My Lost Property

DSC_0036 (2)

Reflective by Mac©

I’m feeling something’s gone in me, but don’t know what it could be
And yet my heart is still all in tact, don’t know then what it is I lack
Often it seems to be very hard to cope, maybe I have lost all my hope
But my soul is surely in its place, and a smile is still across this face
Found my mind and it seems hazy and yes it’s even a wee bit crazy
Maybe I’ll not find my way, I could give up, look again another day

But on and on I’ll search some more, coming to this peaceful shore
Up to the water’s edge and take a look, realized that I have mistook
Many things my reflection shows to me, finding who I’m ment to be
In the search to find what’d been removed, I realized I’ve improved
So if you find my lost property, will you please let it go and set it free

R.I.P.

Like a memory that is under the surface, void of cohesion
Struggles to figure out where it is or what sence it makes
So are the feelings of one as she, staring into the mirror
Who is this person? She is plainly no longer recognizable
A fog of memories surrounds her, drowning out all clarity
Still nothing comes of it, like a word stuck on your tongue
Wake her from this nightmare or better yet, let in the dark
A heart cannot bear the pounding and her lungs the weight
Falling into an abyss that has no beginning or any ending
With eyes now closed and future hid, she wanders aimless
Until at last her bones are buried and written here reads…
“Rest In Peace”

What Is The Answer?

sad-woman-meditating1-1680x1050-wide-wallpapers.net
Haunting my sleep always

Always I fear mourning loss
Loss that consumes all my soul
Soul that was once entwined in you
You can cure these symptoms of mine
Mine I hope that you will always be
Be in my heart til forever my love
Love’s what we must hold on to
To be or not to is the question
But what is the answer? ©

Resounding Resolve

alone

I refuse to let my heart be overrun
Cares of this world will I overcome

Making my way with steps renew
Believeing in myself is all I can do

Capable of anything is my life song
A run or a walk or just getting along

Trusted the good and even the worst
But most of all must trust in me first

Relying on others is sometimes best
But they can fail you during the test

With strengthened resolve to carry on
I know who I am and where I belong©

Am I Strong Enough?

I search into the abiss, pondering the choices in front of me
Considering all facets and still I remain torn from understanding

You leave me weak and frail yet I continue to need your cure
What is this hold that you have over me? Keeping my secrets hid

Please release me from this thing that is ruining my existence
Rather to be an empty vessel than to be owned by this cruel mind

Controversy is my bed fellow and strife is the mistress of all
Each moment that I am in their presence I am lost more to them

Yet it is of my own doing that I find myself entangled within
What will become of me? I know escape is only for the strongest©

A Place Of Peace

ocean-tides-of-change

The world closes in and tries to overtake me
Pausing I meditate to block out the noise
Only then do I feel at peace and strong again
A new day with the power to take on life
Finding a will to move forward in my journey
Taking time to consider my weaknesses
Overcoming all that is in my way fearlessly 
I promise myself that I will not look back
Today will I find courage for all my tomorrows
Yesterday is gone and cannot be changed
Hanging on to the negative produces sorrows
Let go of all the darkness and find a light©
