Throne Of Uncertainties-Poem

by Samuel De Lemos

I don’t sit on a throne of luxury and ease
I look around me—I know I’m blessed.
I’ve been granted a loving family and friends.
My throne is a throne of uncertainties—

It’s like walking a tightrope on a windy day.
I take it step-by-step
and day to day.
Praying that tomorrow
won’t blow up in my face.
Happy that I’m still in the race.

I’ve come to understand Job’s fears,
of trying to keep things intact and
protecting the ones that are near,
while the enemy schemes behind my back.

But, I won’t let it get me down,
I’ll get up every morning with cheer,
kiss my loved ones who give me the strength
to face my day like a lion in pursuit of a meal.
