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


When

Weakness I hide, only strength will I show
My pain and suffering you’ll never know
I’ll keep on the mask, maintain the façade
With head held high, face your firing squad
I’ll be there to save you any way I can
But who will save me, where is my superman?
When will I feel safe to let my tears flow
When will it be ok to just let go


More Than You See

She still stands, stronger than you thought
Though not the outcome that you sought
For any challenge she will always rise
All those that urge her to quit she defies
She’s not your puppet led by strings
Not your slave or one of your things
And when all that she is you fail to see
Deep in her heart she will set herself free
The greatest gift you just let slip
Through your fingers and from your grip
And with another she will finally find
True passion exists for her heart and mind

***This was inspired by a wonderful and insightful post by Naima.


Poison or Remedy?

She doesn’t know what the future may bring
Is it poison or love in that sharp sting?
Her strength seems gone and yet it remains
As the toxin courses through her veins
Heart beating faster every day
Not even slowing as she lay
Her heavy head down upon his chest
And closing her eyes for a brief rest
Her heart finally quiets with his touch
To that peace he brings she’ll forever clutch


Past to Future

Tenderness and love are all I knew
In the past when it was me and you
But life never fair took you away
And on your own path you went your way
But Fate undaunted has led you back
To finally give us what we lack
For every twist that we’ve made it through
Made us stronger than we ever knew
And with those strengths we can surely last
As we head to a future so vast


Waiting For Fate

With every breath that I take
My solitude I forsake
I ache for you while you’re away
To feel your touch, to know you’ll stay
Is all I need to make it through
Till once more I can be with you
Your words are my strength for this wait
And knowing that you are my fate


Refuge

Tantalizing lips and kisses so sweet
Eyes so green that are devoid of deceit
And arms so strong to keep me secure
No harm to fear when you reassure
When I’m so close to you I will find peace
And the fears within will finally cease
And I’ll give you all that you’ve longed for
I can give you love and so much more


Perceptions

I may stumble, I may fall
I may see to lose it all
But there’s one thing I’ll never do
When it comes to a life that’s true
I’ll take the hits but I’ll prevail
I will never let myself fail

I won’t be consumed by the fire
And in the ice I’ll never tire
I will push on, my soul is strong
I will rise above all that’s wrong
I may seem weak, I may seem frail
But I’ll never let myself fail


Her Light Grows

If only you could see her now
To her newfound strength you would bow
Such a light she now holds within
That grew in the dark that had been
Eclipsing her soul for a time
In such a way that was a crime
Never should she have to hide
The love she holds deep inside
Through the world it can now be spread
To other souls that lightly tread
This light within, she shares a piece
To all of those who seek release


Within

I stand tall all on my own
Upon my face strength is shown
But deep within so much more
Lies locked behind this closed door
These words I offer are the key
For the world to finally see
That within my walls I’m still scared
That by this world I won’t be spared
For its ravenous appetite
It won’t hear my desperate plight
For it to pass me by next time
And let me continue my climb
Out of the hole of my past
So I may be free at last
