The Turnaround

My poem for Oneshotwednesday at Oneshotpoetry
Join in!

I’m standing in front of this heavy gate,
hard to open,
hard to find

I guess it’s fate,
I was hopin’
the world won’t mind

I guess it’s too late,
expecting fortune,
I guess I’m blind

I’m in a desprate state
happiness? God forbid!
a rope to bind

struggle overcome
my spine is straight

return… a big amount
the black hole…  a little one
nothing less than great

insufficiencies… not much to count
suddenly I can have some fun
suddenly a lighter gate

now it has a whole different sound
what’s it called?

I think it’s called happiness…


  1. smiles. nice turnaround...nowwhat was it that made teh difference? nice one shot!

  2. that's indeed a nice turnaround andy..and yeah...the sound of happiness is beautiful..

  3. I guess I'm blind... awesome. Nice One Shot. Love and Light, Sender

  4. "I think it's called happiness..."

    I love those moments when I'm blissed out and then come to that remembrance, oh, this is what it's like to be happy.

    Great One Shot!
