A New Awakening


I look towards the fire and wonder
You know we can't get away...
Because I'm calling your name...
Everyday i feel this pain...
But you just turn and walk away...
Its like no ones there...
I turn and look up...
But what i see...
Doesn't faze me...
I have that feeling of despair...
People ignoring me...
But in the end walking away was all i could do...
Knowing that theres people that love me puts a smile on my face...
I look towards the future and wonder...
Is there a purpose? ...
Is there a reason? ...
I can't help but see...
That even though i only have a few people that care...
It still fulfills my heart...
Ill always have them...
There are a few people that i wouldnt walk away from...
Just look up were your standing...
Jump up reach the highest point...
I have no worries...
Life will get better...
The tears i cry wont matter in the beginning...
But in the end that tear that falls wont be the last...
Just knowing theres a reason im put here...
Makes me feel accomplished...
Wishing upon revenge for the people that do us wrong...
Won't make me stronger...
Forgive and forgetting...
Just doin me...
Not having anyone tell me how to feel...
In the end without that person...
Well be good in the end...
Walking away was the best thing i could do...
Start over...
Have a new beginning...
Making life how u want it to be...

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
