Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)

The Promised Land ~

“NON-SEEKING!” a poem – to celebrate the eventual end of another Friday! 06/21/2019

I’l-just-GO-WITH-THE-FLOW;

Who knows-where-that-will-go!

Just two steps ahead – and one step back!

Do it again! For-nothing I lack!

I’ll do my best!?* * – another’s-idea-of-BAD!

I’ll let THEM judge! I won’t be sad!

For, I’ve had so much – of-sad, based-on-YOUR,

IDEA OF PERFECT, your-idea-of-“pure!”

I AM NOT pure; I am not vile;

I’ll always walk an extra mile,

To see your face -and touch your hand,

Hoping to experience “your promised land!”

And, if that do[es]n’t-work, I’m still OK;

I’ll wait! I’ll wait! for another day!

Then, I’ll-try-again, and HOPE FOR NAUGHT,

For nothing here have I sought!

Slipping away ~ sad thoughts

Slipping away from life

What is it about life, one moment you believe the journey meant something. Then along comes that time when it crashes around you. The realisation of hurting is just to intense as you stop breathing cause you’re hurting with a broken soul. Like shattered glass cutting deep, suddenly you can see all was in vain. You’re best wasn’t good enough. You’re not good enough. Life starts slipping away. Sleep is escaping from from the misery of knowing you failed again. Thoughts from yesterday.
