Life is a puzzle; we are the clues, and God is the answer.
Let’s not walk through this road, forgetting
That only when we let trust stay afloat
Will we be able to drown our cloak of doubt.
For dreams don’t soar in our sleep
Because only when we are wide awake
Are we able to give them wings.
And only when our courage learns to fly
Are we able to crash our fears.
Let’s walk through this road, remembering.
This poem is inspired by the Amilynn verse by Mr. Bert Ugalino. But instead of strictly following the structure of the verse form (progressing from one line to two lines, then to three, and so on), I used the concept in the other Ugalino verse forms of creating a mirror effect, although again, I did not strictly use the mirror effect because I used parallelism, instead of repetition. The first and the last lines are parallel, so are the second and the fourth stanzas. To learn about Amilynn, click here. To read about the earlier Ugalino verse forms, click here. .//Sherma E.
