Newly Awakened – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.



Awakened refreshed and thankful

Blessings shower down to cleanse for a new day

Shave off the disappointment of yesterday to a smooth future

Splash on cologne-smell of new hope to impress upon

newfound opportunities

Dress to radiate success-looking good is feeling good

Aura of self-esteem, full of boldness

Then life’s traffic jams me

Everyone rubbernecking me

Accident dragged to side of life highway

Not my fault but fate

Morning now twisted in a wreck

Air now heavy with judgment and blame

Head woozy from hitting the airbag

Told responsible for the created mess

Can’t recall so I take the guilt

Placed in the care of a doctor who

can save my life

Saying prayers to live-to life

Operated on me to recover

To wake up refreshed and thankful once more
