Poem By madeline morris

Take a step in one direction,
Listen, consider, make the connection.
Choose your path and walk it,
Hear a language, talk it.
Let your own moods take you,
Don't let your sorrows break you.
Let your own heart let you,
Let your own hand feed you.
Journey to your promised land,
Forget the hourglass and the sand.
If you must take that risk,
Your walk outside may be brisk.
Make your own decisions,
Collect and store your own provisions.
Take time out to appreciate,
On your own terns, negotiate.
To exist is a gift in it's own right,
Live for the day and for the night.
Peer into the deep ocean,
Realise life is always in motion.
Breath every breathe with appreciation,
Try not to ever suffer depravation.
Those who you love hold close to your heart,
Then you will know love when your apart.

The rhythm here is good, but I feel like I should be reading this off a hallmark card.

A Stone And A Hard Place

This dilemma is out of control,
It is tearing up my flimsy soul,
I am leaving now for a stroll,
To think about filling this gaping hole.

Mission Accomplished

We have counquered the mountian,
The dragon has been slayed,
The war is now over,
Just like we had prayed.

A Developing Pattern

Set the pace,
Look at my face,
Go by the book,
Not off the hook.

Mental Torment

I am being bullied by my own mind,
I once had vision, now i'm blind,
I have ruined a strong indistructable bind,
Searching for what I could not find.

Spending Time

Can I live on it,
The sum I borrow?
Enough of it,
Will numb the sorrow.

My Happiness

You are the epitome of my happiness,
Nothing more, nothing less,
You never give me any stress,
I would help you out of any stress.
