Day 8: Finding Hope in Unmet Expectations – Truth

Faith Friendships Grace Poetry

//I know this is true.

We do not exist for ourselves. We exist for one another.
When the earth begins to peel off the layers of our needs
God is there, fruitful and inspired.

I know this is true that all the earth is here for me
her silken fingers pointed toward the heavens
where angels adore the majesty and wonder of all

Our bodies were made to hold the truth
like vessels of transport from one generation to the next
You are a truth, amiga. Your existence is mighty resistance.

I know this is true.//


Friend, this is Day 8 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 TRUTH.
