Verse and Chapter of Life

Here is a Verse in one Chapter of Life; wallpaper peeling from secrets that held on to strife.

Layers upon layers of skin found beneath; fresh powder scent of babes under grief.

For children are born with tenderness, unbeknownst to pain; look within their eyes to see rainbows past the rain.

Perhaps if I took wisdom and peeled it to its core, then I’d find my spirit and happiness once more.

Instead, my heart is tethered to the ache and break about; inside my voice is screaming, ‘shut it up and get it out!’

Tired of this depression that lingers on my skin; weathered branches of pain and long-forgotten sin.

Yet every single chapter seems to bring the old along; perhaps I might forget if I hadn’t heard the song.

Click, I hear the camera, in my mind to find the pictures; a flash into the past when everything was sure.

Walls held all the memories and closets crammed with clothes; bitterness behind me as I no longer fit into those.

Who I am in this moment, I have never been before; stepping from fresh concrete to an old and creaky floor.

It’s madness, for security, should bring the final clue, yet here I sit with brand new walls and still I’m missing you.

Foolish, I suppose, for living in the past, but there was where the happiness, I thought would always last.

Tears smear upon the paper as I type these words in vain; never will I live within the gentle peace again.

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
