There is peace here

Standard

There are moments when one is at peace
driving along a busy road
where sound is not noise
where society is a welcome sight
a reminder that life is simple.

Saw a man sitting on a bench
on a train platform teeming with life
He had headphones on and a book to read
cocooned within an invisible sphere
Perhaps it’s imagined or a wish
but you look protected from the world
even as you were within it
On that platform there was stillness
that’s missing from this world
in the aftermath of all the stories
of violent deaths and despair.

Simplicity does not seem possible
quiet persists in eluding us
but one could only see from one’s eyes
what the world is made of
but what do I know?

To say goodbyes

Standard

To say goodbyes

I learned to say goodbyes
quick and short
with a cheery countenance,
Refusing to dwell in
the heartbreaks
each farewell always bring.

I learned to hope, to dream
anticipate
bright futures coming true,
Bracing a little, watchful
believing
love will conquer much.

I learned to sleep alone
warm and safe
my imagination on,
Within the crook of your arms
the promise of
greeting another dawn.

With a smile in my heart…

Standard

 

What does it feel to be abandoned?
Alright, not so dramatic.
I am merely learning to let go
And with a smile in my heart;
Never the “she’s my baby” thing
Never the “but she needs her mama” either
Never the “the world’s a dangerous place” fear,
Except to trust
– That I have done my job sufficiently well
So her beautiful mind has taken notice
Of necessary caution and vigilance
To make up for her not-so-vast experience,
– That I have given enough warnings
And posed relevant questions
Not so much as to scare her into timidity
Instead to give her the courage that comes with knowledge
And the wherewithal to handle emergencies;
As she hangs with her friends in an unfamiliar city
I am close enough, but not too close
For the world can be dangerous, but
It is foremost an exciting and welcoming place
In which she must fully establish herself one day;
And thus she takes small steps towards a future
From which I cannot protect her
Nor is there a desire to
For I will have done my best to equip her
To take the risks she must to thrive
To live nobly and audaciously
To love valiantly
To laugh boldly, in the face of all that will come.
