Bee’s Poem of the Day: Hope

Hello out there, all you lovely people of the blogosphere. I want to remind you that you rock! No matter which challenge you are facing you’ll be able to overcome it. I believe in you!

Today I share a part of a post I wrote in 2018 and it is about a song that has given me hope in difficult times. This is what I wrote back then:

“I have written several poems that are called hope. This one was inspired by an artist I have listened to a couple of years ago. Her name is Gila Antara and she has made Native American inspired music. One of my favourites is and was β€œWe are the Power”. It was a mantra of mine in a very difficult time and it gave me the power to move on and change. So I changed the words of the song from

Gila Antara ~ β€œWe Are The Power”

We are the power in everyone
We are the dance of the moon and the sun
We are the hope that will never hide
We are the turning of the tide!

into an acrostic poem

 

HOPE
WE so alive.
ARE healing from
THE wounds given.
HOPE so alive.
THAT dances and stands.
WILL be strong and
NEVER fall or
HIDE.
I know for sure that I am through the worst when I am able again to write about hope.”
Today this song is even more a mantra of mine because I believe that we, the people, will be the change for better no matter how powerful politicians and corporations seem to be. In this sense
Love & rage my friends!

Fuck fuck!

ANXIETY WOKE US UP! DAMN! DAMN DAMN DAMN!
NOW WE WONT BE ABLE TO FALL BACK TO SLEEP AGAIN!
OMG I AM NOT HAPPY!
MY HANDS ARE SHAKING SO BAD THAT I CAN BARELY TYPE THIS! WELL SHIT!
MY CHEST FEELS SO TIGHT!
MY HEART IS POUNDING!
AND ITS ONLY MIDNIGHT! A WHOLE NIGHT OF THIS? OMG! I CANNOT DEAL!
WE DIDNT HAVE A NIGHTMARE, AT LEAST NOT THAT I AM AWARE OF!
SO WHY?
OMG!
