5 Things My Accident Taught Me

In the early hours of Sunday morning (just over a week ago), I had a minor car accident which could have been FAR worse than it was. The incident left me very reflective and my busy yet fulfilling weekend as a whole reminded me of a few things:

1) I can do all things through He who strengthens me and faith + works = awesome results.

2) I’m important to a lot of people and I’ve still got a lot more to give to the world so it’s not time to go yet!

3) I keep discovering and developing new skills all the time and my gifts will make room for me and get me to where I’m supposed to be.

4) I’m grateful for caring and supportive friends – one in particular who stopped what they were doing when they heard about my accident, picked me up from my apartment, drove me to my appointment and then picked me up hours later to take me home!

5) I really love my life – imperfections and all.

Forty Winks

 
Sleep held you
in suicidal arms
coasting,
ready to kamikaze
breath away.
 

Remind him;
not all who kip
are morose;
some merely
like dark hugs.

    So glad you’re safe and still with us! May you have many more happy, beautiful & productive days ahead! 🙂

    Stunning, stunning poem btw. ❤ It's actually very relatable and the images are just exquisite! I like how there is a positive twist towards the end, but the emotions in the poem are still complex.

      Amen!
      Thank you kindly Yusra 🙂 I really appreciate the sentiment.
      It’s funny because you always seem to like the poems that take me the least time to write.
      I literally wrote this one on a whim because I needed a piece to accompany the post! I’m so glad you like it – especially given that I love your writing so much.
