Poem by: Devon N. Roberts
Thoughts keep buzzing and spinning
In and out of my mind like crashing waves
Just like the ocean does.
It’s hard to stay positive
When things seem tough in life-
They may go away
Or it COULD stay — But, for how long?
I would like to feel “strong”
Strong enough to throw negativity away
A word that shuts me down at times
‘Flip Zone’ of that- Positivity
Happy, now that I believe I can do what I want
Negativity, sadness and fear
Is what’s pushing me back
God, please bring me to happiness
The one I’m yearning for
Though I feel this ‘Flip Zone’ of mine
Enhanced with problems; arising everyday
Creating the inevitable —
I need patience
Strength; although I believe in the Almighty One
Without Him, my life is a sham.
Basically at the moment —
I’m going through my one and only ‘Flip Zone’.
