Just putting up a little poetry to portray the current state of my mind...
I weave a cocoon to keep me safe,
to keep the child in me alive.
I peek about with my cynical eye
to view the big bad world.
I arm myself with wisdom from years of experience.
I brace myself to wage the war
with the world and the demons in my heart.
I pour my heart and my soul
to build a new life a new world again
from broken dreams and wounded heart
and friendships gone awry...
may you be with me,
hold and guide me when i falter,
rebuke me when i go wrong
and nurture me
when the world around me falls apart...
be the fire always burning,
giving me strength to rise each time,
like the phoenix from the ashes
to brave the world with forces anew.
(Thank You, Raka)
