Spinning

I cannot believe how quickly time flies.  It’s already time for open links at Real Toads and d’Verse Poets.  Be sure to visit for some amazing poetry.

Spinning, spinning twirling around

faster, faster around I go

until dizzy I fall to the ground.

Waiting, waiting for someone

to come along and pick me up.

Crumpled in a heap, alone I wait.

No knight in shining armor.

No parent with loving arms.

Alone I wait until I look within.

There I find the one I’ve waited for-

no outside person, only me.

I find the strength to pick myself up

and firm I stand on shaky ground

as the world keeps on spinning around.
