Poem: Before I Go

Before I Go

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Life has often been unkind to me
Giving me the best of its worst
Choosing me last to receive its peace
But picking me first to fight its wars

Forgetting to shield me when the rain fell its hardest
And leaving me outside when the nights felt their coldest
The little hope of joy it gave me
Was overshadowed by grief’s repeated pain

 Left with many unanswered prayers
And faith’s light dimming quickly
The day came where I just wanted to give up

 When loneliness was my only friend
And the thought of running away seemed to be my only escape
I gave hope one last chance

 Spreading forth my sore wings towards Heaven’s direction
I asked God to save me
And bless me with a new day
So that I may live
So that I may smile
And leave behind those days
That had me wish I was lost and could never be found
