Here's a new poem I wrote about a month ago. Just a fun, short one. It's called "Clean Slate". Hope you like!
I wrote this poem when I was in the midst of a really bad bout of anxiety. It is about my personal experience with mental health issues and the shame I used to feel about them. My perception of myself was so skewed and I felt very unloved at the time, but I am recovered now and just hope to help anyone who is feeling this! If you fight for the Good, it will always win more than the Bad ever will!
The woods sparkle tonight With lightening bugs, they say But if I had to I would Name it magic, anyway
I ponder love I’ve lost And love yet to be consumed Imagining adventures That have yet to be presumed
And life is but a wave In which joy will ebb and flow But here inside this sanction You would never even know
Gratitude possesses me And fills me with it’s light As the flames dance And the stars glow And the woods sparkle tonight
The woods sparkle tonight Bouncing sweetly tree to tree But the river isn’t bothered And it carries on dutifully
I’m reminded of my youth That so-called simpler time But the hands that made life less than simple Now, are only mine
I call upon my wisdom As it seems to reside here In nature’s own sweet stillness And her chaos without fear
And time will not stop for anyone In her reckless raging might But the embers still burn And the earth still turns And the woods sparkle tonight
