Faith Friday: Believe

Hi to my new readers! 

If you're here for my poetry fest entries, go one post down. If you're here for my entry for Ali Cross's blog fest, it's a little different than you expect but enjoy!

Unexpected Turns

It's Independence day
or just the fourth or July
if you want to call it that
yet that doesn't matter
when something unexpected happens.

Going to Niagara Falls as a family
was the plan,
but having sat in a car for 8 hours
and being surrounded by boys
was too much.

My body ached
emotionally and physically
I wanted to be alone.

I got that for a few
but my little cousin
also stayed behind
and wanted me to hang out.

I did for awhile
but sleep was calling
and I was able to answer.

But again I was interrupted
cuz the family was home
talking about the fun
seeing a sunset on the falls
and the fireworks coming after that
they say I missed so much
and I know I did
but rest was really needed.

Also, there is the #TourdeWriting going on. My word count for this first week is only 186 words. And finally for my sisters, I found a new love, Maher Zain- I Believe. Enjoy!

thank you,

It was fun to read a poem one - and yes, sometimes rest is a definite need. :)
