Burden of the past carried onto the future
Makes future, a misadventure.

Shed the burden, shed the past
Create new hope, a beacon of light.

This is thy moment, this is thy juncture.
The one you ought to capture and nurture.

Craft it. Build it. Hone it.
Make thy future an exciting adventure.

Life’s a Ladder

Crown’s atop
Bottom’s somber

Each step an action
Dictated by decision

Sometimes a step up
Sometimes a step down

Check you compass
Correct your course

Regardless of what’s going on
Keep on keeping on

I wrote this poem, back on May 23, 2019. Driving to work, I noticed a truck with ladder mounted on it. That ladder inspired this poem.

The Beggar on the Street

Beggar on the street, I paid no heed.
Walked my merry way, thinking of my day.

Her smile I missed, request I dismissed.
Day was busy, end came hasty.

Beggar on the street, I paid slight heed.
Still she sat, a captivating sight.

I asked her the reason, it was simply life’s season.
Money was not her need, work it was indeed.

Respect is what she earned, work is what I offered.
Beggar on the street, no longer exists.

By the way, this is not a real story. Just a poetry, I wrote this back on January 24, 2020.
