ALONE

When
You
Are
Here
Happy.

I am
Happy
For
And
With you.

Pushing
My
Personal
Happy tears
Down.

When
You
Are
Here
Sad.

I am
Sad
For
And
With you.

Pushing
My
Personal
Sad tears
Down.

When
You
Are
Far
Away.

Leaving
Me
Alone
I
Cry.

DANCING IN THE WEEDS

The
Girl
Remembers
In her dreams
Dancing alone
In the wildflowers.

The
Girl
Remembers
In her dreams
Becoming a woman
In the wildflowers.

The
Woman
In her reality, realizes
Life
Didn’t turn
Positively.

She
Now
Sees
She
Was
Dancing in the weeds.

THE RABBIT’S SCREAM

The wolves lie in wait
She crosses their path
The taunt begins.

Pushing
And
Shoving.

Claws
Fangs
Come out.

She screams
Once
Going unheard.

Death
Being easier
She doesn’t give in.

Staying
To fight
The good fight.

With battle scars
Seen and unseen
Her spirit remains unbroken.

Judgement day is coming
Soon
Free at last.

WIELD CHAIR

For some
Its a place of judgement
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

For others
Its a life sentence
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

Throw it
As far as
You can throw it
Wheeled chair
Wield chair.

From broken window shards
To broken chains
Wheeled chair
Wield chair

THESE SHOES

These shoes
Have carried
Tears
For people
Known
Unknown.

These shoes
Have carried
Prayers
For people
Known
Unknown.

These shoes
Have carried
A lifelong
Physical challenge
Of their owner.

These shoes
Have carried
Daily
Struggles
Of their owner.

These shoes
May
Have
Covered
Your same ground.

These shoes
May
Have
Crossed
Your same path.

These shoes
You
May
Empathize
But
Not truly understand.

Unless
And
Until
You have walked in
These shoes.

Until
Then
Its me
Who fits
These shoes.

YOU DON’T KNOW

You don’t know
What its like
To be me.

You
Look
From the outside in.

I
Look
From the inside out.

You don’t know
The war I fight
Everyday.

Body
Over mind
Mind over body.

You don’t know
The pain of rejection
Because of inconvenience.

I sometimes wish
I could unzip
And walk out of myself.

You
Don’t know
You, just don’t know.

AUTUMN LEAVES

Autumn leaves
When you
Scream at her.

Autumn leaves
When you
Yell at her.

Autumn leaves
When you
Push her to her limits.

She
May not
Leave physically.

But
Mentally and emotionally
Autumn leaves.
