My One Beat: (The Cape is Gone)

By , Green Bay, WI

In my one beat I am a superhero whose cape is nothing but a tattered hankie from a forgotten child’s repertoire of misery In my one beat I recall a memory stained by the tears of its invoking misery.

In my one beat I do my best to remember that today is better than yesterday and that tomorrow will be better than today.

In my one beat I evict hate from my heart put there by those that would gleefully lead me astray.

In my one beat I stand up for what I believe in and defeat the fear that would cause me pain.

In my one beat I am something you couldn’t be if you tried.

In my one beat I am the absolute best I can be.

In my one beat I am a veteran of a war I never signed up for.

In my one beat I am strong.

In my one beat I am forever, and I am never.
