And Away We Go

And Away We Go

written by: Chasity Gaines



Upon a path I know so well
For once again, the Wheel of Life

Spins my world upside down
After a spell of good luck

It seems all is crumbling
Falling to tiny motes of dust

Breath bated waiting for the final blow
Sending life into a tornado of destruction

Which makes me wonder,
What bad deeds await atonement?

Have I not paid in full?
Losing the ones I held dearest

Not even after all these years
Does Karma appear to be satisfied

I am a 35 year old mother, wife, and grandmother. I started writing as soon as I knew how to hold a pencil and form words. I always carried a little black notebook with me so when inspiration hit.
I write poetry, fantasy, and creative non-fiction. I hold a Bachelors in Creative Writing and English from Southern New Hampshire.
I finally gave up on my mundane job to become a full-time writer. I am participating in NaNoWriMo for the first year!
I love to read, write, mediate, listen to music, spend time with family, and relax at the beach.
