As part of an inspired writing exercise I wrote what this picture said to me.
Then I converted my thoughts to a poem. The last time I wrote a poem was in 1985 for an english class.
This is the first time I have written one just for me.
Rusted, worn edges
Splintered dry wood
Gun shot sides
Long have I stood
to shelter and protect
Your mail I carry
My heart you neglect
I will not deny
I will not forsake
I am your mailbox
Though I ache
“Loyalty and devotion lead to bravery. Bravery leads to the spirit of self-sacrifice. The spirit of self-sacrifice creates trust in the power of love.”
