Hiding

A charade we all keep, A mask we all wear, We camouflage, We hide, We do it all to dissemble and disguise. We shy away from our inner selves, Sheathing it below a protocol mire, Cowardly wavering , Fearing the wrath, Quivering in fear at being an outcast. As days go by, The inner You,… Continue reading Hiding

She lived to tell

Pages of life, Turning one by one, Each telling a story. A story of love, A story of hope, A story of braving the odds, A story of fighting the twists of fate. But the tale does not end here, How the odds were overwhelmed by a lone Braveheart? Whose hand none held. She was… Continue reading She lived to tell

Her story

If you look on the sidelines, In the dark corners, You'll find her, Hidden by her mane, Her nose in a book.

And a flood of tears… Continue reading She’s all light and wonder

Mystical-Word of the Day Challenge

The enigma, The mystical aura, The halo bright, It was to be awed, As all stood surprised. She was not to be seen, She was veiled with shrouds tight, She was hidden under covers of ritual, She was incarcerated for what she was. But the Braveheart she was, She did not give up hope, She… Continue reading Mystical-Word of the Day Challenge

A wish

I wish to see the world, I would leave through the front door of my mind, Without one single glance behind me. For the sky hangs heavy on my shoulders, I feel claustrophobic, Like I have forgotten how to breathe. As the distant thunder rolls, I long to see where it roams. To feast my… Continue reading A wish

Haiku:Walking with life

Losing myself, Walking under the life willows, I did not feel sad.
