Altered View

Feeling locked up, and so stuck,
trying not to press my luck.
All I do, is done in vain,
accustomed to feeling pain.
Everyday, another chore,
have no strength left to keep score.
Reading thoughts that often shift,
leaves no room for hopes to lift.

Faith arises as hopes lift,
feel vibrations cause a shift.
So relieved, no need for scores,
happiness conquers my chores.
Inner light clears away pain,
as love travels through my veins.
Knowing we make our own luck,
so no one is ever stuck.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. I sat for hours writing 2 poems. Its still not as striking as yours.
    What’s the secret, you have to tell me?
    Compared to you i am just an amateur.

    How to write a poem like Grace does? I will go mad then write on poem a thousand times over just to match your skill against mine.

    Wanted to make you laugh. I am not even funny.

    Keep up the good work. In a 100 years i will be on your level. Just maybe. πŸ‘πŸ€£ Laughing at my silliness.

    1. Thanks so much, Marvin. That is very kind of you but my advice is to not try to write like anyone else. Just write as it comes naturally for you. Always be true to yourself and you will attract the right people. πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•

  2. This is so beautiful poem. Boosts me up and raise my self esteem ❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️

  3. I loved the format of this poem discarding points one by one raised in the first stanza. Beautifully written, Grace πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  4. Such a great poem Grace!
