"A book of haiku's that brings sunshine to the hood when frowns dominate. Ever seen corner stores in the middle of the block, with poverty performing on the corner? If no..

I somewhat feel quitly to express my poems, as someone paid money to keep this site going, and I have so many of my moms poems to put on, but feel a great need now with her inspiration to express my own. I hope that those who read this will at least understand, I am still reaching out to her, as I express myself.

Finding closure in life is like looking into mirrors,

And scared what you might see, as it might be your own face

And shadow, and memories of good and bad, and dealing with

And facing, but knowing you are trying to reach closure.

Finding closure means facing things you hate to face.

Emotions, death, life and uncertain steps on your life,

But knowing they bring you closer to your life in stride,

And growing and wisdom on the way. Hard to reach

On the way, but longing for closure.

Closure is a time to forgive or think about it,

Time to cry while you realize yourself,

Time to think of times gone by

While you think of your own growth,

That others teach you to listen by. Or try to.

Closure is the tears you shed

The times ones told you to understand,

And you did. Or at least tried to.

Closure is the smiles on the way,

The smiles and memories that crossed

So many ways. People, so caring.

Closure should not be miss understood,

(I did not spell that wrong).

Closure is what makes us cry and fight for

Emotions, no matter how we belong.

And smiles, reminding us that we

Belong and were strong. And make a point to do this.

Closure is dealing with yourself,

As you have got to get there before anyone else,

To face their smiles and their ways, of in

Hopes to face your own, to reach theirs as

Yours as well. I think you understand.

If facing closure, you do.

Concerning closure, remember that

Time and emotions tell with so much

Expressed so well in your heart.

The depressed feelings help go away

With those who help you stay or understand

Closure, and teach you or try to reach you.

Closure is a wisdom of life, though hard,

Expressed in so many ways.

Closure takes time and wraps you in

In emotions, to deal, to love, to forgive

And sometime to try and to forget

There are many many true and wise words in this poem. You must look at yourself, inside and out, be able to forgive yourself inside and out, before any closure can begin to do any good.
Your words of wisdom makes a person think about their own life and wonder if closure will come to them, as it seems to have come to you in your heart and mind. Anyone, (with any sense), can relate to each line of truth. The words eat at you and tear into your soul.
This was so beautiful, it made me cry. And while the tears were running down my flushed cheeks, it made me think of what I need to do. Thank you so much for the insight and soul searching. Your friend, Paula.
