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? ©

Love’s Power

Love is the calm sea and a raging ocean
It’s the cry of a wolf or a dog’s devotion

Love burns down forests and sways trees
It’s the lightning in a storm or a gentle breeze

Love freezes the waters and quenches thirst
It’s fog at dusk or when the sun rises first

Love is a mighty eagle on the air high above
It’s also in the beauty of a tiny sweet dove

Love shakes the earth and tears all asunder
It’s the morning dew and a rainbow’s wonder

Love shows us things we never saw before
It’s able to break apart or make a heart soar©

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©

Life’s A Ride

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©

Vain Glories

broken-mirror-4-1317204

Yearned for distinction but forgot who I am
Changed for others and I repressed myself
Masqueraded as someone I knew I was not
Searched for happiness in the wrong place
Had desired to please everyone and failed

Becoming fractured, my mirror shattered
Shards that no longer will go back together
Reflections in a million pieces looked at me
Helpless I gathered them hoping for solace
Blood ran from hands and yet I felt nothing

There I stood torn and bloodied by choices
No longer could I see the person I’d become
The weight of this all rested on my shoulder
So removing my mask I felt freedom at last
It was then I knew the mirror was my prison

No Regret

What a thing life is
Do we play with fire and not get burned?
What a path we tread
Do we stumble and get back up again?
What a game we play
Do we gamble with our hearts and lose?
What a risk it could be
Do we love freely or live in fear of pain?
What a choice we make
Do we live with regrets or over come?

Mistakes will be made, but they should
not be allowed to define our future©
