Ishmael Borngreat (A Journey)

A very inspirational young man.

Poetry

Beaten down to the floor 

The good side of life was never at my door 

A slim string of hope I had to hold strong

..thoughts……how many shoes I could fix in a day 

I have tried this and that but it never paved a way 

today and tomorrow under the minimum wage 

covered all day in glue and polish stains 

walking miles neglecting the pains 

however little, I just needed the gains 

to survive in a world where all is for the taking 

where everyone only cares about what they’re making

a little act of kindness would always be breathtaking 

I have always remained humble and it paid off

the light shined on me and I stood up

with open an mind I woke up

“opportunity comes but once in a lifetime”

very opportune I am for mine to come…

    1. Hi there Sadie, glad you’re back, at least for a little while. I have gone to your blog on several occasions through several months and didn’t see any movement.
      Hope the house is stable and doesn’t fall on top of you…..kidding.
      Glad to hear from you, and have a great New Year. Hey! Don’t party too much.
