MohawkValleyGirl https://mohawkvalleygirl.wordpress.com/ suggested I write another Sestina, the type of poem written yesterday for The National Poetry Month Scavenger Hunt. I like to take on challenges so here it is…
Where do I go from now until then
making the decisions for two
Living with someone yet living alone
Trying to remain positive despite the darkness
No one here is to blame
We work with the life we are handed.
From the beginning we are handed
to the one who has birthed us then
There is no one to blame
We came to the light from darkness
And we are no longer alone.
There have been times I have felt alone
But I am blessed with what I have been handed.
I live in the light and escape the darkness
I try to remember how it was then
When I was alone, before there were two
And there was no reason for blame.
When feeling down we seek a soul to blame
Because we are feeling so alone
We wish that there could be two
But we live with the life we are handed
Knowing that loneliness will be for then
And the now is coming out of darkness.
We will continue to have periods of darkness
We will look for the person to blame
We may not find anyone then
We will see that we are still alone
Because our life is what we are handed
And there may not always be two.
Bless the days when you are not one but two
Remember you are out of the darkness
You live this beautiful life you were handed.
There is no reason to look for blame
For you no longer feel alone
You hold onto these feelings until then.
For what we are handed is the hope for two
We then look to hope instead of darkness
For we are the ones to blame when we are alone.
