Homemade

dversepoets I am who I am, but tomorrow, who knows? Posted by

I am
crafted of
abundance and loss.

I am
content and restless
shades of grey
in swirls of black and white.

I was
born in the twentieth century
will die
in the twenty-first

but until then

I’ll live
to see
more wonders and woes.

  1. I love the “crafted of abundance and loss”. Indeed we are all shades of contracditions, and with more blessings, we will see to see more wonders and woes. That’s life, smiles.

  7. Your words speak of your life so far, and into the near future. The past is comprised of lessons. The now is our statement on those things learned. The future? We’ll find out soon enough, Debi! Good write!

  14. Homemade is much the best. All of us are contradictions – plenty, loss, gain, growth, and finally death in the 21st century. But until then….
