Written for 3WW: Vindication, Impetus, Solace
Where I Had Left My Feet..
Vindicates my slide
Don’t take blame
Of pushing me
And giving impetus
To my descent
It will happen anyway
A steady fall
Towards my own
I had left my feet
While opting for wings
Offered by you
May give me solace
Yes, standing and
Walking back on
My own feet slowly
Could be interesting
Ah, this time I won’t
Have to carry
The constant burden
Of your likes and dislikes
Finally, I get my chance
To stand in my own light...
RS : )
To stand in your own light is to thrive. Great words.ReplyDelete
Great great great words. this felt like a last stand almost, like a self awakening.ReplyDelete
Its' good to stand in your own light too.ReplyDelete
Excellent - I hear your voice.ReplyDelete
Everyone said what I would have about standing in your own light...so I will say instead: Yes, sometime you just have to do it YOUR way. A thoughtful poem!ReplyDelete
The journey to finding oneself is the most important one we'll ever make, isn't it.ReplyDelete
It's amazing how in relationships we give so much of who we are to someone else and trust that they will take care of it, and yet, we lose our own identity then too.
Glad you have found your feet once more and, no doubt you have grown 'within' from the pain in the lesson.
Love this! It's a declaration of personal independence!ReplyDelete
This one has great depth to it. An excellent piece of writing!ReplyDelete
deep, and apt writing.ReplyDelete
Standing firmly on the ground is a pretty good place to be. This is well expressed.ReplyDelete
Strong ending and really brings it all together. Stand strong!ReplyDelete
