Champion’s Respite

Battle weary soul
tired 
so so tired
pretending life is good
when blackness pervades
consuming 
devouring 
life as I understand it.
Time has come
to cast off the  blinders
to cast off expectations of others.
Climb that mountain
reach on high
deep breath
release
gone are the bad
in with the good.
Done so well
protected for so long
Paladin of might
Scourge of the black night
hunting
killing
slaying dreaded beasts
before they can release
poison
seeping into body
oozing into pores
consuming…..
No!
Fight
strong
the tide has turned
blackness pushed back
diligent Knight
I thank thee
for all the years
in which you held my life.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
