Ironically, the point at which you feel like utter shit, when you most want to give up, is the point at which you should be most proud and defiant. When it feels that bad, it’s not because you’re a failure, as you believe, but because you’re working your very hardest despite all the obstacles. It is precisely the time not to give up, because you’re just about to win this particular battle.

The Choice

Posted in Poetry, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on July 6, 2016 by becciseaborne

heart

.
I’ve had a falling out with my heart
She brought me to a dangerous yet beautiful place
I came willingly, open-eyed
But now I need to return, I find she won’t allow it
.
We are stuck here
.
So my choice is to stay with her, and the pain
Or to leave without her
She is wayward and wild, my heart
Stubborn and cruel to me
.
Yet she is wise and true
.
I’ve always trusted her
Wherever she takes me
She’s taken me to joy, pain and grief
To beauty,darkness and love
.
Never to peace, though
.
She has never taken me to peace
Perhaps it is time for peace
Perhaps we should part ways now
My heart
.
And me

Strange Skies

Stormy Skies by Marcus Sam

Things get lost
Picked up
Put down

Warm Streets
Cold homes
Strange skies

People get lost
Unseen
Yet changed

Warm Streets
Cold homes
Strange skies

Hearts get lost
Reckless
Broken

Warm skies
Cold streets
Strange homes
