For Once… A Happy Poem!

*peels you off of the floor*

Yes. It’s true. I actually wrote a happy poem… and it’s honestly one of my favorites now! I hope you like it, too.:)


it’ll come again – someday –

and you’ll skip through the puddles with its

rays on your face

and you’ll

smile again

but not like before

‘cause the raindrops have

pummeled your skin and they’ve rinsed off the

dust that hid

beauty within

oh, you’ll smile again

more beautifully

  1. I love it! It makes me grateful for the rains of life, and hopeful that they’ll infuse my character with more than remembrance of suffering. ❤🤗 (Haha, I smiled when I saw the first few words. So true! 😂 Although I also like your more introspective poems too, as they make me really think.)

  2. Oh, this is so beautiful, Laurel, and so true! That’s about all I can say except that it’s… so… beautiful. I wanna read it again (for the fourth time, I think?). Thanks so much for sharing this!
