Not your Average Girl (part 2)- free verse

perfection-quote

She doesn’t don’t know how to act
but with sense of urgency

She don’t doesn’t know how to care
without thinking too much and feeling too much

She doesn’t know how to be quiet and sit still and allow her mind to settle

She is always asking, experiencing, struggling and finding meaning

She is passionate and misunderstood of being finicky rather than simply striving for excellence

She is an artist, deep, creative
And not your average girl

Little Things – free verse

With every little thing you do
And with every little smile you gave
I am in awe
I am in wonder

With every little love you share
And with every little light you shed
I am delighted
I am honored

With that little thing you do
And little love you share
I am gratified
I am pleased.

P.S.

A little something to kick off our week.  What is that one little thing that makes you happy?

Fulcrum -poem

I was a ballerina
standing on tiptoes
finding balance
if i lean to right or left
i fall over
You were my fulcrum
creating stability
and equilibrium
you bring the waves
in my mind
to a halt
leading me
to my centerpoint
my stillness
my heart.

 
P.S.

Who would you consider to be your support/balance? Are they people whom you can leverage success and happiness?
If not, find some!

Time-Poem

How much of yesterday is to be forgotten
For our story to begin?

How much of yesterday is to be treasured
For our life to be remembered?

A yesterday lived in today
Is tomorrow to stay.

Change not the lapse of time
It can never be flipped up side down.

All Through my Life

I.

Mark my words, these chords I’m playing
All my life, i will be singing
All through sunshines and rains
All through hurts and through pains
My love will keep burning.

Chorus 1.

It’s like a little heaven on earth (2×)
‘Cos it’s like a little heaven on earth
When I’m with you…oooh

II.

I swear this song i will sing forever
As we grow older and wiser
All through the days of my life
All through the moments in strife
My love will be yours ever.

Chorus 2.

It’s like a little heaven on earth (2x)
‘Cos it’s like a little heaven on earth
When I believe in you….oooh

Bridge

Heaven on earth…heaven on earth..
With you….oooh…with you..

 

P.S.

This week’s photo prompt of Helene made me wanna hum a song and strum a guitar. It probably would feel so good singing a song watching those lights up and above in the sky so high, up until they become tiny little stars in heaven from earth. BUT i cannot hum a song nor strum a guitar so a wrote a beautiful song instead which i hope one day i can (or someone can ) can put a melody on it.

Stone Cold (poem)

Stone cold, that has become
Of a child abandoned at home.

Stone cold, a mother had been
Lonely, tired and forgotten.

Stone cold, a father for sure
All tide up at work, joy so unsure.

Stone cold, a family will be
If, and only they allow it to be.

Each twist in the universe
is a new experience,
a change in the
settings of our lives
adapt and live
with the change.
Adjust our vision
to the new pattern of life
set before us.

For we are, a kaliedoscope world.
