The current year has been a struggle
for many people that I know.
Life has been massively changing
and adjustments had been very slow.
The heat of summer, it was warming
the cold that crept inside of me.
And still, it was not enough to help
give me calm and let me feel free.
So many times I have been lucky
to enjoy the sun, water, and a swim.
Without my generous, golden friend
life to me would have been grim.
As the year progresses past this summer
and slowly will become our fall.
I wish and hope for true improvement
for everyone out there, and y’all!
Lord,, thank you for sending us your angels
to every first-responder, cop, and firefighter
Dear Lord, I kneel, I pray, and beg you,
Please help our future be a ‘lil bit brighter.
As the seasons’ turn and autumn starts
where the heat wraps up and becomes mild
where the shine and bright turns into colorful
and the softest breezes become wild.
Let these colors of the fall be an omen
for us to wrap up the bad things of this year
to search and find the lost hope again.
It was never gone… it was just hidden behind the fear.
