Is it okay to write about the darkness and anger that is within you but you just don't know how to put it on paper.....I seem to have problem with that.

Heart

I’ll get through it one day at a time,
I’ll climb up and reach out to a social vine.
Take up a stance and ask the lord to give me the divine.

I’m Principled, this I will vow,
I have to find a way to reveal this and be comfortable somehow.

Convincing myself that I am worthy,
Uncomfortable and insecurity disappear in a hurry,
I think this and chide them to scurry.

No longer do I hang from his every word, these days
It’ll take a second and a third. Men come and go, lots of fish in the
Sea, it’s a pity I would rather be a bird, not so wishy washy.

Grace has led me this far, I need to believe
I am one who can be on par. This I will strut and
Believe till the day I depart, for now I will learn my lesson and
Not forget to give with all my heart.

Pride…

Admitting that you need to find your way,
Is different from doing what you know you need to,
Hence finding tranquility someday

When will we realise we need the help from
The one on high, repent and overcome those feelings
Which only seem to come out late at night?

I sit and look out at a magnificent horizon thus realising,
That I am blessed, responsibility and sense of ambition, I feel, are on the rising.

I’m striving to do things I never thought of before, though
I am mindful and always on the look out for the faux.
I’m treading on higher ground careful not to like it too much,
I still have to find my own crowd.

Lord Up above I hope I find my crown, I give you yours, and am
Thankful once again for solid ground, occurrences not what they seem,
If you can hear me I offer you myself wholeheartedly,
Right down to the very last pound.

All I ask is that you remain this proud.

Reprieve

I’m so tired of ploughing through life a step at a time,
For a person who seemingly wears their heart of their sleeve,
I think I need a reprieve.

I need time, yet I am constantly yearning for something
To fill mine, uncertain of so much, I marvel that I am able to
Decide what to wear when I wake, that it matches, is something
That at least is not of the fake.

Ever confused about anything and everything, I’m the one who
Looks like she always has the answer, yet I spend my life treading
On thin ice, careful not to trample or offend, I am also the one who is left alone in the End, forever one without a friend.

Self pity this rhyme is full of, I think I’m aloud to vent,
I guess I need to perk up and find a way for Love to prevent.
Hopefully the frustration doesn’t get to me first, making me
Beg for mercy, seemingly thirsty, but still standing on one knee.

THE POEM

“This poem was sent to me in an e-mail… something that rings true and we all are guilty of”.


I knelt to pray but not for long, I had too much to do. I had to hurry and get to work for bills would soon be due. So I knelt and said a hurried prayer and jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done my soul could rest at ease.
All day long I had no time to spread a word of cheer.
No time to speak of Christ to friends, they'd laugh at me I'd fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry, No time to give to souls in need,
But at last the time, the time to die.
I then before the Lord I came and stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God held a book; it was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said "Your name I cannot find.
I once was going to write it down... But never found the time".


I’m proud to say that I believe…

Eruptions


I feel like laughing Heavenly Father,
Huge, infectious, raucous, bursts of amused
Laughter, at the astounded looks I’ll get thereafter.

A thought of all my trials and tribulations enter
My head and it makes me want to erupt even harder.

I feel like I just can’t bother anymore, like I
Need time to simply discover. The more silent you
Are the more I will vow and with each spasm I begin to
Realise just how.

I laugh away the blues, it’s mad, it’s sad, it’s baffling
And yet I can’t seem to stop. My thoughts no longer make
Me feel like I’m about to drop. Instead I am shuffling away those
Notions and I now play with the cautious.

They look out for me now and it’s like Laughter
Has washed away the sadness, in its place it leaves
Behind a sweet madness.

I don't need to be anything other
Than a prison guard's son
I don't need to be anything other
Than a specialist's son
I don't have to be anything other
Than the birth of two souls in one
Part of where I'm going, is knowing where I'm coming from
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I'm surrounded by liars everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by imposters everywhere I turn
I'm surrounded by identity crisis everywhere I turn
Am I the only one who noticed?
I can't be the only one who's learned
I don't want to be
Anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
Can I have everyone's attention please?
If you're not like this and that, you're gonna have to leave
I came from the mountain
The crust of creation
My whole situation-made from clay to stone
And now I'm telling everybody
I don't want to be
Anything other that what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do
Is think of me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms
Wondering what I've got to do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I don't want to be

Gavin DeGraw

I don’t want to be anyone else just me and I a finally comfortable with that….

Doused

It won’t leave me alone,
Its presence alive, it thrives among the strangest and the clever.
There is a never ending searching, endless hopeless feeling
And the latest of my financial dealings

They all leave me feeling spent,
Tired from trying to take on your feelings and my own,
I’m gasping for air and I feel like I’ve been drowning.

Frowning at my own absurdity, I feel like
I’ve been doused with promises of new beginnings.
Yet somehow I still look back and wonder how you’ll react.

A show of remorse is looked upon as the cause,
Is this the course you’ve carved for me, or is happiness
Always going to be halved

I keep waiting for a change, yet somehow you always
Manage to make me look deranged. I know I should
Stay out of your range, yet the more I try to distance myself,
The more you persist.

What is it going to take to stop this ache?
Do I have to act fake for you to realise what is at stake?
Who will desist first and can we exist or should we no longer
Seize to resist. Will the realisation dawn or will I be the one to,
Forever mourn.

Limelight

No feelings left to decipher, I feel
Emptied, spent and forgotten. Once again
Like a mother hen, I enjoy the dishing out of advice.
This I will do till I can no longer hear his voice.

The images and the memory of what could have been,
Plagues my thought and leaves me a little taught.
I’ve felt numb, been left dumbstruck and then
Stripped and became stark.

I’ve laid my soul bare, it was definitely part of a
Dare, I didn’t expect to see you there. Expectations unfair,
I have no excuse, just that I have hidden my muse. Self abuse
Is something that I have used.

A realisation of something I need to fix,
Definitely one of my life’s best tricks, still thoughts
Of you run through my mind and still I have to try to hide.
Have to protect my self against the darkness and move slowly
Towards the limelight

Detract

A mirror image something I despise,
The reflection of self enough to cause a reality heist,
A hiatus, something I am afraid of.

For vacation is of sandy beaches, blondes with babes in their finest breeches
The bearing of midriffs, topless models of perfection
Enough to excite the staunchest of preachers, and encourage
An indifference infection

The flab are never fab, always left behind and
Are ever forced to pick up the tab, hiding behind
Indifference it takes the sensitive to figure out the act and
Decide what type of tact. The attractive always associated with the physical,
The internal frowned upon and these notions we detract from.

Unable to articulate my guilt, I have to try to make amends
Bitterness at treatments I must forgive. I have to call upon naivety
Again and learn to socialise with trust. No more guffaws and no more
Disgust, in their place I have to summon Mr. Compromise and
Hold on to Mrs. Steadfast. Thus making me become the one who
Has let go of the past
