In the Darkest Corner?© by Felina Silver Robinson

I am in search of the darkest corner
So I can hide and be out of sight
My scars run too deep to be seen by others
I will make any human stomach turn
Fire rapture my body but left me here to rot on this earth
But clearly no one wants to see my face
So I roam endlessly through the night looking for the darkest corners
Wishing and hoping for any kind of comfort
The daylight brings me nothing but pain and torment
People stare and whisper and call me names
Those less caring throw rocks or whatever they can find
They don’t even bother to ask what happened
Is this any way to treat a hero
I fought for the freedom of these people
Those we were fighting blew up our truck
While my friends laid dying
I laid crying
From all the pain of my melting skin
I was the only one to survive
Even in my darkest hour I still protect the children who lay near
Our attackers came upon us and I laid it on them
Now they too laid dying while I still lay crying
But now I’m left here hiding
Because no one can stand the sight of me
Why must they all deny me after all I’ve done to save them

My Pride and Joy© by Felina Silver Robinson

Through good times and bad times
Through thick and thin
My kids are number one
They put a smile on my face when no one else can
They love me no matter what I say or do
I’m so happy to have them all so close
I surely don’t mean to boast
But they really do mean the most
There is nothing that gives me greater joy than to see them all enjoy

Recipe for Happiness© by Felina Silver Robinson

Stories great and long
Memories crystal clear
Undying love and dedication
A do anything, be anything, say anything attitude
Making time for all that matters the most
Is a true “recipe for happiness”

Note to my new readers: About my “Poem Bursts” – I give myself 30 seconds to one minute, and then write what comes to mind. This is a fun writing exercise I give myself to come up with something different from what I might usually write. I hope you enjoy the outcome.
