Towards The Light

15624397185_50f8c5cd52_zthere’s a joker inside
the jumbled girl
dreaming of rebirth
to take everything she has
and spit it out

by night she disappears
but morning will bring her back

if she could stay in the light
hide in radiance
the assaulted spirit
shouting loud
visions running wild
she’d listen
and hear the calling
find the balance
avoid the fall
never blind-sighted
neither banished from home


step towards towards the light
take back my birth
hide in radiance
my assaulted face smiles
my spirit shouts loud

  1. Thank you LuAnne! I didn’t give it a great deal of thought when I wrote that line, just came out like that, but I see exactly what you mean! πŸ˜€

  2. Ginger489, Could I possibly persuade you to take part in a project that so many other here from, on WordPress are and have given their time…

    We have 140 contributions to date, and I am trying again to rope in
    as many contributors to the Poets for Peace challenge
    (in place until this the end of August). The many voices in response
    to this have been fantastic, and I’d love you to add yours (again,
    if applicable) if you can. Feel free to use an existing piece of
    writing or a new one asking for peace and/or about the troubled
    times in which we live.

    If you are interested, please leave your poem in the comments
    section of Neha’s blog and it will be added.

    Thank you –
    Your voice matters.

    ‘We are so grateful to be part of this community where poets and
    creative minds from around the world stand together uniting for PEACE!
    This collaboration is open till August 31st and we hope to see more of
    you join in!’
    – Neha
