pulled to bleeding extremes
pulled away from one’s dream
how close we travel to beyond
how horrible one’s life is pawned
tightrope walking on the sill
there is no magical, happy pill
held ransom by love so misunderstood
shaped and tangled driftwood
when will it end, who will bend
how many awful moments will you spend
wandering lost, no release
when will the fighting ever cease
the remedy is not simple
ripple effects leave a horrid dimple
what you say or what you don’t
consequences say I won’t
on the outside viewing in
you say stand tall, stick out your chin
you are not the one who will receive the blows
you have not wandered where the shadow shows
the fear is deep, the joy replete
there is no hope, only defeat
do what I say or you are on your own
so this is the path that I must own
That’s a nice version too. She got a solo section. Cool. 🙂
thank you for the info! May you have a blessed 2014 !
The deepness of fear
yes…fear is tremendous…I do not yet know WHY we struggle so to allow the LIGHT in!
🙂 That’s why we need JESUS
Hello Jane: It’s wonderful to see your beautiful work again. I’m unable to reply to messages at the present time. My hard drive crashed a couple days before Christmas. I’m currently using my iPad and am grateful to have it, but I sure miss my PC.
My thought on letting the light in is that we’ve built walls for so many years, that it has become our routine response. It’s difficult to part the gates and show others who we really are.
dear Sheri, What you have written about “our routine response”–so true! that makes a great deal of sense! Hard to breakdown the walls. You honor me so much with your kinds words about my writing! Sometimes I feel so depressed and about ready to quit…then I try to write even when I am so hopeless…and then I feel badly when I am not able to put LIGHT into my writing—I do not like to leave a hopeless note…I do not want to add to the depression and sorrow of others…I hope that I do not. But then again, I also think I have to write honestly–and maybe, that honesty puts light out there to others…to see how depression works…so that a bit more understanding will develop towards those who are depressed. I do not know if I am making sense. All the same, thank YOU for YOUR PRESENCE on my blog and for your encouragement, Sheri!
That was too good….Just relating words with my own. Happy New Year 2014….to you and your family. Love n hugs
dear Kamlesh, thank you for your visit and your words! Happy New Year to you and your family! All the best to you! Love n hugs returned!
Amazing and clear words.
