Welcome to an inspirational, short story blog by Kasi Maria Bryon, a pen name, pronounced, "Kay-see." This blog is different topics, but all about life ... through the eyes of a middle aged, single mom of two. Enjoy
This is the longest poem I have ever written and will take about 7-8 minutes to read. I tried to just 'write' about this event in an attempt to document it, but for some reason I never liked the way it turned out. Last night, a flood of thoughts came to me and I sat down and wrote for about 2 hours. No idea why or how, but it came out in this poem form. It is written to my youngest daughter. She cried when she read it and really loved it... so to me, it has already served it's purpose, no matter what. But hopefully another may enjoy it, or some part of it. It is about my daughter getting saved.
for God to give me a second child,
Him again, I’d do my very best.
wish trying hard or having the right intention,
the grade and if I passed that test.
you feel you’ve had a good childhood,
I was a good mother to you.
me there are some things that could’ve been better,
years ago I attended a hair show in Vegas and met one of the platform artists.
Months later, I saw him in a magazine and got the bright idea to hire him for
the grand opening party of my salon. I contacted him and he put me in touch
with his agent, both lived in New York. I will never forget the first phone
conversation I had with the agent, Mel. I was sitting at the front desk and at
the first sound of his voice I thought, this
won’t work. I don’t have anything against gay men, but he sounded extreme,
and I’m a little on the conservative side. Maybe I thought he would be dramatic
or just too much for my southern salon, I’m not sure. Now, I look back and
realize how misleading first impressions can be.
