1 of 250k, again 🌵🌞🌴

Contributing to a multi million dollar event
Without any regrets as the line up represents
“The Weekend” living smug and content
I’ve resigned from pitching, but I’ll spy tents
A little less frequent, but up and coming quick
As the fans predict with their supportive picks


Over 9 days nearly a billion dollars is made in the desert it’s truly amazing and well orchestrated : LA Times 2016 stats

Protests Rage

You had the ability to stifle much of this anger
By simply modifying your nonchalant demeanor
Express a symptom of human compassion and remorse
For ending a life early, in the line of duty, you enforced
Words you so carefully choose with an inexpressive face
Reflects solely on your disgrace and fuels community rage
Break your silence with something worth hearing; a sincere apology
Give the distraught community something else to believe
Or continue to maintain a faultless conscious as protests rage
Across this great and mighty nation where justice can’t assuage

Dealing with the constant abuse

Making up worthless excuses

Day after day choosing to stay

Lacking the courage to walk away

 ~

Exploding under the cover of night

Defenseless against a crumpling strike

Past out cold from the solid blows

Awakens to see her children know

~

Discovering an internal strength

Holding tightly to her treasured faith

Flees with her children from the violence

Seeks shelters and holy spirit for guidance

 ~

Struggling a little less each and every day

Finally, beginning to see hope and a way

Satisfied, to sleep at ease through the night

Overwhelmed, by a generous surprise

 

Inspired by The Reverie Journal – Making Headlines Challenge, which was  to scour the news for inspiration. I decided to go with local news ABC7 Mother in Need and a heart warming story about a homeless mother of three who survived domestic abuse and was given a car with a trunk full of groceries.
