TearsOnce, there was a child
who didn't know which way to turn
She just sat there staring
watching her village burn.
She didn't run from the fire
Why should she run?
She was watching her people die
Soldiers killing them for fun.
She didn't scream like the others,
or even run for her life
She didn't grab something to defend herself
too filled with strive
She just sat there in silence
Tears rolling down her cheeks
Watching the soldiers kill her people
Hidden behind a pile of old bricks
She could not scream
She could not run
She could not cry
She could only wait to live,
or even to die
The fire was burning nearer and she knew she should run
Either be seen by the soldiers
or burn like the sun
But she never moved from that place
Fear and sorrow in her heart
The fire soon reached her
Burning her body and soul apart
She didn't feel any pain
Her final tear dropping on the floor
And then darkness finally took her
And she felt no more...

Wara lonely heartWar8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
a lonely song
a lonely tear now that peace gone
a tortured soul
behind fearful eyes
having to be all that you despise
a dying hope
a raging hate
that you must fight while leaders debate
that you must die for other men's quarrels
the tears of a dying warrior's sorrows
A girl named SorrowA girl named Sorrow5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Give me your hand, said Love
and I will take it all away,
I will give you joy for ashes,
a heart of beautiful array
So Sorrow looked upon him
her heart filled with death
Can Love possibly heal me?
she murmured in a whispering breath
Pain had always been her friend
Darkness is what she knows
Alone, who could ever want her
Her friend, Lonely, had told her so
But Love was so inviting
His warmth pulling her fro
I will love you as you are
To you my heart I want to show
So Sorrow stretched out to him
Hand-in-hand with Love
Take me from this place, she said
Beyond the clouds above
So Love finally embraced her
His beloved, that was she
Your name is no longer Sorrow, he said
It's Loved. You're loved by me
My TestimonyThis is something I wrote to indicate how I felt 6 years ago. I wasn't a very happy person and life didn't have any pleasure for me at all. I wasn't depressed, I just didn't see the point in life - you're born, you grow up, you have children and then you die - Whoopidoo. It just seemed a bit futile to me I guess, having no real purpose and having a meaningless existence. I wanted to really live a meaningful life and it didn't matter to me if I became the most successful and richest person in the world - that still wouldn't give me meaning, that still wouldn't satisfy me.My Testimony2 years ago in Letters More Like This
So I wasn't happy. And then my mom decided she wanted us all to start going to church. I wasn't too happy about this either, knowing that I'll be dragged out of bed early every Sunday morning, but she didn't give me much of a choice so I went.
It was dull and boring - and it was almost like torture sitting there every Sunday - but still some of the words the Pastor spoke sunk in ... I had always wondered about Go
Fearful DanceIn tranquil moves he bears with meFearful Dance5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
As I struggle to find the flow
With loving grace He takes my hand
To teach me that I might know
With bladed eyes he directs the path
Turning my gaze in the right direction
With soft swift moves his legs turn mine
So I can see him in my reflection
With worthy arms he catches me
Before I strike the ground
With careful hands he lifts me up
His depth giving sound
With loving comfort his gestures flow
As he gracefully starts the dance
In tranquil moves he bears with me
As we finish its opening stance

fell on me with beauty.
Overwhelmed I look away.
And Your warm welcome hands
consume me with passion.
My heart struggles to stay.
I'm overwhelmed by Your love.
It consumes me and You.
Slowly You break my defenses.
And with each loving touch
Your love seeps through.
Consuming my heart and my senses.
Unhesitant, You give Your heart.
You give me all of You.
In this place I lose myself.
I can't say no to You.

where your tears are wiped away
How does it feel with your joyous smile
where the lights dance around and play
How does it feel to see Him
where His source makes rivers sow
How does it feel to have no death
not to feel its rotting flow
How does it feel to be alive in death
to be perfect in all your ways
To inhale His passion with your very breath
in His arms beyond all days
How does it feel to not be here
many following the siren's call
Where children yearn in the streets for love
chasing tears as they brace to fall

pulling out the threads
of your naked wounds.
And as the darkened holes open again,
I'll lay My healing heart inside of yours,

as its loving tears drown your pain,
making your heart beat with Mine.

on that dreadful day
On that day You showed me Grace
That someone like You
would be pierced through
for my sin, my filth and my disgrace
So I thank You God
with not only words
but with love and it falls short
of all You've done for me
how You set me free
You gave me love
and gave me hope
For You are worthy
Oh so worthy
For You are worthy
Oh so worthy
You are my love
my only hope

For all that's lost, for all I've gained
for all the blood on my hands that's stained,

The Sun's RaysThe sun rose high from its coveringsThe Sun's Rays5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
near the world's end
It stretched its rays like open arms
and looked upon his friends
With open eyes I see the day
my heart cracks heavy sighs
The days are long, dull and gray
it's the sun that I despise
The sun has dealt a heavy yoke
being too much for me
The load has crushed away my joy
pitiful groans are all I see
Oh sun, oh sun, please do not shine
in evenings I find my rest
Flee away and cease to rise
at night I am at best
The sun just set its shine on me
Don't you know, little one?
It is not I who took your smile
it's in your heart that death began
You chose not to smell the flowers
as they bloomed for you each day
You refused to hear the songbird's song
you had painted them all gray
You didn't see the children's mirth
as they played their joyful game
You didn't feel your lover's glance
every day was just the same
You did not see the vibrant color
of the butterflies and dew
I did not steel life's joyous glow
the thief of that was you

wishing that the wind would be gone
that she could feel her body no more
she opened her mouth
her heart pleading
that she sing her song once more
she held out her hand
to the treacherous snow
forgiving it as it fell
so she forgot of herself
and sang to the trees
giving life as her syllables fell

BetrayalAs I write this letterBetrayal5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I am consumed by my own hand
I believe the lie I utter
A treacherous maze is the heart of man
I walk this road with my own staff
I direct the paths I take
I raise my long prideful nose
and blame God for my mistakes
I strike at others with my hands
and kick dust into their eyes
I taunt those who do perceive
I bring the flow of my demise
I uplift myself into the sky
not knowing that I will fail
When I hit the dust I'll surely die
My own heart brings my betrayal
Dress of WordsAs I skip around in my dress of wordsDress of Words5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I look at the lace of my gloves
It was torn and shred and covered in char
scorched by the hands of past love
And as I gaze at my shiny blue shoes
I smile, In remembrance I glow
For I still wander in treacherous lands
seeing sorrow that no one should know
But with a clappity-clap my feet move on
and I dance as the sorrow falls down
My hand still reaches for the sake of my love
rain can't stain my white linen gown
With scarred hands I bear fingerless gloves
and I reach out to whomever I please
For I remember one who danced in the rain
and showed me to dance, just as he
