Within Reach

Each hurt
each pain
each bitter pill I had to swallow
became a piece of armour
until one day I realized
I was covered
head to toe
silver armour
diamond studded to ensure
that no one can get through
no one can shear past this woven protection
and within
my heart
my soul
my being are kept hidden.
I feel the sun upon my face
arms akimbo
soaking in the natural beauty
feeling it upon my soul.
Unfurling
reaching for the warmth
tears begin to pool
slow to seep
fall over slender cheek
eyes closed
head back
deep breath
taking in cleansing air
exhaling a black cloud of emotion.
Rage.
Fear.
Disgust.
Shame.
Ego.
All the things that would hold me back.
I embrace this time of change.
I embrace this time of looking back
accepting what was.
I embrace this time of now
learning anew who I am.
I embrace this time of looking forward
to seeing my dreams and reaching for them.

Lessons

Hear the complaints
see the disgust
time is passing by
when will life get back
when will normality return?
Why?
So quick everyone is
work
school
sports
art
computer
the list on the fridge
goes on and on
every minute
to the second
of every day is planned
’til exhausted
one drops into bed.
Look around
what do you see?
Look around
what do you hear?
Birds singing
clearly heard
lack of traffic
makes it so.
Streets
quiet
stores
no longer a meeting place.
Wait…..
hear that I do
sweet giggle of child
deep baritone of dad
as together they play
slowed down
spending time
with each other
learning their truth.
We have a chance
a choice
to create a new future
a slower future
where emphasis is
family
friends
life in its beauty
nature
seen now by eyes
appreciated
reclaimed.
Do not forget
or
lost shall be
these lessons learned.
