Sumthin Sinister, Part 2

I got the C
but it don’t got me
scarred and scared
but burdens shared
are half the weight
yet sometimes late
at night I wake
and breathe and take
a moment to give
a prayer to live
and strength to cope
to a god I hope
believes as much in me
as I in He {or She}


Note: Sumthin Sinister, Part 1 is here.

This piece is part of dVerse Poets Open Link Night.

    In those difficult times we do hope that something out there believes enough in us so we may continue to exist…or that our loved one may continue to exist. My husband had the C, but it didn’t get him.

    Nice sound in this. Thank you for sharing.

    A nice prayerful rhyme.

    I clicked on the link and read the first part. There is so much depth to both of them. I hope your sister is doing better.

    Draws a sympathetic hmmm… from me, having woken and said my prayers too.

    burdens shared
    are half the weight.. this is so true..and alone the knowledge there is someone out there who carries with us can ease the burden so much

    I really like the rhyme here. It is very progressive and dynamic. It helps keep a solid rhythm and really creates the optimistic voice I think you were after. Great poem!
