Day 9: Finding Hope in Unmet Expectations – Plan

Faith Grace Poetry

//For I know the plans I have for you.

Perfect brick angles form firm foundation
ampollas– blisters blooming beneath bare feet
Laid out, inviting the journey

Plans to prosper you and not harm you,

Carefully threaded royalty into your garments
purple stitches form a protective layer of clothes
near the basin where He washed your feet

Plans to give you a hope and a future.


Friend, this is Day 9 of a series of posts for the month of October. I’m joining Kate Motaung over at Five Minute Friday for the yearly Write 31 Days challenge. Above is what I wrote in 5 minutes.

My topic is “Finding Hope in Unmet Expectations” because that’s what my book is about as well. On Fridays, I will write you a poem. Each day has a different word prompt. I hope you enjoy.

Today’s word prompt is PLAN.
