A road well travelled…..

I lost my faith
I lost my say
I found myself
along the way.

Along the way
I walked, I skipped
I fell and bruised
my heart, my feet.

My heart, my feet,
my house, my chi
I grow, I feel
alive beneath.

Alive beneath
these clothes of steel
I force my eyes
to breathe surreal.

To breathe surreal
A world insane
Strength in my name
I feel no pain.

I feel no pain
I’ve all to gain
my world I dream
a light within.

A light within
a sign of peace
I’m reaching for
mankind supreme.

I lost my faith
along the way
my heart, my feet, 
alive beneath.

To breathe surreal, 
I feel no pain
a light within
mankind supreme.

I was trying SO HARD to get the “2:21” time stamp! Face palm. Today is February 21, 2021 or 21.2.21 if you use the English date format. I hit the publish button and saw that it was “2.22”. I can live with that. I do love me some numerology! I’ll get my back to my day now, enjoy yours…….until next time!

    1. Oh yes!! From before and around Home Office days. I have a whole book, I’m only now starting to realise it…slowly. Just followed your blog now. I wondered why I was getting yours. Thank you ❤️


  1. I like this poem the best thus far Titi. But then again, I haven’t read all your master pieces. I’m glad you survived the brutal cold front we encountered almost a week ago.

    1. Thanks Trisha!!! I’m publishing them one at a time, “as it moves me”. I’ll be redesigning my blog so it’s easier to pick the categories. It’s crazy how Texas is back to sunny now, like the snow storm never happened!
