Away from Life

I seek solitude Away from the bustle of life No frowns nor smile Just far away so many miles The smiles, all seem like a lie Away from life, I want to fly Yet I don’t want to say goodbye Though beneath the cool breeze I long for air Choked, I gasp for breath I want to hide Away from the tide No need for pride For in this life, I have tried And wells of tears I have cried Those were my words before I died Dead and buried, It’s dark down here I miss the light Black, the only colour I see I lack memory of the colour white Away from life I found solitude I got what I wanted Now I miss what I had I’ll be still and let the earth be my pal

Still I Rise

  Loud is the silence  as I can hear my heart beat  Fear and sorrow are all I feel  Alone, though surrounded by many  Anger and his brother, hatred,  are all they show  I blame them not as I  incited my own fiasco  Giving wings to scoffers to soar  Uncertain of what today sees in me  Wondering what tomorrow thinks of me  I take solace in my paper and pen  Life still remains, so does hope  Drowning in a pool of regret  I realise I am my only lifeguard  I sat, reminiscing on my awful past  Wishing I had a better present  Hopeful still, for the future  has many days in it  Awesome days are all I see ahead   Rocky has been the path  Yes, I have fallen but still I rise  I fell but my legs remain unbroken  I wiped sorrow’s dust off my  behind as I rose from failure’s ground  And took the first step to my  successful tomorrow
