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?

As One

She walks in shadows

he in light

forever they are entwined

never knowing though

each one exists

 

He longs for her

she reaches out to him

their hands never touching

bodies ever apart

 

Night and day

always apart

but

continually working together

as people should.

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.

How?

How can

you explain

a loneliness,

a sadness

so pervasive

that

no words

can describe?

When

all that is left

is a hole

while

everything around

is a bustle

of activity?

How can you

explain

anguish, grief,

and strife

when

the war being waged

is within?

When all that

is left

is a pit

while

everything around

is

a merry celebration

how

can you explain

shadows –

overwhelming emptiness

when

I can’t even

explain myself?

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.

Oh Glorious Day!

Morning dawns with
wild abundance
as birds sing of its glory;
bees are filled from
its assorted candies
while trees raise its arms
for warmth

Afternoon comes gently
as the sun coyly lowers
its head;
shadows fill the earth
while activities hasten
for
a well deserved rest

Evening arrives in full regalia
as its jewelries
hover in the sky;
work is laid to rest
sweet repose is granted
until the morning light.
