IT’S OKAY TO HAVE A BREAK.

One step at a time One step closer Pushing beyond the limits Letting Passion fire But there come a time We all need to breath Time to pause Time to rest Even foundations are given a chance to rest Before the buildings continue You, my darling are doing so well And when it’s time rest […]

And then I realised, though I’d known it in my two decades and something years of existence, […]

FEELINGS… UNKNOWN

Day 15 of 30days30poems Lately, we’ve been trying to do right. But I recall when they said, Old habits die hard. She’s chosen a path of light But she’s breaking down, Feeling lost And wondering if she did choose right. He’s smiling up wide. Seconds later, he’s sad and all tight. Soon he’s mad and […]
