Beauty Scars

Published March 6, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

the deepest wounds

are my dearest friends

they follow me through till the end..

Teaching me, showing me, guiding me on..

With each gash

I learn me strong

cherishing the wrongs, the hurts, the pain

All of life is mine to gain..

I may be wiser, maybe I’m not

but I’m open to live..

pliable, limber

wanting to give

twisting and turning with all there is..

I’ve soaked it all up

abundant and full..

Life slips in

carves us to win..

the scars are my beauty

time will tell

I wear them well..

walk with me

talk with me

hold my hand

the privilege is yours to

know where I stand..

Two faces..

You look

You wonder

you question

you guess

Judging until you’re completely undressed

heaped on

the floor in a shredded mess..

I’m her, I’m she, I’m them, I’m we

and the loss of me is the new conquest..

I am now two

split through and through

No longer true to me or you

I’m buried alive

nowhere to hide..

gotta dig deep to find my feet

rolling back the ignorance

walking in bliss

Looking for what I somehow missed

Drawing back my spirit

bringing back my mind

two souls rejoined

until we are one

No longer afraid of all that’s begun..

Smile within..

I found a smile within, sweet season

coming round again..

sometimes you win

sometimes you lose

sometimes the blues settle in..

make a choice

choose..

It’s all been said

it’s all been done

both feet forward until

I’ve won..

In my quiet unbound

I shall remain footloose

While I watch life go round and round

my smile has been found..

Undaunted..

Hands down

Fists unwound

Heart open

to the sound

You will love what couldn’t be found..

No sense in fighting it –

instead, delight in it..

you’re richer because of it

Stronger in the midst of it..

Your senses thrive on it..

You’ll come to understand things not known

The unknown value unfolds

seeing the imperfect perfectly bold..

Stormy Whisper…

Published January 20, 2019 by lamarrwenrich

it’s quiet, it’s there

it’s all I hear..

Your whisper..

begins a storm

roaring like thunder through my core…

stealing my dreams

until you’re all I see

a chain around my soul

don’t set me free..

Feeling your breath touched without sound

you’ve set my heart into oblivion..

wild animal cries

drowning out what’s left of me

sinking to the depths below

places only we can go..

It’s rare, yet we dare..

Season change..

winter comes

winter goes..

Changes happening down below

as the sun is grooming

Flowers blooming

yet fear remains

It is looming..

the warmth abounds

not in this room

the chill alone blooms and grows..

deeply seeded you is all it knows

covering me in a frigid cold..

Lying here thinking

I wish for change

No longer willing to remain chained..

so much love – you’re here and there

The warmth is spreading through all I’ve dreaded

Memories thawing the icy chill..

embracing the new

as the cold brews into spring

coming with it new moments of you..

No longer focused on where I’ve been or what remains

my look is up

I’m feeling change

one step forward

Is how I’ll grow

captivated for us

Lost in the know..

Old made new..

It is all new

this town of old..

as the simple beauty began to unfold

Seeing it with new eyes

It all came alive..

It’s vibrant, it’s real

awakens my soul..

enjoying watching people living their lives

laughing and chatting or

lost in their thoughts –

moments that matter

all at a cost..

Even those less fortunate-

the ones that reside outside-

show a sense of belonging,

adding beauty to the nitty gritty of the hard life they hold,

but never told..

These magnificent old buildings – the secrets they house – so many lives passed through their doors with the many stories hidden inside

They groan and moan, as if they are waiting to share with us, the lives unknown..

The past brings me present

I am reminded once more

That home is always home

no matter how I’ve grown

and old becomes new as it filters through you..
