Hello lovely people. 🙂
I know I haven’t posted in a while (work has been kicking my boo-tay), but I am back to share a poem with you all!
Lately I’ve been dealing with a lot of things with different people. Situations that have been more emotionally upsetting than anything.
I’m a pretty optimistic person. I have no serious issues with or have any ill-wishes towards anyone. I am trying to live my life in a positive manner and focus on the tasks I have at hand, but of course, situations in life factor in to how we live our daily lives.
This poem is about people having a misconception about me or only seeing what they want to see, which causes them to act a certain way towards me, even though it may be based on something that is a misunderstanding. My attempt in life is to stop altering and censoring myself out of fear of my perception to anyone that is not my God.
Hello, Goodbye (Waves)
I am an island
Not in the sense that I am alone or isolated
But this fact wages on the truth that my heart’s been weighted and what’s in me has been dated
My heart beats slow
Everlasting desires of reaching new heights that YOU required
And so I did…
You, I became your work slave
You, I became your love slave
You, I became your slave partner
Unwashed wishes of a greater tomorrow placed in deep fields of sorrow
As your approval my soul seeks to borrow
100 nods of yes and 3 shakes of no
Have me praying to let go of the chains that withhold
My lone foot wrapped in bold
…chains with no locks
You kept seeking more because I gave you so much without you ever asking
I am not seeking your friendship
I am not seeking your relationship
I am not seeking your sorries
I am looking for your acknowledgement
Love. Light. Life.
That’s whose designated wife
That’s who sits with me under my palm tree
Drinking juice out of a coconut
No locked doors, no washed up shores
Me giving no more to your apology’s score
I am an island
