Strength

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...

New Year's Dream

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...

Waking up from the Hurt

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.

What Lies Beyond Truth?

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...

To Be Decided

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

The Strength Least Expected

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.

Here Until Then

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.

 

(Chorus)
    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...
