Poems, The big thing, The Challenge....

For so Long


I have lived in a box

A safe place that you had for me

Protected from all things

Even the loveliest, purest of souls

A lonely place, no one dared to go

I decided just recently

To run, to pack and leave my friend

To discover places I have never been

To live my life by the sea

To decide for once what’s best for me.

No one cares no one chants,

No one wants me to finish this dance.

Control has been lost and I must move forward,

without permission or a promise or a life filled with sorrow

What is not fair and what you should know,

this is a happy time for me it should be, not feelings of woe.

Or sadness or regret, the things that upset.

I’m tired of decisions being made

With thoughts of what if or what not…

how about “is this decision best for me,

Will it make me happy?

Will it set me free?

‪‪She leads‬

‪She loves‬

‪She remembers ‬

‪Everything ‬

‪She hopes ‬

‪She handles‬

‪She sacrifices ‬

‪Anything ‬

‪Pachyderm tough ‬

‪Like a giant, sweet elephant ‬

Much Love   💜 Much Life
