Uncovering a Treasure Chest of Bliss
March 19, 2016

As the pain of yesterday surrounds me
And I find myself standing in the cave of regret
I wish to be stranded on an island of hope
Where the soothing song of the birds
The melodious drops of the waterfall
And the gentle caress of your love
Calm the storm brewing within my heart
And wash away the bitter memories
That have been my home for years
Uncovering a treasure chest of bliss
Hidden behind the anguish of the past

This poem was written for a writing challenge that involved using the following words in a poem: pain, cave, stranded, island, birds, waterfall, love, storm, home, treasure. These words together seemed to really inspire me and I ended up writing a very emotional poetic piece, which leaves me on the verge of tears each time I read it.

I hope that this poem connects with you and leaves you with a bit of hope and even some inspiration. No matter what we are going through in life, or what bitter memories and pain come to haunt us from the past, we all hope for a better and brighter tomorrow… And it’s that hope that can lead us on a path to happiness.
