Back and Forth

A Poem By Madeline // 6/26/2015

If I was to write my truth
In color
They would stretch to either side
Of me
Elastic in consistency
Deep browns and cold blues
A silent lilac a
Simmering red
All of them distinctly separate
Distinctly grasping
At my hair and clothes
Pulling my awares in
Five-thousand directions
Complicating
Compensating
Calming hazing
Forcing me into my own
I know
I have a long way to go
My priorities keep
Leaping
To new ground
For now
I'm okay with where I am
The expectation rivaled by
Anticipation
Two different things
Despite the fact
Their meaning
Could be
The
Same

Love this! That's exactly how

Love this! That's exactly how I feel where I'm at right now. But it's a good feeling, to me.

My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬

Great job Homey :)

Great job Homey describing this particular feeling! Most of us, including me can really relate! It is both exciting and scary during times where transitions are upon us or on the horizon. I am also in such a position now and you describe the conflict with bittersweet clarity. Beautiful!
