Just A Second..

Just A Second..

A Poem by Cat

Like all my poems.. This one is from the heart..


Your sitting in the back of your mom's car. Back against the cool window. Looking out the rear-view mirror. The familiar sent of Cherry Blossom perfume and Mom and Nana's cigarette smoke in the air. Headphones in ears listening to the sounds of 'Pass Slowly- Seether'. Your dressed up, even in heels. You can't remember the last time you felt calm, happy. Felt anything. An overwhelming sense of calm comes over. You can't breathe at a normal rate. Just for a second you say a prayer...


God I know I might not talk as much,


or how I should.


I know that not being taught isn't an excuse


but I need you, God.


This isn't working.


I don't know what is going on.


I feel nothing.


If you could just help me with what I need,


I promise


I will do as I should.


I'll be good.


God, can you do me one more favor?


Can you please forgive everyone's sins


let them go to heaven.


Help them find you


as I have.


Everyone needs hope.
