Never Giving Up

To Life

Folder: 
Life

Heres to never letting go.

Heres to never giving up.

Heres to second chances,

and second guessing.

Heres to hoping that one day things will be different.

 

Heres to taking chances, 

taking risks 

and taking a different path. 

 

Heres to being wild

Being free,

Never growing up.

 

Heres to happiness,

laughter,

love.

 

Heres to this beautiful life.

Binding A Heart

 

 

Binding A Heart

 

beneath the shadows of memories that linger
her heart silently gathers its broken pieces
shaping then into a mold of what a heart should be
tightly binding it with necessity
placing her dreams carefully inside the weave
tying a double knot at threads end
hiding her truths deep within


and for a moment she finds her smile
finds hope within her world
finds peace in the whole of who she is
and where she has been
while trying to leave behind all the places, faces
and pain that have carved out her days
for far too long


she etches her new found freedom
across everything she sees
writing a new melody
wanting so desperately to sing a new song
to sway to a new beat
to find a new dream to dream


but days, months and years always
circle back again and again
and the same faces, places and pain
begin to bleed into every stroke she makes
every step she takes
and her smile fades
as the string breaks
spilling pieces of her heart
across all of today


defeated once more she falls to her knees
and there beneath the shadows of memories that linger
her heart silently gathers its broken pieces
shaping then into a mold of what a heart should be
tightly binding it with necessity
placing her dreams carefully inside the weave
tying a double knot at threads end
hiding her truths deep within
