Conflicted. Progress. Process.

Conflicted

twisted

contorted

and bent

Energies shifting

and drifting

emotions all spent

Wringed and winged

and squeezed drip

drop

dry

Ripped,

stripped,

and torn

broken

in unspoken

choking on try

Do

or do not

Try does not exist

Choose

or choose not

step away from inner rift

Play in the mud

Enjoy every stain

Understand the pies that you make

came through the falling of rain

Speak

or be silent

but select despite all of your fear

Invite light into your darkness

shrink shadows

make sorrow disappear

Create

in your universe

a meaning for be

And live life fulfilling

the world you want to see

(c) 2010 L. Ashwood

  1. Every line of this speaks to me, and I like its versatility (in that it could address different stuff). Its the kind of piece I could read over and over again.
