Is this ok?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi Ladies, how are you all? I was going to include this poem in my 'Comfort in Posts' post...firstly apologies this is long, I hope it's ok to add to this forum. Is a poem I wrote a few years ago & thought it seemed apt for this current situation.

I Think...

i just sat quiet watching the clouds go by

i saw life in those clouds, just passing & drifting

taking pen in hand, I added to my diary the thoughts

no substance has my days & sleep only to pass time

i dreamt of another world as I cradled my heart

today, I think I will die

am too tired now to ask why...

i entered every day with dissatisfaction

this existence a picture unpainted, devoid & empty

all the dreams circling within a locked mind

too far away & out of reach are all the options

through all this, rebirth will finally come

today, I think I will die

tomorrow, with wings I will fly...

gathering all I now have, together the pieces easily fit

confessions will say goodbye, quietly close the door

once only thought, this reality has become mine

newness through another life, you guide my steps

open up & release the person once lost

today, I think I will live...

with acceptance, myself I will give

I have written many poems over about 20yrs, all very different in style & mood. Is a relaxing outlet to quietly express what is, should be or could be. Take Care xo
