Music In Me

A Poem By Gina I. // 6/21/2016

There's music in my soul
And no way to contain it
There's a song in my heart
But I can't release it
There's a melody in me
Fighting to be free
But it hides in darkness
Afraid to be seen
There's a poem of me
Beauty, wonder, joy
And no one on harmony
There's a dirge pounding
A slow, sad song in my head
With none to stop the decline
There's a battle-cry in me
Confidence, peace
There's a graveyard as well
Lost hopes, broken dreams
And a young tree that fell
There's a song I feel throbbing
A beat I sense building
There's a life I see wasting
With no one to help me sing
I'm a lost and hopeless thing.

This is beautiful, in a

This is beautiful, in a lovely and morbid way. It reminds me of the emotional ups and downs we go through in life. So relatable.

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

Aww, Damaris said everything

Aww, Damaris said everything I was going to! This poem is just as beautiful and happy as it is sad and hoping. The rhythm of it was gorgeous.

"To live is to love with the passion of a thousand stars. To love is to live despite the pain of a thousand scars. Anything in between is a passing shadow." ~Michael Joseph Murano
