Tattoo…Me?

Featured

skin tattoo?
me?
never!!!

with a sterile needle
you pierce my soul
seal the gaps
heal the holes
engrave your love
etch your kindness
leave a mark
some indelible stain
hard to rub off

I promise…
I’ll pass it on
forever!!!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: Tattoo….You?
Do you have a tattoo? If so, what’s the story behind your ink? If you don’t have a tattoo, what might you consider getting emblazoned on you skin?

Affirmation

Are you real?
Or we humans
Hallucinate you are there?

I was born
Have lived on till now
Wake up alive each day.
Your little marvels

I get to live
Each day – a good life
Eat, drink and smile.
Your little miracles

Time and time again
I get myself into strife
And you – my life’s boatman
Come from nowhere
To reset my life.

Have more than I deserve
Each day I encounter you
Each day I bow –
to you and your wonderful
gift of life.

My poem was in response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “In Good Faith.”
“Describe a memory or encounter in which you considered your faith, religion, spirituality — or lack of — for the first time.”
