Truth of the Journey (complete)


A year has yet passed, it is long and gone

Tears have fallen, singing heartbroken songs

Not only from what just could have been

Or the pleasing of others with works and bends

A year has changed, a grand perspective

Hurt and pain, has been very effective

The rebels in time, left a broad trail

One that may never truly prevail

Example of what can shift and shake

Danger is when your whole earth quakes



A mother & child that would soon forsake

The path that was chosen but did not take

Too much time to seek the truth

Half of the life and all of the youth

Wasted on others dreams

Because of what was and seemed

The gift of knowledge & permission to choose

Gains are imported & silence to lose

In the end there is no loyal or way to excuse


What Remains:

Memories that are so black and dark

Hatred filled until a gentle spark

Stairway goodbyes do have a cost

Regret of time that will soon be lost

Her priceless criticism

Bought only skepticism

Born of valiant stronghold

Hidden of revelry which turned her stone cold

Visions fresh of mind, forgotten, unfold

Memories return & stories will be told


As Memories Return:

Do you see the mage secrets?

Have been cleverly hidden

From the naked eye

Somewhat forbidden

Urging hostile chaos when

Disappointment set within

Dissolving faces sink into sand

Returning to Never never land

Swallow all the selfish pride

Wrapped up in the wind and tide


Memories in Vessels:

A cool night set in

The breeze is so thin

Like a sheet of ice

Slippery to entice

Cauldron stew is smoking hot…

No wait that was just a plot

Flowers once bloomed

Not long ago, as the world saw the doom

Inside this vessel, Warned so thin

Thoughts of her, they never end…


Accepting Farewell:

Colors bright as the morning sun

Orange and yellow, blend into one

Towering large in the mountain sky

Beauty beholds, tears fill my eyes

Grand round face, lifted high

Greeting the sun hello, oh my

Sunflower hearts forever in bloom

Bowing down at the sight of the moon


Runaway child in the middle of night

Leave all that is sad, frighteningly tight

Again and again, forever to run

Unable to trust or ever succumb

Her rebels in time & mother and child

Thoughts that this girl, forever be wild

Run to a safety, run to a love,

Run from the madness, is God still above?

Magical secrets, never were told

Long drives at night, shocking and bold

Held by no reason or what might be seen

The things that have happened, undoubtably mean

Life long behind, creeps into seems…

Much Love Much Life
