Where do I start?
There've been days I wish there weren't
And weeks I'd love to live again
Months of turmoil and hurt
Years of joy, even in rain
Times of friendship and fun
With those I'd like to see once more
And periods of painful heartbreak
When my soul felt weary and sore
Dear life I've learned to take
Each day just as it comes
To pray I'll come through unscathed
With the help of Jesus the son
My advice to anyone in pain
Is to hang in there until there's change
To ask for help and admit your need
Things will change, take my lead
This poem was written for the poetry jam challenge entitled "best sellers"
We were asked to pick a book from the New York Times bestseller list and write a poem with the same title.
My choice was:
DEAR LIFE, by Alice Munro. (Knopf.) A new collection of stories, some “autobiographical in feeling.” number 15 in the New York Times bestseller list for hardback fiction.
I can't wait to see what everyone else writes.
