An Acrostic: The Last Minute of Life

‚Äč

B-edded in a calm rich soil of life,
L
-anguishing or flourishing hinge on the world around me.
O-h! I am the symbol of peace when it strife;
O-pted between death and love, and gun and me.

M-oving through the wind’s fancy,
M
-y humble petals flapping comically,
Y
-ellowed by God’s hands himself
D
-eemed to be here for you, HIM, and myself.

E-every day of nourishment that the blue sky gives,
A
-nd the rest of the night when I am out of shift
R
-elaying am I on my own self when comes strong breeze.
B
-eautiful yellow sign of life and hopes that countless frowns I lift.

L-ook at those kids playing in distance
O
-ver here! Fancy me and show me some love.
O
-h no! They’re hands are approaching me,
M
-y travel starts now to him who created me.
