The Last Draw

I write, read, crochet, sing, and play musical instruments. A sucker for learning.

Poem #9

Often in life you'll experience a carousel of why's

One ticket to endless queries

That can only be concluded by an aloof reason

Sometimes you think everything's unfair

Like you submitted a thousand entries to a raffle

While the one who wins sent one meager ticket

It pains you

Making you feel hopeless and helpless

As a tree hanging by the roots on a steep cliff

Just remember

Although you felt defeated

Your God's last draw

Be patient

As long as you hold on to your ticket

In the end

He'll definitely draw yours
