While you are here...

You run a marathon as if it were a sprint,
Till you find your pace in each terrain.

You push your limits on another's scale,
Till you make it a race with your past.

You defend against chance opponents,
Till you realise this ain't your game.

You rest with just a deeper breath,
Till you glance beyond the finish line.

You dismiss the ache of dormant ability,
Till reason finally catches up with you.

You know all along what you want to do,
You're just too scared to say it aloud.

And that you've noticed life's hard knocks,
Only tells me you may be on the wrong path.

Defining limits...

Some things have to lie within
But where do I draw the lines,
To show where the boundaries lie?

I feel safest in the tightest circle.
But, that’s a self worn strait jacket-
As if I am the danger to begin with.

I opened up enough to let you in,
But with you came in others too,
Couldn’t keep check after that.

I’m not quite sure why I want lines –
For me or for you. For us or them.
Each bound anyway by free will of another.

I’m a part of me, us, them and then all
Tell me, how do I draw the lines,
To show where the boundaries lie? Read More......

Help.

I need to talk right now.
No, I’m sorry.
It can’t wait till you have,
Nothing better to do.
The words are ready in my head.
No idea how they got there.
But now, there is this voice,
That wants to be heard.
It is mine, not me-understand?
A new born creature I host,
That waits on the tip of my tongue,
Turns into a lump in my throat,
And sudden screams in my self.
Silencing thought. Stopping action.
Choiceless, reluctant, I ask of you.
Please listen. I need to talk right now. Read More......
