For one good reason, I turned around,
The threat gripped my heart as it sound,
The fear that I’d fell off on the ground,
The answers to my reality which were never found.
I embraced my life the way it was,
For one good reason, I wanted to break the laws,
I kept breathing until a silent pause,
Misery swept away and so did my clause.
For one good reason, I never looked away,
The threat that night would darken my life stayed,
The fear trembled me that I’d never see sun the next day,
The key to misery clutched the period of my decay.
I lifted myself for one last time,
I risked my life ahead of crime,
While preparing for that one last climb,
I realized my heart chimed.
For one good reason, I lived my life,
I laughed, chuckled and genuinely smiled,
I slashed my wrist to let the dead blood cells ooze the agony,
The fears and threats were driven away by my mind’s symphony.
Since that day, I lived my life to the extreme,
Personified my choices to challenge my self esteem,
I joined every single dot to dream my life’s theme,
Cause’ for one more time, my soul beamed.
I can identify with all of this and can feel the pangs of discontent I see here as well I feel it in my life. your piece certainly ends on an upbeat swing. nicely done !!
Yeah, I think we all went through the ups and downs and we’d categorize them in our very own way – some would write up a poetry while others would just bury their realities deep down in their chest 🙂
Thank you for dropping by Don, hope everything is good with you and your life 🙂
For one good reason you wrote this.
You hung your head due to the dark
Then when you lifted it up
You realised there was a joyous spark
For one good reason, I am smiling… Thank you for dropping by. Hope everything is good at your end 🙂

Yeah, my mum keeps updating me at times – I know it is miserable! I hope that peace embraces the place as soon as possible! (Amen)
good to see you again Naima! hope u are fine
Always good to hear from you 🙂 Hope everything is good on your side too 🙂
Good to hear from you Naima. Hope you are now settled in with your studies at your UK university.
England is treating me good – studies aren’t really a problem cause I know the definition of hard-work. England never fails to surprise me and that’s the beauty of it all 🙂
The sun shines right on your head when ya least expect it and it begins to pour when ya are walking back home – life seems less miserable and ya ought to learn “Cherish every moment” and that’s what I am doing for now 🙂
Thank you for asking 🙂
The wonder of British weather 🙂
