first_imgA ripe chance existed for a classroom spaceA wise woman sold bottled pepper to have feesA hand busy at the spindle to keep us all warmA lesson so early on in life that told me to workA thankful childhood gifted in very little plus loveA house packed with brothers all over the placeA boxing ring rolled out very often to quiet someAt Least ………………. I Was BlessedA school of girls left to be cleaners and cooksA difference was made for me by a role modelA sewing machine was on the table in our homeA pair of knitting needles poked a fluffy lilac yarnA doll baby box kept all the left over fanti fabricsA tabletop oven puffed out succulent cornbreadA taste of how to keep home laced on very earlyAt Least …………….. I Was BlessedA time was known when all was far and failingA place that did not know tomorrow as it is todayA world void of twilights to see through the hazeA circle that ran round round with no signpostsA dove circling the skies peeking down for a spotA dancing orange petal waves to the wind’s gustA girl brown with sunburn hair strides to an easeA people made fine of the hard knocks of povertyA note of hope for all to preserver this livid rageAt Least ……………. I Was BlessedShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
