Poetry: A Year Ago Today

Here's my contribution to One Shot Wednesday.   


A year ago today
Didn't expect to feel this way
Forlorn and ashamed
No one else to blame

A year ago today
Why did it end that way
Lies and deceit
No thoughts of who would weep

A year ago today
No one standing in my way
Hearts trampled in my wake
Their give, to my take

A year ago today
Gave my old life away
Too late to explain
My excuses, no ones gain

A year ago today
A new life on its way
His love will find a way
To guide me through this day

Coming up...Simply Delish Saturday...do you have your recipes prepared?

So uplifting. Everyone needs to realize that we have the ability to turn any thing around, change, choose another road. Now is always the fork in the road. Thanks,

Love is like a bad penny - it always keeps turning up - er, except that it's not bad. Yeah, that too.

Are any of us in the place we thought we would be in the past? Thanks for reading and commenting on my poem. Hope your week goes well.

The past is a prologue, when we decide to change, a new chapter(s) opens...new journeys begin. Fold the map of remembrance and create another, even better one. Thanks for stopping by.

PattiKen said...

Very intriguing poem, KB. But from the exchange between you and Whitesnake, it sounds as if it all came out well in the end. Nice One Shot.
