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
Calming hazing
Forcing me into my own
I know
I have a long way to go
My priorities keep
To new ground
For now
I'm okay with where I am
The expectation rivaled by
Two different things
Despite the fact
Their meaning
Could be


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.

God uses the milestones as stepping stones to bring us closer to Him. We may not see it in the moment, but we can always look back and see the memorials of His love in the crumbles of our stumbling blocks.

Love. Great job describing

Love. Great job describing this feeling!

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!
