Pinholes Sometimes Lead To Sunshine

Sometimes we miss the little things while looking for the bigger things...

I am meek

Am I weak?

*

Walking this world

Moss under my feet

Eyes that don't see

Is nothing complete?

*

Long lost comfort

Slingshot from my seat

Dragged through the mud

Fragmented and beat

*

Empty homestead

Am I obsolete?

Darkened shadow

No warmth for cold feet

*

I am nothing

Crying in defeat

Calling for mom

Skidding on the street

*

Folding sundown

Looking for retreat

Need protection

I'm here don't delete

*

I cannot see it

But, it's gleaming through a pinhole

About the Creator

Rick Henry

Writing is a distraction for me. It takes me to places unknown that fulfill my need for intellectual stimulus, emotional release, and a soothing of the breaks and bruises of the day.
