Challenges in the sky, never ending tragedies on the ground, it’s there.
Scary eclipses in pink and blue cars, where’s the silver lining.
It’s true that things happen for a reason, but it never eases our mind.
I get stuck in the mud, sticky, yucky, alphabetical soup mucky.
The towers always fall, but the bridges never burn quick enough.
Let’s frolic in the grass, feeling it tingle and tickle under our naked feet.
The sun beat beating down on our grinning faces, teeth flashing, and hair dancing in the tornado.
Where are our worries?
Where are our cares?
They’ve flown on to heaven.
As we hold hands and ‘ring around the rosey’ the worries float out our lips into the ears of the Lord.
Why do cry when we can smile?
Everyone loves a giver, loves a helper, hates the bitter, and despises the mean.
They crave delicious chocolate liquid from the sky.
He’s no statue, but can be as stiff as the one staring at us from across the road.
*Ribbit* *Ribbet* haha keep it going.
We can’t let it stop.
The road needs to continue winding down, around the mountain.
Let’s not stop.
There is a place waiting for us.
A chance lurking
Through the scrolls of our minds
We are never done.
Never satisfied with the completed task.
Only yearning for bed bath and beyond.
I got cold
I got burned
The melting and molding, hardening my bones.
I am gone.
You say, “Where are you,”
Find me then.
Kill the dragon guarding my tower.
Rescue me from my prison.
Capture my soul and turn me whole,
Please just don’t leave me here to rock slowly against the cold wall. The slow drumming sounding in my skull gets louder as each day passes away. You say you care, yet here I am still locked and afraid of opening my eyes. It’s the hope that kills me, the burning freezing curdling my blood. Slowly drawing out any sense of self left. A bag of bones and blood is my fate.
You say you love me. Then take my pain away,
revive my dying mind,
carry me to safety
turn your lies into truths into action.
Show me what I’m worth. What’s my price? How much are you willing to pay for a shattered dream?
A tainted meal.
A broken reel.
Something that cannot heal.
Will you come by? Should I expect you soon or will I have to prune in waters so deep it consumes almost all of me. Please, don’t let me drown. I want to be found and fed, caressed and put to bed. A good night’s warm dreamless sleep, counting no sheep, just the way it should be. The way I want it to be. So, will you save me? Fight the dragon to defend me? Climb the tower to claim me? Liberate me from these confines that bind my aching soul. Because Because…
I can’t fight alone anymore, I have no more strength or zeal.
I’m just so tired
What little energy I have left to keep my head bobbing above the water is almost depleted.
Please, please come soon.
I’m not the girl in the mirror
And neither are you.
She is an illusion, put there to scare us.
But we shall not be frightened.
I am mightier than her,
We are mightier than her,
Heck, my dog is mightier!
We are real and she is not
She’s the one with the problem
Such a compulsive liar,
Who’s unable to stop.
So we have to do it.
We have to grasp the truth
And keep it close to our hearts and minds.
Embed it in our soul
And it will never grow old.
The girl in the mirror is not who she seems,
Drifting in and out of view.
Shaping and reshaping into forms anew.
Every blink is a different person
But yet the outside remains the same.
She does this on purpose to drive you insane.
With your sense of mind gone,
You become her surrogate;
Your body will be filled with putrid hate.
Don't let her lies of disdain fool you,
Be confident and hold your head up high.
Because day after day, and lie after lie,
She'll keep trying to break you down.
