HOPE

Wide open spaces beckon Come breath Come sing

CASTAWAY

Behind the eyes of a castaway Lies the heart of a seafaring maid Born for the great wide open Shipwrecked in fear and shame Her heart dreams of sun dancing on water Like before, when she was sure and brave Now, buried in regret and sorrow That speaks down to her hope in this fray Tempted to give up the ‘morrow While she struggles … Read More CASTAWAY

THE LONELY

Turbulent Ocean Tossed about sea The sound of the heart Inside of me Seething and sighing Through night and Through tears The sigh is deafening The lonely is a prison sentence And I hold the pardon This is the only home I know Alone Unknown Bowing to a whim That’s not my own I can see me On the other side of decision Me … Read More THE LONELY

FOURTH WATCH

There’s an ache that keeps me up at night That wakes me In the deep of the fourth watch The silence is deafening Empty Quiet But I’m not alone I can feel Him Present Very near He’s there Keeping watch over my heart Keeping watch over the ache in my soul The loneliness that owns so much of me The unknown in my life … Read More FOURTH WATCH

ANGER

The darkness of anger It’s what I feared Feared that if it spoke Would rage Would resent Would never stop Photo by Lucy Chian on Unsplash The silenced ones They disappear Into the dark Familiar, horrible comfort Of hiding Photo by Tim Mossholder on Unsplash Righteous indignation For the dishonor Of hearts Of love Without respect Such deep dishonor Photo by Maxim Tajer on … Read More ANGER

UNCHAINED TONGUES

Unchained Tongues, is poetry with a purpose. There are stories of the bruised that cry out to be known. Voices that have long been silent. Lives untold, squelched by shame. Now, shame gives way to dignity in suffering and pain, hope in captivity and celebration of resilience! To honor the sacred, validate the truth and to release the cry of the wounded heart so … Read More UNCHAINED TONGUES

WALLS

If those walls could talk They wouldn’t sing but weep Of days gone by Of a secret kept A girl who mourns While a mother slept Wept herself Of the terrors deep Within the closet of her own skeletons Childhood hunger Never fed Her sunken hope In a sea of pain If those walls could talk Rage runs deep in them Despair Hope deferred … Read More WALLS

MY LOVE (A Captive’s Song)

In the night watch My love is scaling the wall To come and find me To come and hold me close In the Darkness His love is shining the light To my freedom To the end of night And my eyes are looking for him And my heart is beating wild for him And my life is nothing without him Oh my love, oh … Read More MY LOVE (A Captive’s Song)

HANDS (A Tribute to My Mother)

Day by day She served and mourned Such pretty hands Such sorrowful form Eyes deep with hope lost Such hope lost for herself But saved for her babies Oh when she looked at them Hope alive With promise Told them of a confidence She did not yet process But one day would Fierce and strong Would not relent A woman’s heart A well of … Read More HANDS (A Tribute to My Mother)
