Cord blinds-201173_1280

The cord to the blinds snapped right off

I was hoping to let some light in

But maybe this filtered light isn’t so bad

Should I buy a new cord,

A new blind,

Or tie it back together the best I can?

I’m going to peek through

to see if the light

is worth it.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. The thing I love most about poetry is how simple words can provide the reader with reflection. As I read this, I thought, “How often do we throw away something that is fixable because it’s easier to just replace it than it is to do the work to restore it?” And the thought of how it broke trying to let the light in and then you ending with “I’m going to peek through to see if the light is worth it.” We do that so often in life… we peek through to see if we want to do something versus committing fully. Or we look through someone else’s eyes. I really liked this one! Simple yet got me thinking! ~Shell

    1. Oh I love hearing what this poem made you think. It’s so true how we throw things away so quickly rather than try to fix it. I’m so glad you liked it. Thank you for taking the time to read it and comment. It means the world to me.

  2. Do we live in the light or leave it filtered? Let it all in or stay in the other place that feels kind of cold but comfortable? Do we cut the cord or stay connected, maybe we’re trying to get tied back in or maybe its time for a whole new… idk.
    See if its worth it… I like 🙂
    I like how is simple but could look at it in so many different ways.
