2 poems from Heartsong's Poetry Diary
« on: October 08, 2018, 03:12:06 PM »
I Am and I Am Not

I am the child of long ago
traveling down a lonely road
wearing the scars of the years
on my heart.

I am  the one the years molded.

I am and I am not.

I am the young one of long ago
Journeying  through a land
that has burned my very soul.

I am and I am not.

I am the shadow of what was
reflecting off of an old heart.

I am and I am not.

I am a stranger to all who know me.

I am a thread of breath
chained to destiny.

I am and I am not without soul and
without heart.

Mirror
I often wonder about life
and the hold it has on me
The air I breathe,
The things around me
The things I see and cannot
see.

When I open my eyes from sleep
I see a little more of me
unfolding in the Mirror
called " Destiny."
