Inward

I spent too much time
in my shell that when I came out,
the world I was born into had left
and I was an alien in the new one.

Facade

We see these things
we live these lies
we die these days
wondering if it was
worth it.

Living

To gaze upon the light
At the neck of the tunnel
You must
Embrace the hair raising spirit
Of the dark tunnel.

HOPE

How do people
Live this life
Surviving challenges
One after another.
Sometimes hope feels
Like looking towards
The end of a terrible
menstral period.

DEAR GOD

Everywhere looks the same-

old boring bundles of nothing

I’m searching, seeking,

asking, knocking, looking,

where can the glittering spark be?

That little Godly light that makes

life more interesting

more worth living

 

God! I have waited this long to live,

give me life in abundance

to live, love and fear you.

I want to live,

let me live.

 

In all Father,

may your will be done,

may your kingdom come

may I be worthy

of your kingdom.

 

THE TRUE BUT

True, I can’t see

but I tell you, I can hear what you can’t.

True, she can’t hear

but her eyes are sharper than yours.

True, his words slurs

but he can figure out the sums faster than you.

True I walk with a limp

but my mind race faster than yours.

True, I was born different

but aren’t we all.

 

Some get extension,

others get weave-on.

Some get sew-in,

others get clip-on.

Both are different

but equal in purpose.

I’m different to you

but we are equal.

 

With every part of me you call – Limitation.

Is replaced with a part I call – Possibilities.

For every mile I can not go – Is compensated for,

by the quality of meters I have gone.

 

So don’t look at me like

I’m not a force to reckon with.

Don’t stare at me like

I am a thing of wonder.

Don’t laugh at me

like I’m an animal in extinct.

Don’t pity me

like I’m a poor soul.

 

For it takes strength to be me.

It takes strength to be different.

It takes strength to be challenged.

It takes strength to be limited.

So this is the time I would say

ignore the truth, look at the but

and don’t look, stare, laugh or pity.

Just accept, love, care for,

help and encourage me

to be the true and the best me.
