Time’s Retreat

I have to wonder
as I listen to people talk
if truth is there
beneath all the uttered lies
deceptions
misconceptions
wound amongst
feet of those marching
ivied trendrils
tripping
denying
accuracy of facts.
Eyes wide open
no longer can we hide
where evil is found
light must be shone
casting doubt upon
those in authority
those in power
who corrupt the congregation.
Building walls
of stainless steel
fitted with cutted glass
knees slashed
if any try to escape.
Building concrete enclosures
blinding
justice
who roars
discontent
muzzled suddenly
when those dislike her speak.
We begin to count
down
no longer up
for the fall of time
the desperation of those
dialing weapons
to keep in power
a diseased mind
syphilitic
lost in an imaginary world
living an era
that no longer exists.

New Year…..New Me…..New Decade….New Everything

I watched the sun rise
faint pink blush
golden pulses fill the sky
hues of purple
sense of serenity
sense of peace
finally here
in my happy place.
I struggled.
I abused myself.
I tried to hide.
I am not that little girl.
I am not that frightened teenager.
I am not that beaten/destroyed woman.
No longer afraid…..
of what life has to offer.
To dream.
To love.
To chase what I want.
To be me…..
Writer.
Mother.
Daughter.
Sister.
There is more to me
than these four facets…..
there is adoration
there is pride
there is determination…..
I leave behind me
a decade/life time
of pain
of anger/rage
of despair
of thoughts no longer there.
I begin this New Year
this New Decade
strong
beautiful
and solely
100 %
Me.
