Intertwined-

Intertwined,
Two lives-
Aren’t they always?

Hanging down,
Single thread-
Barely surviving.

Letting go,
Crashing down-
No one to catch it.

Getting up,
Kicking dust-
Rising asunder.

Single thread,
Meddled with-
dust and it glimmers.

Broken hearts,
Leave more cracks-
For rays to shine in.

Like meddled thread,
It glimmers on-
Really surviving.

Strength…

Strength…

It’s making a choice,
Due to manic hormone;
Yet sticking with them,
Even when you hit low.

It’s going to bed,
not planning to awake;
still rising to work,
When dusk gives way.

It’s smiling and strutting;
Though inside is hurting;
Admitting ‘I’m not fine’;
But adding ‘I will be’.

It’s rising then falling;
Still rising and trying;
Though chances are slim you’ll-
Succeed yet keep trying.

Strength ain’t gun or dagger;
A man armed with armor;
It’s finding your feet even,
When they’ve been twisted-
Not broken, just bent.
