Babies they grow

steps they take

fall and up again

Grown ups they falter

one step then another

fall and lay low?

Why oh why are you down

when acts of the day

take many a night

to learn and grow?

ever rose on high

without a stumble and fall.

Kindness to self

so steps you take

will cause a fall.

Get up and rise again

make steady your feet

to soar!

I have none

burried within

deeper and deeper

to the oceans deapth

and there I found

my gift

it’s me!

self love poems laura fuller storm

A Storm Is Coming

I buttoned down the hatch

and battened up the windows

I watched the storm track

and shook in my shoes.

What if I die?

the storm takes me away

From nowhere

my guiding light

broke my blindness.

In the midst of my storm

I couldn’t run

no where to hide

In the eye of my storm

I prayed, I cried.

Light so bright

the presence of God

His promises to hold me.

I faced my storms

I rose above

His faith never waivered

His mercy never failed

stifles your air

smothered by dark

Crystal Ball

I wish I had a magic ball

to answer all my questions.

Or just a crystal ball

what lay ahead.

Oh what faith I need

to scale the ups and downs

to rise above my falls

that lay ahead.

Oh I wish I knew

the answer!

My Pen

My Pen

My pen is my pal

it helps me decide

what life to take

what road to ride.

So, when I feel

down and alone

I pick up my pen

and away we go.

My pen takes me to seas

and back again

it shows me my dreams

where life begins.

So, you see

my pen is my pal

whatever I can be

my pen will see.
