“Surrounded”     by Marilyn Griffin

Surrounded by people…

Opinions are flying…

I look toward this ruckus…

Seems they are lying…

Surrounded by people…

I hear the voices…

I listen to words…

I have to make choices…

Surrounded by people…

They keep telling me…

I have my ideas…

Can’t they not see?

Surrounded by people…

I don’t like their sounds…

I will close my mind…

Or I will drown…

Surrounded by people…

I filter them out…

I’m wrapped in a love…

I have no doubts…

Surrounded by people…

I’ve become strong…

No one can penetrate…

I know right from wrong…

Feel the Love            by: Marilyn Griffin

Times come and go…

I want better…

but, see no sign…

I make do.

Shelter from rain and sun…

Shade from tree…

A place to lay my head…

Skies seem gray.

The ground is dusty…

Dirt seems to cling…

Walking miles for water…

Returning the next day.

I gaze up at times…

Straining for a sign…

I bend my head…

and feel the love.
