A Haiku for a New dawn…

Yesterday, YOU broke
My wild, frantic grab for hope.
But I did not quit.

Yesterday the skies
Seemed bleak, left gloom, made me cry.
I can smile again.

Yesterday brought tears
Shattered faith, left me in fear.
But it’s over now.

Yesterday my feet,
Walked down roads despoiled by filth
I am stronger now.

Today, the sun peeked
Through dross piled high at my feet.
I can hope again.

That Tomorrow comes,
And with it flows hope, new songs.
I can laugh again

  1. Aww, Uncle DB, so refreshing. It reminds me of the book of psalm. Come o, why do all all your works of poetry remind me of the bible, abi I should add bishop to your list of titles ni?


  2. @ Justdoyin.. Thanks……That's my favorite part too… Hinting of a tiny bit of hope…@blogoratti — Thanks man….. We can sing again!@BSNC — Yes o! Amen to that too..@Kafo — LOL.. Perhaps, I'm still trying to find that unique blend of functionality and aesthetics… Thanks!@Nefertiti — Ah.. Book of Psalm? Perhaps its because most of these were started a long time ago and are only just being completed, so I get to have two widely differing views at the end than at the beginning… BIshop?? Nah.. I'm so far from being a Bishop o.. At least I know that..


  3. I can smile again, Its over now. I am stronger now, I can hope again. I did not quit…..beautiful piece.on another note…Danny, Danny, Danny. How many times I call you?
