A Smile That Broke The Frown  


In solitude I contemplate
What I'm just about to do.
I take the time, appreciate
Force myself to see it through.

The empty hand too scared
the grasping hand too weak.
The strength to be prepared
for the foolishness we speak.

Kindly words and helping hand
bring the courage that I need.
Peace from one who understands
and the will to pay him heed.

Stop a while and look beyond
Fear once beaten is opportunity.
To talk a while and seal a bond
To smile and laugh so easily.

A thank you for this testing
this gauntlet you flung down.
This message than I'm sending
of a smile that broke the frown.

Astounded by the effortlessness.
Elation in a well made choice.
How to make just words express
A gentle soul and liquid voice.

Wow
I have been going down the list, reading your poems, and I have loved every single one. Your words have a life of their own, and flow together so perfectly. I can tell that you put a lot of work into your writing, though I think the magic is that you put yourself into your poems. Your poems are so unique and thought-provoking... I am officially hooked and I look forward to reading much much more!

You have a wonderful way in composing your words to bring out such a beautiful write.
every word flows so smoothly and adds to the other. Your talent in writing is one of the best that I have seen here at Writers Network. You are a writer, that others under you should look up too, for you are a guide to new writers taking hold of the pen.

Spotlight Worthy For Sure,

Oh Wow KP am so glad you liked it.
When I wrote this, I wanted it to come out the way it felt and express the importance too. Sometimes none of that comes over in a write does it. It probably still doesn't but I tried
Thank you so much for your perfectly lovely comments here and I truly feel the honour is all mine to know you.
Your biggest fan Kassie
