For so long
I stood
gazing into the abyss
wishing for
a swift wind
to blow me away.
The darkness
but I was
unable to take
the final step.
Now through clouds
dawn breaks
and my legs
move at last
in the other direction.


Little flower
from the ground
with power
far beyond
your gentle appearance.
withstanding elements
defying odds.

If only outside
revealed what lies within.
True beauty is found
beneath one's skin.
A perfect face, unworthy goal.
I prefer a gorgeous soul.

The story
of euphoria
has yet
to be written
but I am smitten
with the thought
of encountering
that feeling.
Am I revealing
too much?
So out of touch
with the notion
of knowing
that emotion.
I am yearning
to start learning
how it might feel
not to conceal
this burning desire
the ceaseless fire
in my soul.
My only goal
is growing
and knowing
the story of me...

Life in Motion

Wax and wane
as days roll past.
Tender moments
never last.
Terror unbound
the die is cast.
Now unfurling
way too fast.
Must make way
for what is near.
Ceaseless challenges
rife with fear.
The past is gone
the future unclear.
Breathe in the now
for you are here.

Just Breathe

Interminable days
and the blackest nights
seem like death
come to life
but please believe
you will survive
for hope is life.

Little Bird

Little bird
fix that wing
find your voice
and sing.
