Don’t Give Up – It’s Near

She only sees reason to blame

herself for all of the pain.

She knows if she leaves

it will still remain.

She shades her eyes from the light

hoping it is all just a lie;

She will wake up and everything

will be alright.

It already hurts too much.

What if she just messes up

just like the other times: 

she gives up.

She has been searching for many years.

Everyday hoping she is near.

She needs strength and instead 

finds fear.


Sore Feet

Not ready for an open heart.

Not ready for it torn apart.

I wish I had the strength to stay.

Addicted to running away.

I’m ready for a brand new start.

Though my starts never get too far.

What am I waiting for?

My feet are getting sore.
