Joy can be felt because of experiencing pain

For so many years I felt joy at my fingertips

Almost grasped as it slipped away

I look at my son and feel happy

I play with my son and feel happy

Lost in a confusion of what is wrong?

Annoyed with the world

Irritated for no reason or every reason

Still trying to hold on to hope

Hope for something better

Looking around there are people who cope better

Feeling like something isn’t right, but what?

The rain brings happiness

Is it because everything else is now drenched too?

I have had enough!

I ask for help

I am on the mend

Sadness felt for all the years I suffered

Hope for something new

Changing everything I see

I can see clear now

Elizabeth Williams About Elizabeth Williams

I am a single mother and a full time student at Saint Martin's University majoring in Accounting. Most of my time is spent studying, parenting, doing house work and Tae Kwon Do with my six year old son.
I have been writing poetry as a creative outlet since my young teen years. I also performed ballet and jazz for ten years and played the trombone for 5 while growing up. My music tastes are very eclectic. I enjoy writing in free verse with metaphors. This blog is the first public show of my work.
I am also inspired to take amateur pictures of nature and family. Some of these are posted with some of my poetry. I hope to inspire people and touch them with my words.
