I do see the light these days after a gruesome period of my life. So much darkness and despair and hardships I had been through over the past years until I was granted the light's hand by my aunt who sponsored my studies. She was not going to let my brain go to waste because of money. And now after 3 years I'm going to graduate and it has brought so much happiness to my mother and brother who were my rock always. I'm sure my father would be smiling up there too. I truly appreciate the light after all the darkness I have been through. Anyway I wanted to share the good news to you all the Mirakee family. Many of you that wrote beautiful poems resonated within me that gave the support I needed for the past few months. So thank you ❤. And now to start my new journey
Bitter. I know, I know. But its how most of us feel when the one we love so much turns out wrong for us in the end that most of us just seem lost and hopeless. Some of us struggle to find our love back and some of us give up. And then we wonder if the Gods like what they see. It's just my cynical interpretation.
Edit: I made a few adjustments to correct grammar. sorry
Hey magnificent Mirakeeans!! Happy Friday! With the weekend upon us, it seems like as good a time as any to promote self-love, eh? But then again, when isn't it the perfect time to do that, right? So, shoot me your 7 piece self-love word story (in English please), in the comment section, and I'll happily add it as soon as I'm able. As for the meaning of mine, it's intended to convey a healthy sense of self-preservation. If we truly love and respect our own self, we can then love and respect all others. ♥️ Blessings, Carolyn
THE CALLING by Carolyn Glackin Cataclysmic, catastrophic Metaphysics, soul bionic Artificial, feigned and fused Simulated, truth abused Opportunists, feckless charmers Ne'er-do-wells And harmful harmers A dime a dozen, devil may care A social gracer's savoir faire Ruthless rulings herd the sheep Awakened ones no longer sleep Thoughts gone crazy World gone wild We've spared the rod But can we save the child? Dramatic dramas, role reversal Time for action, no dress rehearsal The humble, thwarted The meek, mistreated The road to righteousness, deleted Skies now darkened Thoughts now dimmed The faithful cling to psalms and hymns Annihilation, mass destruction Welcome to the grand induction Harried hearts and weary minds Fearful as the path unwinds Angelic souls, random kindness All the rest, preferring blindness Nations crumbling, Gaia grieving Stoic soldiers, disbelieving Iniquitous dens, housing heathens You've heard my rhymes Y'all want the reasons? The so-called superior, lauded elite Living in mansions, ain't life sweet? Using dollars as weapons And jewels as tools Trying to trap us Thinking we'll play the fools Who's to blame though? Surely not Satan! Humans did this, so don't be hatin' Who's ready to fix it? Who's ready to rise? Awaken, oh brethren! Seek the truth through the lies! I know it's alarming I know it's unreal 'Cause see, you're all used to hurtin' But are y'all ready to heal? The job's monumental We're talking epic proportions But it's time to start changing All these social distortions We need all able bodies So please answer the call It's time we joined hands All for one, one for all Together, we got this! We're our own salvation So let's get this thing done Save every place, every nation And as hard to believe As this next sentence seems When we're done with all that We'll build the world of our dreams A world based on fairness Regardless of races Accepting of color Loving all faces Where genders are equal Income paid fairly No more social elites Oh gee, we'll miss them dearly I'm 'bout to wrap this thing up now Enough rhymin' and schemin' Who's ready? Who's with me? Let's manifest what we're dreamin' The present is daunting But the future stands bright I've spoken enough now Peace out y'all. Good night. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 7/12/2019

HAVE YOU HEARD? by Carolyn Glackin Mumbo jumbo Fiddle faddle Words that make Bad moods skedaddle Silly sayings So amusing Some are goofy Some, confusing Jesting, joshing Holy smoking Jeez Louise! So thought provoking! Or how about A few tongue twisters? They're sure to please Your bros and sisters! Riotous, rollicking Wild uproars Watch and wait As they clamor for more! Melodious musings To soothe the mind To bring on peace As you unwind You can say them With a friend Try and use them Without end Me? I'm just This poem's Narrator See you later Alligator!
