The Chapel of Daylight


It happened again.

I said something


probably stupid

and they laughed.


I can’t do it anymore.


It occurred again.

I was picked last.

in the stupid

sports team.

How very sweet.


I’m in denial.


It took place again.

I gave the wrong answer.

To the teacher and

to my mom.


I don’t know

what’s what anymore.


It ensued again.

Boredom took over

like communism

in the East.


I am tired.


It transpired again.

I looked in

the mirror;

didn’t like what I saw.


I wish she was dead.


(To the girls who bullied


and myself, of course.)


I made up this thing


‘The Chapel of Daylight’

and there it’s always bright.

Weird, am I right?


So maybe tonight,

I’ll sit in the daylight

I’ll sit in the Chapel of Daylight

and I’ll hope.

Interesting detailing of external distress and a personal, internal haven of response. Most have their own response, and I like yours. Nice work! SPP

Hope is stronger than hate, so sit in your Chapel and welcome the light!
