Into The Vortex

She’d rather be numb than feel the pain
And never feel the cold of the rain
From all of the storms that are yet to come
That do their best to make her succumb
So within her heart a vortex forms
And it will consume as it transforms
This heart once on fire to solid ice
But this new future will not suffice
To give up the pain she gives much more
All the happiness that was in store


Life’s Path

My mind wanders to the past
Things that pass us by so fast
What has made us who we are
Knowing we have come so far
Our lives we build upon what’s been
On every tear and every grin
Each person we meet builds our story
Some do it with gloom, some with glory
Our focus we must keep on the good
And not on being misunderstood
But we strive each and every day
To find the strength for us to stay
Upon this earth to experience more
Of what our different lives have in store


Yearning

Sweet musings seem to fill my head
Yet tempered each day by some dread
That once more happiness will fade
Dashed to pieces by life’s sharp blade
Those pieces then scattered by the breeze
Taken higher than the tallest trees
Out of my grasp and out of my reach
So to the heavens I would beseech
That one day soon this feeling may return
So that its loss I would no longer yearn


Sweet Escape Lost

Oh to drift into that blissful sleep
Where worries fade as I fall so deep
And mind is clear of all life’s weight
Dreams are sweet and there is no hate
To fall into such a sweet embrace
Where happiness is all that I chase
Where fear and sadness have no place
Seeking sanctuary in that space
But that peaceful bliss continues to elude me
And these long nights seem to remain a certainty


Fire and Ice

fire and ice

This is by far my favorite poem.  It’s by Robert Frost and has a lot of meaning.  Especially to me.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

This talks how about our lives may end.  How this world will end.  Will it be in passion, love and hope?  Will it be in hate and fear?

A month ago I would have absolutely side with Ice.  I have seen and experienced so much hate, fear, betrayal.  It makes it hard to believe that there could possibly be enough passion left in me or in this world to over come that.

But today I say it will be Fire.  I know.  You’re thinking what the hell is she talking about?  Hasn’t she sworn off love?  I am talking about passion for life.  I have a renewed passion to make my life great.  To live life as if there is no tomorrow.  To love my family.  To love myself.  To hold my head high.  To choose love of life over hate for what has happened to me.  To choose passion for the everyday small things around me over fear of what may not even happen.  I am choosing happiness over sadness.

I will still have times where I will feel sad or where I will feel fear.  But these times will not define me or my life any longer.  I am jaded, yes.  I feel pessimism, yes.  These things are a part of me and it will take a lot for that to change.  But they are not all of me.  I can’t allow it to consume me.
