TRANQUIL… a poem

Shallow are the graves of the discontent

The lonely denizens of a hapless world

Hiding in plain sight of the overachievers

Unnoticed, unsolicited

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But, don’t have pity for these

They are unencumbered by the chains that bind

Removed from the chaos around the status quo

Free to live without judging or judgement

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

With ease they rise and move to another place

Wiping off the dust without disruption

Unburdened, unrestrained

Tranquil

REFRAIN

My veins are longing

Longing to be filled

Into expansion

To grow and share my all

And all that I can be

Gentle, small beginnings

Getting stronger every day

Soaking in the nourishment

Soaking up the rays

My color deepens

And with every drop of rain

I live

Until the Fall

Then I refrain

FROZEN POTHOLES

FROZEN POTHOLES

In the desperation of my folly

I’ve climbed a mountain of regret

On this trapeze of the life I’ve lived

All, without a safety net

###############

My head up in the clouds

Not seeing what’s in front of me

Unfulfilled and broken promises

Frozen potholes on the sea

################

Yet, here I stand just like you

With years under my belt

Time and again I still stumble

But no longer do I melt
