I Survive

Throughout my life

I fall

I rise

I live

I learn

I survive

Against life’s tapestry

Taking forward strides

In my darkest moments

I stop

I retreat

I isolate

I cry

I still survive

Detours, destinations, love, loss and lies

Along this unforgiving path

Alone or with allies

I keep trying

My journey started with trauma

I have looked evil in the eyes

I have overcome those that tried to take my life

I have been abandoned

Completely cast aside by those that gave me life

I have prepared to die numerous times

I have been cut apart

I have been embedded with foreign parts

Broken, stitched together and cauterized

I did survive

But along the way

I have experienced many wonderful times

I have seen a child brought into this world

I have held the hand of someone leaving this life

I have felt a love that never dies

I have seen the world through someone else’s eyes

I have laid under a million stars across the night sky

I have been lost and found

I have found my voice

I have realized my strength

I have learned forgiveness

I have seen many beautiful scenes

I have survived

Across this fragile thing called life

I stand

I live

I fight

These scars represent the battles I’ve won

The pain serves as my battle cry

A warrior

I ALWAYS SURVIVE

 

What do you see
What Do You See

Landscape


Igniting fire
The landscape of her geography
Running wild
Beautifully free
Mesmerizing spirit
Sexual promiscuity
Running from judgment
She sets the world ablaze
Trail of heartache
Satisfaction
And
Misery
Her journey
Her memories

Season’s of Love


Falling into you
Cozy warmth
Against autumn breeze

Tangled emotions
Like crimson and orange branches
Piled under trees

Your breath
Like sunshine on my skin
Cascading light
Across time
Inviting growth for nature
Calling me back into your arms

Season’s change
Reminding me of the possibilities

Love on the air

Floating between
Dropping leaves
To grow anew come spring

🖤

Love can change too

Awakening

A spiritual awakening
Clarity arrives in waves
Transcendence
My mind
My body
Realization
Inner peace
Living
Breathing
Connected
My heart
The sea
Answers wake
Questions dive deep
Mental calmness
The ocean and me

Nightmares

https://wp.me/p4GrIP-e9V

In the shadows
Lurking
Waiting for me
Seeking my solace
Destroying my peace
Night turns to horror
Serenity eludes me

My demons
Reeking havoc
Damaging clarity
Risking sanity
A constant battle inside of me
