We all go through some very tough times in life and for me it is no different. I have lived with my own inner battles and often find, that is when my creative self-expression is at its very best, because I am living the pain but moving forward at the same time. This next poem was written about a time in my life when I was in a challenging place, this I feel to me was a breakthrough poem. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, believe that and you shall see and experience that for yourself. Lots of love Clarabelle
It’s been a tough old week,
Feeling stressed, and out of peak.
But by releasing the feelings,
It allows me, to start my healings.
I’ve cried and I’ve struggled with the pain,
But I’ll use my learning to recover again.
The answer is there,
In the darkness, I stare.
Asking for help, does anyone hear?
The answer is within, there is nothing to fear.
So I look at my life, from a helicopter above,
Amongst the clouds, I search for the dove.
I raise my body, out of my soul,
Floating above, I see my heart with a hole.
I begin to imagine, life is so dear,
Swimming in the bluest of oceans, near the edge of the pier.
I drift back down and join my mind,
By taking myself out, the answers I find.
To appreciate life, and all it will be,
Is discovering the truth, and then you will see.
That to end it all now, would not rescue me,
To not wake up tomorrow, will not set me free.
Emotions are high, and the tension is real,
But to give up now, on a punctured wheel,
Is to say that this low, will not change in time,
I’m in control, for this life is mine.
So I smile with a tear, and get off my bike,
This journey ain’t over, it’s a wonderful hike.
So I lift my head high, and carry on,
The horizon is so beautiful, and from dusk till dawn, I will stay strong.
