Of her days-

Of her days-

image

She wrote, but not enough
She cried, a little too much
Her smile, remained confined
Without, reaching her eyes.

She lived not- just survived
Her hope- was growing dark
She slept, each night in hopes
A new dawn, would not arrive.

But if- given the choice
To end her life for good;
She’d struggle, and rise above,
The waves- pulling her down.

She’s sad and just away
From despair, by an inch
And that makes all the difference,
Cause “almost” means- not there yet.

She-
still writes, though not enough;
still cries, sometimes too much;
But she’s living, through sticks and stones,
And for now, that is enough.

Somewhere out there is something better,
And that something is worth fighting for.

Life is…

Life is…

Life is a battleground;
A roller coaster-
With mostly downs.
Life is a struggle-
You fight, you lose;
You battle with issues-
A secret war.
Life is a mystery,
Unravelling;
In little steps, taken-
The puzzle fits.
It takes patience,
A thick skin-
To surf through the waves
Life keeps bringing.

Life is pretty,
It’s beautiful-
In the rays of the sun,
In the mountain view;
In the dew after rain,
And the morning haze;
In the force of the moon,
And the ocean’s waves;
In the dance of the leaves,
And the chirping birds-
Is the power to heal,
After life’s heartaches.

Somewhere along the lines-

Somewhere along the lines-

Somewhere along the lines,
I lost it
Went a little Astray,
Forgot it
Broke away from the path,
And wandered
Away from my first love,
Poetry.

I wrote but it was all,
blurred out
Filled with words that contained,
No heart sounds
And the tears that I poured,
On paper
Seemed to wander with lost,
Desire

But oh writing, it’s time-
To find you
Got to mend back the rails,
And track on
Bleed the words of my heart,
In rhythm
Pen and paper in hand-
I’ll make it.
