and dedicated to Rosa Parks and her strength, dignity and pride for the Civil Rights of all people regardless of color, gender, or race. The bus seat was/is symbolic for the fight that continues to this day.
