From Death To Life – 2 Tanka Poems

Micropoetry Month: November 2017: #17Try a Tanka or 2.

From Death To Life

once so rejected
unloved by my own mother
broken and despised
left with a life of darkness
I laid in wait for my death

now a heart so full
gratitude overwhelming
blessed and loved by God
tears overflow from the heart
the joy of true acceptance
