Black and White

black-and-white

She walks

in darkness

born of

blight and strife

the shadows

is her home

 

She strikes

at the hearts

victims unknown

million lay dying

in a wasteland

of gloom

 

Hark! The angel appears

he who is

light and bright

shining the way

to salvation

leading the way

to peace

 

She moves forward

he counters back

light and dark

where to begin

light and dark

where will it end?

Darkness

Behind

this smile

is a

sadness

so deep,

a pain

so raw

even shadows

stay away;

behind

this laugh

is a

secret

well hidden,

a resentment

so smouldering

even hell

rejects it.

Swim

with me

in these

murky waters;

wallow

in the

mud,

for everyone

has their

skeletons,

everyone

has their

tales

of woe.

 

 

Beginnings

Wrapped

in darkness

hiding

in shadows

my true self

slowly emerges;

once shy

uncertain,

doubtful

now

gaining confidence

the world

is mine

to explore,

along

with

a hundred dreams within

I know

I will reach

my goal.

 

Learning

to breathe,

to reach out,

to live

my journey

has just started

on a road

full of

endless possibilities.

I live
in
a world
of darkness,
despair,
hopelessness;
shadows
lurk
behind
every corners
negativity
threatens
my soul;
but
hope
refuses
to die
its light
battles against
the wind;
try again,
maybe this time
is
a mantra
I determinedly
cling to –
I get
knocked down
but
I
will not
stay down.

I will
rest,
I will
sit,
I will
heave a sigh,
I will
breathe deep;
tomorrow
I will
rise again,
tomorrow
I will be
reborn.

Remember Me

This is an old poem that was published in my college paper, Chi-Rho, back in 2002 (I changed a stanza though) ^_^

Remember me
when
the leaves
begin to fall
and
you have
nowhere else to go
Remember me
when
birds
fail to sing
and
joy
can not be found
Remember me
when darkness
envelops the land
and
monsters
terrorize your mind
Remember me
most of all
when
the earth
sings again
and that
my love
helped conquer it all.
