Poem #2

Time is so fleeting
Years have passed by
Wandering in gray mist
Nothing everlasting is left

But to struggle alone,
Is the worst pain of all
Consumed in fear
Gripping so tightly
To that which you never had

So let it go
Feel the absolution
The kind of freedom only truth gives
The kind that really lasts

Pray for strength
Become who you should be
Do what you must
See that help is there
Always within your reach

Unending love,
Abounding affection,
Are your inheritance due

Qualify, 
Let Light become your goal
And only then,
can you share your true soul.

Poem #1

A hurting heart
Fragile, and full of scar tissue already
Waits and wonders
What will come next?
Too afraid to mind real life
Stuck in the fear of the unknown

So close, and yet so far
Timing is everything they say
Put away childish things
And just do what is right

Broken, in pieces
Swallowed up by the darkness
Searching for some light, some hope
Some oxygen in my lungs

A deep breath finally comes
One small drop of peace, even only for a moment
Kind words, whispered to my mind
Then gentle stillness, so sweetly alights

Honesty, love, and supplication
Give way to possibility,
Hope for a better, brighter season

No sweet release though,
Only advancement makes us grow
Time to build, to cultivate, to comfort and console
The Reason to become unburdened
To really live...and to be able to feel His love.
 
...A hurting heart can mend.
