​”If life ain’t been no crystal stair ” | by Sofia Kioroglou

Enjoy what is in your glass
whether half full or half empty
just let it whirl around and
savor its body and color

Don’t just swig it but sip it slowly
allow its flavor to linger on your palate
Take what life throws at you
and if it is a lemon make some iced tea

If life ain’t been no crystal stair
embrace the tacks and splinters
today’s slings and arrows are
tomorrow’s fish-and-chip paper

SOFIA KIOROGLOU
I am a writer, a poet, a pilgrim, a missionary and a wife! I find writing to be a form of catharsis. My poems are imbued with deep empathy and begging for answers. Sometimes my lines are overlaid with religious nuances only to provide a compass for my journey in life and jumping-off point for my inspiration. I hate great talkers as everything runs out of them like leaky pitchers. My poetry can be found online and in print. For more information, drop by my blog at:sofiakioroglou.wordpress.com
