Sometimes it works

We have a poem challenge and I gave my friend the title “Sometimes It Works” and this is what she came up with in rough and it’s absolutely amazing 🙂


So this poem is totally a type as the words flow, no long thought or drafts of preparation, just freshly of the press; hope it’s not too raw or rough at the edges.

Sometimes it works

using time to get over

the hurt, daily pressing

on as that pain becomes

smaller in your head.

Yes sometimes it works

but in a different way

you lie in bed wishing

to be dead as your world

crashes in your head.

But we can’t see ahead

cuz the path we of dread

may be the one to bring

us to our dreams instead.

So don’t give up before

you’ve start, keep saying

to yourself, “sometimes

it works,” and mouth speaks

and your heart beats, your mind

will slowly believe the truth

you did repeat.
