[10] "This is a poem I wrote to remind myself to be hopeful in the midst of adversityand personal trials.

Sometimes, The day seems rather cold. From my window, I view the prison of winterAnd the harsh winds that blow against my course.The fluid pond has turned icy hard,Seems to amplify the toughnessOf hearts once thought to be full of love. In the midst of this long winter, For a brief interlude of a day,The temperatures peaked -And the sky was a pure baby blue-With the hope of a sun whose ambiance Radiated a spectrum of yellow-orange rays. Sometimes, its amazing how one contrasting Day reminds me that spring is on its way!
