Although she was beautiful
her struggle never seemed to fade.
With roots as strong as hers she would always smile
even when her petals were plucked and frayed.
Remember how her beauty glowed
as she faced the sun with grace.
Half laughing, half crying
somehow she bloomed from her pain.

Sometimes it feels like the world is falling apart
Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard you try, you just keep getting brought down
You tell yourself that everything is going to be alright
You tell yourself that you will survive
You look for a sign, anything to tell you that you are going down the right path
You pray to God that he gives you the strength to carry on

Maybe, the tallest tree holds the sky up
Like a tent above our heads.
Maybe the wide branches shelter us,
As we hide against its sides.
Maybe, the near eternal trunk supports us
As we innocents rest.
And the sunlight is more beautiful,
Streaming through its leafy hair.
I could be lifted high, and safely in its arms,
And wonder at the beauty of the world
As it swayed.
There, would be p...

If your minds eye was open,
Would you consider an unabashed divulgance?
Your forthright nature checks my exubernace
Your beauty makes me timourous
I suppress my passion in fear of your answer
Do i dare wonder about consequence?
You make me feel alive, there is no other, there is no level i can gratify
I would be yours, if not for the latitude of convention.
You bring me joy...

Can the difference in our souls be overcome?
The asterism of our fates cannot so opaque.
It is ironic that what we both seek can be defined in a chronograph of sand.
You have so far to travel and yet your peace is already found
I long to tell you of the falsehood of my pretences
To unlock the anacucis of your affections to me would more beautiful than a strand of your auburn locks...

Oh bless me Universe & make me a perfect picture of your art.
Make me as pure as a newborn as I was from the start.
For they left me alone afraid in the dark.
They threw in the ocean to swim with the sharks.
And they laughed as I was ripped apart.
Actuality/Reality ripped away my heart.
I hold my self accountable & it was fifty percent my fault.
And the "Angel Of Death" came ...

The red dust of Mars settles on my heart,
only her will can stop the thrashing of cymbals that call me to her.
Every cascade of flaxen strength undermines the facade of purity
but the tilt of her smile will resound everpresent.
Ablazen are her cobalt eyes, I draw strength from their tranquility
she could not know the foundation she raises the pyre of my love,
the freckled shoulde...

When you left, you took a piece of my heart
When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark
You took with you my light
When you left, I learned to fight
I learned to navigate this world without you by my side
I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much
Now, you're the one ...

There are places I’ve been so low
Places I would not want to go
But there’s one thing it taught me to know
And that’s how to climb
There are times I have felt so weak
Times I forgot how to move, how to speak
But there’s one thing it taught me to see
The power of my mind.
I don’t think I’m stronger than I might have been,
But I’m surely strong enough.
I’ve come so far through so many ...

Fear is such a desperate thing
It tells you many lies
It tells you that you are not strong enough
It says you shall not win, cannot survive.
Fear claims you will not cope
Feeds you despair
It tells you words that you should never trust
It says that you will break beyond repair.
But if you've ever been afraid and heard
It whispering or shrieking in your ear
Then learn from your own pa...

For a long time you felt that you were weak
For a long time you felt that you weren't loved, that you didn't belong
Too emotional, too many feelings,
How could anyone or anything ever love the broken human you'ved become
How could anyone see the beautiful you trying to emerge from the dark
For a long time you felt that you were weak
Too emotional, too many feelings, you deserved...

For the successes that we have
Are as the land,
And all our hopes and plans
As trees and flowers,
But our failings are the droplets
Of the sea and rain
And all our fears and worries -
Winds and storms.
And I am so adrift, so far, so floundering
Though there's most a lifetime learning how to swim,
Till I have thought me too far gone
Or that the raging sky and sea might never ease agai...

You promised me a future,
I painted the perfect picture.
Failing to see the sands,
Slipping through those firmly grasped hands.
Your one moment of affection
I’d find an eternal connection,
I thought this was love,
Until you took away my winter’s glove
I stopped dreaming,
My heart was screaming,
What was this injustice?
The longest day, it was my solstice....

Today's blog is a poem (well, two poems actually) where there are two versions of the poem and I have not yet been able to settle my feelings about which version 'wins'. I feel like there should stay two versions of it.
Version 1 – Personal
If Life will be what it has to be,
And Death will come when it comes,
And all the moments that I breathe
Happiness still is mine to give myself...

Oh you are stranded on a mountain
you are deep down in a cave
you are in a burning building
you are threatened by big waves
There's a hurricane surrounding
The earth is quaking underfoot
you're marooned and you are drowning
you are in amongst the wolves
And you are paralysed and voiceless
you're exhausted and in shock
you're bewildered and defeated
you are hopeless and you're lost

Somewhere in your mind are all the strengths you seek
But say not into your mind 'Do I have strength?'
For only the laughing strength will answer 'Yes'
And only the teasing strength will answer 'No'
And all others will be silent, or will stay asleep.
Somewhere in your mind are all the strengths you need
Not always in the moment you expect.
But in the moment that matters.

You put me in this place
and took away my means of getting out.
You put me in this place yeah
and took away my skill at getting out.
Well you may make me crawl, now
but I'll crawl out stronger when
I crawl out.
This is where I am, yeah
But I won't be here forever, no
And I'll know this place better when I go.
Yeah you brought me low
But I'll climb...
