Are you afraid?
You still feel broken,
Are you afraid?
Pain, you still feel pain,
Are you afraid?
You feel the rain,
So why do you feel afraid?
Kill your indecision tonight,
There is nothing to be afraid of.
Darkness welcomes you while you write,
So why feel afraid if the ideas come from above?
Do not be paranoid,
Just put everything on paper.
There is nothing to avoid,
Do not let fear be your shaper.
No worries, it will fade.

Wonder what it would have been like
If things had just gone right.
If I had just taken chances
And played a different tune with my circumstances.
I know I messed up so many opportunities
To see life without these insecurities.
I wonder, had I beaten a different path
If I’d be free from this wrath
That consumes me at times
And sends me reeling inside.
Guess I’ll never know,
And that’s what tortures me so.
Lack of knowledge is a curse,
Which cannot be offset by anything worse.
These aspects I’ll never know
Circle around my mind like blowing snow,
Freezing me deep in my core,
Making life difficult forever more.
If only I could see
What those chances would have got me;
Maybe then I could finally have closure
To issues that see no exposure.
But I’m just venting after all
Because solving everything is impossible.

The Path Unknown
There was a road I longed to tread, with
Rotten leaves and words unsaid.
Unknown to all where this path leads,
Sanguine I stay, must trust my creed.
This hope shall lead my heart back home.
My joy subdues the more this body roams, but
Enchanted that my curiosity was fed.
Today’s post was inspired by the Daily Prompt: Fork
I’m so tired, yet I’d rather not sleep
I’ve had enough nightmares to last for weeks
Just when I think you’re out of my head
I’m haunted by things you still do or heard things you’ve said
I can’t imagine what it must be like to be you
To play all the games, tell the lies, mess with the lives you do
Doesn’t matter if it’s an adult or even just a little boy
What you can’t control, you destroy
You’re not even happy with your own life
“Misery loves company” so you wield your sharpest knife
However, you’re good at playing the victim when given the chance
I’m amazed at all who really know you but yet they still dance
With all these years of practice you’ve gotten it down
People are either disposed of or to you are bound
Isn’t it tiring to control so many people all the time

“Was I supposed to be looking for a pedophile around ever tree?”
Yes mother, you were.
“Should I have not shaken his hand?”
No father, you shouldn’t have. He is a pedophile.
“What could we have done? You didn’t tell us enough.”
I told you both enough.
I lay here.
The sticks thrown,
Laying at my feet.
Lashes felt through out me.
I lay here,
As the green algae envelops me.
They won’t notice.
They scoff at my defeat.
“She’s just mentally ill.”
They say to disregard me.
To deflect my persistent screams.
They mock and minimize the anxiety.
My spine is crooked from their feet.
I said enough.
I shouted to the world.
But enough is not what they ever need.
“Silence!” The continue to plead.
I will never concede.
They want me down with the sticks
And the stones.
They want me covered in the mold.

I am a run on sentence
Too many ideas
Ping pong in my head
Too many fragments of me
Across the page of my life
No patience with punctuation
No place left to pause for breath
Afraid to stop too long
Hesitant to contemplate
Each phrase on its own
In its weighty separateness
Wary of pausing
Reluctant to allow
Of my sentence
To just sit
For a moment
And breathe. . .
What can happen in a second?
- A baby can take their first breath of life
- A bullet can leave a gun, zoom through the air, and destroy a life
- A smile can brighten someone’s day and lift their spirits
- Expressing gratitude can make someone feel special
- A harsh word, spoken in anger, can break a person’s spirit
- A hug can bring heeling and peace to a troubled soul
A lot can happen in a second. We can bring heeling, peace, and love to others. We can also create destruction, agony, and death. Every second matters, so use them wisely.
