I Can…& I Will…

I am lost, my dreams seem afar,

No light can I see, to lead me,
I can hear, nervous silence,
My heart, threatens to stop,
My path I am unable to see.

Many hands I can feel, holding mine,
Yet I am scared, I know not whom to trust,
I am not finished, with my quest,
A hurdle, I find always in my way,
I only want victory, it is a must.

From a babble of voices, I hear,
A strong voice, urging me on,
Listen to me, it said,
Trust me; I know what is best,
I know you, I am not wrong.

So I’ll listen, to it now,
I will not give up, ever,
I will listen, to my heart,
Do what I want, for sure,
I can & I will, that’s my mantra forever.

(The first two verses are how a friend has been feeling for the last few days… the last verse is how I want him to feel…I think he values my words… so these are my words for him….)

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
