A Writing Journey

Hello! I feel in the mood to post a poem today, so here we go! I wrote this one on November 21.

Sleeping softly breathing –

Your rage fueled by fear,

By loneliness and sorrow

Is spent – burnt out like a star.

Such precious life,

So still in the sleep you

Claimed you did not want.

Your brightness lights our lives,

If only you could see

That you illuminate your

Own path – there is so much

That you can be.

You try so hard –

I know you do, I see

It every day and sometimes

Your feelings feel too much

And you’ve got to let it out.

But still you smile,

You can laugh and run for joy.

You can make it if

You take my hand.

I’ll see you through this storm

And the next. Please believe

I want the best for you.

You matter and I care.

Sometimes that’s all there is.

Sometimes you will hurt

And sometimes you’ll be

So, so angry; but life goes on.

The sun will shine

Down on you, like it

Always does. The fear

Will fade to happiness,

The anger become passion.

I see the future you can

Have, if you could but try.

You’re just like any

Other boy. You learn,

You think, you imagine and

Create. You feel, so deeply

And so strongly and at

Times you’re overwhelmed

By the strength of those

Things you feel!

But you are strong –

So, so strong – and

I know you can

Handle them.

Because you smile,

Laugh and grin.

You can’t yet see

Your own shine,

But the light can’t see

Itself. Breathe deep and

Smile again. All will

Be well. You’re just

Like all the other kids,

Dreaming now of sweet things,

Sleeping, softly breathing.

You are not alone.

Take care, fellow travelers
