100 Days of Happy: Day #49/ God Bless the Snowy Road


Day #49: the last of our really nice days until whenever Spring decides to show up again. Back to a polar vortex and more snow this week. I soaked up the sun today at the playground and decided to do my favorite thing: swing.

God Bless the Snowy Road
Jessica Marie

God bless the snowy road,
icy and slippery, I shuffle as I walk;
yet despite the falls, I continue to unload
with Twiztid, Orgy and Monoxide talks.
I set out every day at two,
on weekdays right before school gets out
and in Johnny Cash fashion, music blows my blues
away; the difference is it’s not a Folsom break-out,
though in the past five months I had my own jail—
God bless the snowy road,
day dreaming and prayer hoists the sails
to make it through, my own hell showed—
on display, to me at least, to all that view;
disappointment after disappointment,
yet in faltering it’s like the spirits knew—
a treasure found and to my enjoyment;
God bless the snowy road,
where dogs are walked with sun
and a few friendly faces greet after snow,
enough money found to begin my run
to a brand new snowy road and fun;
with a struggle and drive I won
the navigation of the long, windy road,
it’s in this lesson I learn that life isn’t all woe.



Tomorrow is my 8 year anniversary on Writing.com. I have some special things planned that I started working on today. I hope to have it done for my post tomorrow. :D

    1. Thank you. :)

      I hope my poem sounds okay; I felt inspired on Saturday to write it, but then I felt really relaxed at Aunt Kathy's and fell asleep instead. :p
