The Way! - Poem by Natalie Ramos

POEM: THE WAY!
WRITTEN BY NRSJR 1-24-2016 @ 2: 10AM - 2: 29AM


I LOOKED UP TO THE HEAVENS AND WHAT DID I SEE,
FOUR BEAUTIFUL ANGELS STARING DOWN AT ME,
ONE HAD A LIST OF THE THINGS I HAD DONE,
THE OTHER IN HER HAND,
EVERYTHING I TRIED THAT WENT WRONG,
THE THIRD KEPT MEMORIES OF THE THINGS OF MY PASS,
THE OTHER KEPT LOOKING, AS IF THROUGH A BROKEN GLASS,
WHAT HAS CAUGHT HER EYES, OH HOW I WILL LOVE TO KNOW,
BUT SOMEWHERE DEEP INSIDE, HER FACIAL EXPRESSION TOLD ME NO,
A TEARDROP QUICKLY FILLED HER BIG BLUE EYES,
TO SEE AN ANGEL CRY TO ME WAS A HUGE SURPRISE,
HAS MY LIFE BEEN SO BAD, WHY WAS SHE SO SAD,
DID I LET HER DOWN, DID I MAKE HER MAD,
I KNOW I AM NOT PERFECT AND I NEVER TRIED TO BE,
SO WHY ARE THESE ANGELS LOOKING DOWN ON ME,
THE FIRST THREE COULD PASS,
BECAUSE THEY SHOWED ME WHAT WAS WRONG,
BUT THE LAST ONE KEPT LOOKING AND TELLING ME TO BE STRONG,
THE BROKEN GLASS FELL AND SLOWLY DRIFTED AWAY,
OH HOW I WISH MY FAULTS AND PAINS WOULD'NT STRAY,
SHE POINTED TO THE LEFT WHERE A BUBBLE HAD APPEARED,
AND TOLD ME TO LOOK AT THE THINGS I ONCE FEARED,
BEING LONELY WAS ONE, FINDING LOVE WAS ANOTHER,
AND MOST OF ALL FAILING AT BEING A SINGLE MOTHER,
NOW MY HEART GOT SUNKEN AND FELL REALLY ILL,
BUT THERE WAS A FEW MORE THINGS SHE HAD TO SHOW ME STILL,
SO I CLOSED MY EYES AND DRIFTED OFF TO SLEEP,
BECAUSE I KNEW WHEN I WAKE UP I WAS IN FOR A TREAT,
A NEW DAY HAD DAWN HAPPINESS WAS LURKING BY,
I NO LONGER FELT LONELY, FRAGILE OR SAD,
SOMETIMES WE NEED SOMEONE TO SHOW US THE WAY,
AND THAT'S WHAT MY FOUR ANGELS DID EARLIER THAT DAY,
NOW IS UP TO ME TO GO OUT MAKE ALL MY DREAMS COME TRUE,
I HAD MY GUIDANCE SO WHAT ABOUT YOU!
