EPIPHANY Read Count : 8

Category : Poems

Sub Category : N/A

I awoke from a dream
the other day
it wasn't a normal
dream for me
and I woke up in a
cold, cold sweat
because I'd had an
epiphany

The foresight to which
I would foresee
took my breath away,
and no matter how deep
of a breath I gulped
the anxiety became
urgency

This feeling that I kept
was the feeling one gets
like a baby needing
it's nursing,
still I chuckle inside
while I pushed it
to the back of my mind
and went on about my day
as nothing

towards the end of the week
I was knocked off of my feet
with the ringing of the phone,
It was my mama to say
"I had a heart attack
that day..
luckily I wasn't alone".

After this call
I would sit and weep
for the many years
I had given her
adolescent grief

If only I could turn back
the hands of time
I'd give her a reason
to be proud she's mine

Now I replay my
thirty six years in life
to figure out
how it all flew by

And as I follow the deaths
through our generation tree
yep,
the next is my parents..
and then will be me
