Me And You - Poem by Hazel Durham

Avalanche of a thousand dreams,
Engaging, raging at lifes torrent of bad luck,
Like muck it sticks and dries hard,
Like been dealt a bad hand of cards,
Wishing to wipe the years away,
Let this be my bright new day,
Grasping for a lifeline to my innermost desires,
Buried so deep now they are like an extinguished fire,
This will be quite a leap,
To unbury the hidden treasure,
Gold tarnished, ready to be varnished,
Escape into the world of arts,
Magic hand in hand with hope,
Skies eternally blue without shades of you,
Just the sun beaming down on a beautiful view,
Searching for me the inner you,
Like I'm intelligent but then you act the fool,
Complex my soul divided,
I don't know who I am,
I'm so undecided,
Artistic wanderings welds us together,
Like the sun greeting us good morning,
And the moon says goodnight with its veil of darkness,
That can hold a warning.
As I frantically search,
Embracing the goodness and loveliness,
Passing the belonging test,
No more fight I have found the serene light,
For my world inside my shell,
Is bursting open to the sound of a beautiful bell.
