Today I felt the urge to write something different.
I used to love writing poems. It has been close to a decade since I last wrote one though. I was a single woman at the time. Wow, time flies!!
Coincidentally, during the time of the last poem I wrote, I was trying to find myself. I was figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life.
I find myself in a similar situation currently. I have no idea what tomorrow holds for me in virtually every aspect of my life here on earth. (Praise God for my absolutely amazing hubby and wonderful son that I have through it all, which I didn’t have 9 years ago!) You might recall me touching on this in one of my past posts, Searching For The Right Shade.
But I digress. Today I felt led to renew the poet inside of me. Please enjoy the read and I would love to hear your thoughts! May God forge diamonds out if us all. 🙂
She entered into darkness
The room gasped at the new sight
One powerless and frozen
Handed a child, scared and helpless
A scream pierced the silence
The figure ran from his spawn
Engulfed in arms of strangers
Her world was ruled by compliance
Loneliness imprints with fear
Fear is the friend of the weak
Save her from desolation
Bring her out of this voided sphere
Roots run deep in drought and winds
Shells made dazzling by harsh tides
Queens are born in war, not peace
Endless pressures will forge Diamonds
Fire rises in ashes
Want shan’t hold back her spirit
Hell hath no fury or wrath
As a woman lost in masses
She laughs at the infinite storm
Within her grows unending
Passion and life eternal
Strength comes out from the anguished form
Teach us your ways, oh daughter
We learn from your example
No longer shackled by life
Drought has brought out living water
Light embraces her demise
The room morns at the lost sight
A child holds her frozen hand
Her powerful spawn stands strong, wise.
