battered, bruised and chipped apart
but we are solidly rooted
grounded in love..
misshapen – with an unspoken beauty-
an inward badge of hope, courage and strength..
We stand strong
like the statuesque oak tree that weathers the storms –
as it creaks and moans in its’ twists & turns..
we -too- bend to the mighty winds – growing in wisdom, connecting and forming to other branches – until we are so solid – no force can shake us..
standing firm in our twisted stance – we are beauty –
catching the eyes of passersby
sharing feelings of great expectations and desires of hope..
wanting the old – facing the new
wishing you were anywhere but gone..
is there a difference when our beings are connected..
even after life dies
I keep learning about you..
like waking up to the smell of childhood
every sense touched
until I’m flooded with memories that make me whole..
What do I love about you..
To begin with –
you completed me – tying up my loose ends – filling me &
making me whole..
Though we tend to eat with our eyes
It is our soul that craves the nutrients
you taught me what really matters forever more..
With a concentrated effort
i’ll sync with you
finding your rhythm as life keeps changing –
I’ll hold tight
in a world that’s always moving and filled with hearts that grow cold from weariness..
Warm my bones
as i move into
fresh starts of old..
Im releasing you free
unearthing you from the ties that bind
though you don’t know you need to be
helping you see
giving you back you
You don’t need anyone to think for you anymore..
You are wonderfully, imperfectly made
The merry-go-round you live on is spiraling down
Let it out
Let it go
change up the sorrow you wear so well –
with inside joy
Let it stretch your face with laughter and
Set you free from
your light will shine in..
