she was beautiful

but she thought she was cursed

as everyone shunned her

The World Series starts tonight! In your own life, what would be the equivalent of a walk-off home run? (For the baseball-averse, that’s a last-minute, back-against-the-wall play that guarantees a dramatic victory.)

This is my idea of a perfect home run….

I lay on the bed,

Riddled with pain,

My whole body ached,

My mind was not sane.

My skin was sagging,

My eyesight weak,

The night was dragging,

I was turning into a freak.

I wished for health,

I yearned for youth,

I hoped for wealth,

That was the truth.

I waited for the dawn,

I waited for  God’s grace,

And as the new sun shone,

I saw my new face.

I was young again,

I again had health,

I had an active brain,

God had given me the ultimate wealth.
