Sigh


Sigh.
When there’s danger about
And nothing flashes friendly
Don’t sing your depressing melody
Where you’re both artist and audience
Instead lift your feet from their concrete shells
And return to the place where judgment is nil

Home is a harbor
For lost vessels

Love emanates from the safety
Brooding is removed from your body

The poetry of family
Is that words are not necessary
Is where visions come undone
You are who you are
And that’s the only necessity
Dreams stay living
When empowered by encouraging eyes
And through these eyes, your vision shall become

Sigh.
When all seems in doubt
Where not a soul appears the same

Take a deep breath.
 Sigh.
You’re but footprints away
From the place you once called home

Return to comfort
Do not dote
Go home again.
Where acceptance begins
With hello.
Sigh.

  8. Pat, that's very true my friend. Hello isn't necessarily the first words, but theoretically it probably should be:) Thanks for the visit, always look forward to your feedback. Thanks:)

  9. I think it is essential for a person to have place to call home, wherever that maybe -- be it with family or friends, or pet. :) It's simply a place where one can be at peace, relax and recharge.

    A call to get out instead of just standing and taking it, and letting yourself get dragged down. I love these lines.
