Another One

By BG

I just had to write another one
No need to end on a bad note
I have plenty of reasons to smile
I’ve learned plenty of ways to cope
I love to laugh and chill
I love to work and play
God is my savior
To Him, I pray

My family is strong
My friends are well
I am listening to songs
Right here in my cell
So I appreciate what I used to overlook
This is just a page of a chapter of a story in my book
To you I thank for sending a postcard my way
Like your postcard made mine,
I hope this poem makes your day

  1. This poem did make my day! Thank you for writing it! It is good to have hope. I love the line “this is just a page of a chapter of a story in my book”–really nice.

    My favorite lines of your poem were:
    “I am listening to songs
    Right here in my cell
    So I appreciate what I used to overlook
    This is just a page of a chapter of a story in my book”
    I could feel your presence so strongly through your words, which is one of the most important things a poem do, I think. I also loved the way these lines reverberate beyond the small space of the cell–first with the music (which can’t be caged) and the with the line “This is just a page of a chapter of a story in my book”–it expands out, grows larger, from page, to chapter, to story, to book.
