I’ve been meaning to share some more of my poetry but I keep putting it off. This one was written with a loved one in mind, though it could also apply to myself. when you find yourself living out a societal role, instead of living for you.
Lost and wandering through the valley of doubt
the mountain of Solitude looms large
I scale the face of that frightening place
now is the time to take charge!
The timid creature grows fiercer by night
as the flames of her fire glow
She breaks through the chains of the sorrowing plight
to sing the song of her soul.
