Joyfully At Home

A Poem By Damaris Ann // 2/21/2016

Joyfully at home I shall wait,
Never sigh in my single state.
Indeed, better Hands hold my fate;
Joyfully at home.

Life at home is not always "fun",
But brings more joy in the long-run.
Contented to serve a good Son;
Joyfully at Home.

More hands to do the needed work,
Less for mother who does not shirk,
Time learning patience is a perk;
Joyfully at home.

Someday I may have my own place:
A diff'rent man will set the pace.
With my fam'ly running life's race;
Joyfully at home.

Great job!

This is a really good piece! I had the pleasure of knowing Jasmine and her family personally many years ago, when her father was just starting his ministry. He was a pastor at my church here in Houston. Really sweet family. Though I am not currently a stay-at-home daughter, I definitely respect those girls who are "joyfully at home". Great work here! :)

Thank you dear!
I have visited the Housten church where Mr. Bauchum was speaking but was not able to meet any of the family. But I respect them very much. :)

Your rhythm and lineation

Your rhythm and lineation were quite nice. Thank you for that! Also, Sarah Liz, it's nice to see another Houstonian on AP. :)

Thank you, Erin!
There's just one line that I trip over. It's the one that says "But brings more joy in the long-run." I'm trying to think of a way to reword it to where I won't trip over it... Not yet sure what I'll do about it.
