Are You Proud of Me? – Written Friday 19th February 2021 (Aged 45)

Are You Proud of Me?

are you proud of me?
i have tried –
to capture sunshine
as best as i can
and i have tried,
to catch the rain
in my homemade cans
and now,
here i am
are you proud of me?
could you tell me now
or just speak aloud
sometimes, these days
i see too many cracks in the clouds
are you proud of me?
my illumination –
is always the bedrock –
of your personal situations
i have tried –
to capture life –
as best as i can
it is a shame that death
has too easily changed hands
are you proud of me?
