Crystal Walls

Crystal Walls
I wear a mask
and build walls because
of the pain I bear. Some
walls you can see
through, some are as thick as
the night. It is the
Crystal Walls reflect
the daily burden of
blood sizzling pain. I
warn you do not gaze
to long through the
Crystal Wall or you will
find yourself flabbergasted at
how we survive each day.
The Crystal Wall does
not lie, it shows the
truth, we may wear the
Mask to hide our
reaction to the life
stealing pain, but the
Crystal Wall is ever showing.

Virtuous Patience

Virtuous Patience
Angel’s, Saint’s, Mother’s and
Some say I have it…
Patience. I’m just an
Ambivert existing in an
Extrovert universe. O, virtuous
Patience why are you
Strenuous to fully reap?
With all the noise and
nuisances of this world…O
Virtuous Patience please find
Me! Patience is often at war
with anxiety and gratification.
Inhale the incense, listen
to the wind chime, the waves
upon the ocean and ultimately the
quiet for therein lies quietly
Virtuous Patience.

Bridge of Victory

The Bridge of Victory

As I cross the bridge to
escape the darkness that
entraps me in a land that
I loathe, the bridge creeks
and moans its protest.
With tears sweeping down
my face and blood-stained
hands I inch ever closer
to the light and victory.
Pain, depression, and anxiety
want to trap me in this
land of darkness. I want to
surrender to the darkness,
but lo the light is ever
so close I can’t give up
my chance of victory. The
land of darkness tries
to twist the bridge
and make me tumble, but
I hold on for the I feel
the light of hope getting
ever closer! I will cross
this bridge of despair and it
will become my bridge of victory!
