The Age Old Battle…

if I were my heart,
in an age-old battle
with good ol’ mind;
and I was told to
(by me)
“get along now,
love each other”
would I follow (me)
or continue still
to uphold tradition,
and battle harder?
then simply say,
“I’ll leave that
to do tomorrow.”
will that tomorrow
ever be realized?

Poetry & writing 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.
