The Tears

We are always near tears you see...
That is..
We are not forgiven for our invisible sickness.

Hand held out in supplication

Head down and pool ed tears on dirty toes

We ask for mercy...

We are asked...

We are not forgotten..NO!
We are ignored.

Hand held out

Palm up
Head in shames attitude

Our hearts are there to see
There are only barriers there..between thine..and me.

On our threadless knees
Tattered at last
Shattered too fast
We cant find all the pieces
You kicked away
Have gone..

Palms up
Tears upon my feet
In my soul
On my breast

Pass me by
Stranger that? There were once words between you and I....

The grey comes for me
I..must conform to what you expect of me
i...I !
Must conform
Even as you walk away
Sack clothe-ed and ashless
Your assesment

Palms down
Onto the cold gritty ground
get up..stranger passing by
Take my bones so fair
Take my bones...anywhere
But here.

I have Fallen
Faded leaf of Autumn
Time,and again i waited the current chill for sweetened smile
The grip i had
I loosed at last
No longer waiting
I am being taken
Down a different stream.

Palms together
Wash the dust of earth from them
I am being taken
From this squalid beggars life
No longer bound to your old life

I am not waiting.

It important to remember your self worth
To remember to bow not your head meekly to those who cant
Or wont
Will not understand....
The pain
The injury is hidden

Stop begging for someone
To someone to understand
Your value
Your worth

Your fate is not to beg for scraps
Stand up
Wipe your tears
Hold your head up

You are Loved
You are valued
You have the strength to choose.

Choose Life.
Be well
Be Blessed

    ..are able to give such a heart felt visual with your words.
    You have wonderful gift!

    Your words are moving, esp.....I must say, when you wrote..Spiney....and the words that followed...you really grabbed me and pulled me in as you spoke to me where I live!

    You speak to my chronic pain life and you bring me to find a positive strength, a positive perspective ...for me to choose.
    Thank you for your encouragement!

  • Where you live...
    Is not where you will stay.
    Each and everyday
    You will step lively and whirl in the sun.

    Caged birds that we are
    Still sing.

    Because we can.
    Imprisoned we may be
    But it cannot stopper the voices of who we need to be.

    Only we
    Can put the cup over the candle
    Wash the foundations away
    The sand we built on after the wreckage of our lives...has bedrock underneath.
    After the Fall from Grace..or so it seems
    We ..I,seemed to think i needed to assume the palms to the sky...

    I choose..everyday
    To stand.
    "Better to die on your feet
    Than live on your knees...."
    If they wont believe you and the hidden darkness
    That hidden truth of us..
    So be it.

    Letting them go
    Letting that onus..They,placed on us
    Is not easy
    It is revelation

    Life isnt easy for the Spiney
    Harder when we make it hard on ourselves.

    Letting go isnt goodbye
    It is..
    Fare the well..
    I"ll see you when "I" see you
    Its not rejection
    Its the cessation of clinging to their idea of who you are
    A graduation
    Of to who you will be.

    You are as strong as you choose
    Your voice
    As beautiful as the Morning

  • Thank You!
    Go forth and Be Strong
    Sing ..YOUR song
    Escape the impression and live in your Terms.
    Make these terms
    Those that matter will come to terms with you
    Bow your Head to no one
    Beg..for no ones pittance of empathy
    Find the morning Sun!
