everyday people heroes

when she woke up
this morning
on the wrong side
of life

in a pit so low
she could hang
posters
she never knew

as the day unfolded
red
like an unpaid
electric bill

that money could not
buy
that force could not
deliver

the strength,
and
LOVE

she provided 

to keep a life gold

  1. This is a wonderful 55 really, a true-to-life 55. Antoinette Tuff is definitely a hero. It could have ended all so much horribly if it had not been for her courage and strength. Wow, just wow, to both your poem and Antoinette.
