Maybe

are you sure

do you really

believe that lie

what he said

same old story

likely won’t change

stand up tall

believe in yourself

face the truth

he doesn’t care

he is lost

you have hope

future looks clear

maybe new love

maybe another dream

maybe at peace

finally freed heart

Need New Treads?

I am just not right

I feel a little off

I need to jumpstart my heart

To get my love on track

Tighten up the muscles

To lose a little fat

Calibrate my brain

To stop thinking of him

And basically overhaul it all

To reach a peaceful place

A World Beyond The Window

She stares out the window

Lost in a dream

Trying to find solutions

To life’s inequality.

A pensive look

Upon her face

She hopes for peace

And an end to hate.

She knows it will be

A long uphill climb

But the reward will be worth it

No more violence in the street

She stares out the window

Lost in a dream…

A to Z Challenge – E

The letter E…

I am sitting in my chair suddenly realizing that this is (was, technically since it is after midnight here) Monday.  I am so mixed up with my days right now… anyway.  I have a home (more on that at a later date) but I have a much larger home in the fact that I am an Earthling.  No, I am not going to talk about extra-terrestrials or spaceships.  I am talking about all of us sharing one home planet Earth.  With this pandemic that is spreading worldwide it has shown what a large community we can actually be seen as.  Each nation is a house and we are all in the same neighborhood.  I feel this could be a time to learn more about working together.  I know I have heard the countries having reached their peak and are recovering are sharing PPE and ventilators.  This planet has sustained life for a lot of years.  And I would kind of like to see it continue doing so for a long while.  We can work together; we can put the weapons down.  I am grateful to be standing on planet Earth.

Let Bygones Be Bygones

Let troubles of the past

Fall by the wayside

Forgive those who caused pain

Because holding onto it

Will only keep it fresh

And on your mind

Bring peace back to your life

Just let bygones be bygones

Move Ahead Never Behind

Ahead the trees still call my name

Traces of my dreams they still remain

Behind is all that I have lost

Friends and family what a cost

Ahead is peaceful and so quiet

Never filled with chaos and riots

Behind is where I ran away

To places I never thought I’d stay

Ahead is the path of my choosing

I know I will never be losing

Behind it is time to shut the door

And forget the times I’d cry on the floor

Ahead it is time to take the path

And bask in the glow of the aftermath

Destination You

Too many white lines
Blur my vision
Coffee is in my veins
As I try to fuel myself
My grip on the wheel
Has become too tight
Traffic is lite at 4 am
Lulling me into weariness
But the highway before me
Is the road back home
Back to you
And much needed peace
