Shed no more tears, for the darkness will fade. Peace of mind restored, for your world is remade. All has crumbled around you, but nothing has gone away. Everyone you’ve ever lost, is with you on this day. Close your eyes and breathe, feel the energy all around. Whispers caught in the breeze, familiar voices can be found. You never have to face the world, or the darkness all alone. There will always be love, and hope that’s clearly shown. Shed no more tears, for the emptiness will fade. All is rebuilt around you, with the faith and hope you’ve made.
One day, I will be free, hope becomes reality. One day, this prison will fall, and I can reclaim it all. That day isn’t today, for these chains won’t break, and the nightmare is more than I can take. That day isn’t today, for hope crumbles at my feet, and all I can feel is defeat. One day, it may not be today, but it will come my way. One day..
Chivalry before pride, honor before greed, strength to never hide, help for those in need. Hope beyond doubt, might over pain, voice to let it out, charity worth more than gain. Life in perception, truth in perspective, a code in conception, to those who are receptive.
Life is cursed by every breath I make.
Feeling so empty by the pain in which burrows through.
Muscles pulsing with resistance to each new enemy.
I fear they will soon find the breaking point.
humbled by the reality in which I cannot survive alone.
Destroyed by the fact that I will always be that way.
As with everything else in the Universe, you were created in balance. Controlled in chaos, Tempered in ferocity, Blinding light within Darkness, and Hope within despair.
Brought to the brink, afraid I might sink, but I stayed on my feet, and never accepted defeat. Devastated by luck, lacking a single buck, yet I rise from each fall, and I rise above it all. Absent for too long, fighting for where I belong, and I’m still alive, with a pledge to thrive. It hasn’t all been fun, and I almost thought I was done, but I rise up yet again, determined to fight and win. This life and all that I face, and the hope to find my place, will no longer be a delay, for this marks the dawn of my day! I’m Back!!!!!!!
Here are some updates for everyone. First, I’d like to apologize for yet another gap in posting. My family is on the move and all my resources are focused on heading to a new home. Once this move is complete (looking at July 20th) I’ll be back with a more in-depth connection and activeness. A wider range of posts, but not leaving out the poetry and quotes that people have been enjoying.
Second, Shattered Reflections: Poetry in Chaos is officially up for sale as a Paperback and eBook. Within the next few weeks, you should be able to purchase at just about any bookstore or eBook retailer. Those that use Smashwords for eBook purchase will find it free for a few week on eBook, so head there and get a copy.
Thanks for following and I can’t wait to get back to the fun, after the move.
Have Faith, do the work, accept the struggle, and it will end well.
Welcome to the greatest lie,
an illusion of freedom already lost.
A debt beyond the day you die,
life comes at an insurmountable cost.
You rent a home even when a deed is shown,
Don’t dare miss the amount you must pay.
The government charges you for what you own,
and they’re more than happy to take it all away.
If you want to have an RV or even drive a car,
You must pay year after year for that right.
Refuse to give in and you won’t get far,
a lawn ornament is the reward for your spite.
Feeling a bit sick and need some medical aid,
time to flush out the bank account once again.
Sure, you have insurance coverage in which you paid,
The added fees and copay are a battle you cannot win.
Can you refuse any of these or get around the fee?
Can you stand up and say you won’t pay?
Homeless or in jail is where you’ll ultimately be.
