Ken Donaldson, Independence Day Poem for You
My Independence Day Poem…just for YOU!!
Sometimes I’m happy…..sometimes so sad
And times of bliss and sometimes just damn mad
I jump for joy….I’m wretched in pain
I have ecstatic moments and times of shame
I’m courageous at times and at times, I fear
I feel so sure….and doubt seems so near
An elated tear and a tear of grief
Confidence abounds, yet fear finds no relief
This is the package of this here life
From the pinnacle of joy to the valley of strife
It all adds color, but sometimes it’s black
Yet rainbows burst forth…emotions never lack
This roller coaster we can simply embrace
Not one single feeling must we ever disgrace
These are expressions form the depths of our Soul
It’s the Yin and the Yang of what makes us whole
So today I do say, “Know what you feel!!”
And embrace every feeling…you see, it’s part of the deal
Our feelings do tell us one thing for sure
We’re alive, yes alive, with emotion so pure
So on this fine day of Independence we say
Embrace yourself wholly as you sing, walk and pray
Realize the freedom you have to express
Now express every feeling and then get some rest!
Yes, express your emotions, and deny not a one
Be Independent like the moon, stars, earth and sun…
