A Poem by D S Rollins

Thinking too much isn't good..

You don't know what goes on in my mind 
The fact that I'm still here is a miracle.

It's all down to time.

2 years ago, my face was soaked in tears

My whole body, trembling with fear--

My first encounter facing death.

I still can't find anyone to open up to

I don't want to burden anyone

Yes, this is true.

If it weren't for God, I'd be off the rails

Doing who knows what

But the devil would have no way to prevail.

I feel like a child, lost in a shopping centre

Unfamiliar with what's going on around me

How can this be?

But I have this feeling, that someone above

Is guiding me everyday

With an unconditional love

This hole in my heart will eventually be filled.

Time has to pass.

This is only a taste of what's in my mind.

I just thank God

That I'm still alive.

Lost my mother 2 years ago, and I think about it here and there; my mind goes idle and it floats back to those times. In one of those moods...

I could not help the empathy within me, as I read through your poignant composition. This quotation also sprang to mind;

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality...” Martin Luther King Jr.

Unconditional love provides our heart and soul with the sustenance to grown out of our pain and anguish. Our sense of lost transforms into a cerebration of remembrance.

Thank you for sharing!

God bless

I have lost a lot of people including my daughter and I don't think the hole is ever filled but you do learn to carry on and of course just being alive is a gift from God which we should all be grateful for. I thought this reached out and grabbed the reader. Excellent!

I am a writer. My heart and soul are in the words I write down. I've had this issue where I can never express myself fully in words, I write to express what my mouth cannot. It's freedom. I l.. more..
