Ugly Beautiful

Published October 26, 2017 by lamarrwenrich

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..

after life dies..

It’s me

wanting the old – facing the new

wishing you were anywhere but gone..

Beginnings.. endings..

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..

you will

Warm my bones

as i move into

fresh starts of old..

A Ray of Hope

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

Jump off

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 cage..

your light will shine in..
