Halfway through May & sunlight & warm temps seem to be sticking around a little longer than the last few months. With Spring finally making it’s presence known, I hope it’s been just as inspiring & refreshing for all of you as it has been for me! Thanks for sticking around & reading!
Measured & Weighed
I can’t breathe; Every breath weighed and measured.
Sleep, no longer a sanctuary,
But a canvas of dreams,
Painted in hues of fear, and shades of anxiety.
Hope so broken, so tattered,
Dreams stifled and shattered,
Yet here I stand, bloodied and battered
An eternal reminder that, you, never mattered.
Pushed down, Pushed around, Pushed away,
Funny how people think you’ll still stick around,
Despite all the bitterness, heartache and acrid words hurled your way,
To make it work against all odds; Only to blame you when it all crumbles away.
Burning, flaring, glaring,
Angry sparks, fiery flames,
Licking away, burning apart all that was hidden,
To make way for something new.
There’s more cracks and crevices,
Than what meets the eye.
Like beauty, truths are buried skin deep,
Farther than what judgments and perceptions can reach.
Be a wobbly noodle,
Be a string of cheese.
Be whatever it is,
You damn well please.
Let’s kick start Wonderful Wednesday with a Quirky Quartet!
Her right, my right
His right, my right,
Finally we’re banded and bonded together,
In this fight for what’s right.
For a Fantastic Friday, here’s a Quirky Quartet Quip. To friends living down South, all the best today, stay strong & most importantly, stay united. Love always finds a way and is the greatest strength that binds us all.
When legacies end and tyrannies begin,
Take a moment, take a deep breath in,
And know, that this too shall pass,
And that hope shines brightest in darkest of days.
Dazzle away, take them on,
Go on be strong, bedazzle them all.
Hope shines brightest,
When reflected in your orbs.
