From The Ashes

Through the chaos of her life
All the struggles and the strife
She’s risen up from the ash
Though pale and weak from the crash
The flames still licking at her feet
Despite her fear there’s no retreat
She must go on, she can’t sit still
Lest the fire consume her will
Strength is hers, she must hold it tight
So it may bring her to the light

Another Life

Take this life, I want no more
It has burned me to the core
Give me another in its place
And of this one please leave no trace
Take all the memories and the pain
And let them fade away like the rain
Take the darkness and leave the light
Carve me a path out of this fight
And for once just let me rest
Subject me to no more tests


A Thousand Times

She walks through life pretending it’s not real
Shutting down her heart so that she won’t feel
But broken pieces will try to mend
Though they will always fail in the end
For they’ve been broken a thousand times
Their jagged edges all that defines
The path of her life and what remains
A future that’s bleak and bound in chains


Safe Within

The morning light filters in
So softly upon her skin
A smile growing upon her face
For fading dreams she tries to chase
She opens her eyes, they disappear
But deep inside she still holds them near
For all the comfort that they bring
Against this world’s most vicious sting
Keeping her mind safe and whole
Despite this life’s daily toll


Missing

It never changes, everyone lies
The world will spin and everyone dies
But when we’re gone will we leave a mark
Or will our lives fade into the dark
Would anyone notice when I’m gone
Or would they forget me with the dawn
If I stepped back from all I know
Would they notice I didn’t show
Just a shadow upon this life
Finally bowing to all the strife


A quick note

Merry Christmas

I just wanted to write a quick note to say Merry Christmas to everyone! 

I have quite a bit to do the next couple days so I will likely not be posting, at least not much.  I also wanted to let you know that I have created a new blog to get back to writing about myself, Diary of a Jaded Heart.  I will, of course, continue on with my poetry here, the new site is just to get back to discussing my day-to-day life and the issues I run into.  So, if you care to follow my ramblings about life, feel free to visit and follow.  For the rest of you who are more interested in poetry, stay put and I will continue to post here as well! 🙂

So to you all, have a good holiday weekend, this year is almost over and soon we get to start a fresh year!


Accepting

original By Colin-47 via Flickr

I want to be free of all this pain
To remove this shackle and this chain
Tired of my heart being filled with doubt
Tired of hearing my soul scream and shout
I want frustration to disappear
From my life so that my future’s clear
But as each problem seems to fade
Another in my life is made
There is no escape from the strife
I must accept it’s part of life
