Battles in Me #Final Battle

Battles in Me #Final Battle

I long to write love poems again,
To imagine my self in his arms once more,
Smiling all along with no sadness on my countenance.
I want my head to be filled with happy thoughts,
Of laughter, of chuckles when me and friends swim at the stream.

I want birds to hum their beautiful hymns in my subconscious,
To remind me of my imaginary country life
I want to be a child again,
To ride bicycles and race with my friends
And I wish that I could cry my sorrows away.
But I don’t want to cry, it’ll raise alarm.
A friend’s cried her sorrows out and my parents said.. “don’t be like that.”

I want to be a free bird,
And I want to be in a cage when I want to.
I want to feel at home, in this body that fights me.
I want to be me, without fear or shame.
They said fear exists in the thoughts of the future…
Maybe I went there and found my horrors.

  1. she like you
    said much the same
    genny her name
    shares the pain
    of once be pampered and showered
    and adored
    then came the mourning after
    and tears replaced the laughter
    where is he now?

  2. A fantastic exploration of the paradox that is life. You do so well expressing the myriad of emotional “challenges” we all face inside of life’s paradox. Lovely verse, dear Mariana. ❤

  5. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me dinner because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this issue here on your website.
