Healed & Changed By Love

Love-Heals

It was as if all I touched was made of glass

Nothing I did went the way I’d intended

Kind thoughts in my head ended up sounding crass

Bridges were burnt and many relationships ended

Many times, I felt like a lost cause

Unworthy of long lasting relationships and love

The devil had my heart within his clenched jaws

Doubt and shame had me turned away from God up above

My past is full of mistakes, things I simply can’t take back

Hearts broken, trust shattered, bonds cut, & friendships lost

It was too easy to let guilt, shame, & heart break get me off track

All I wanted and having things my way came at too high a cost

And while I was too busy hurting many that loved me

The same was being done to me by many I loved in return

A viscous cycle that kept us going, no signs of letting us break free

Seeming to promise to let our wounds fester and burn

Would the words we used continue to cut one another deep

And the things we did break each other down

Could we not find a way to let love be what we chose to keep

And let the darkness, pain, and anger within drown

Over the years, God has helped me out of the hole I had so deeply dug

Unchained me from the past and showed me how to move ahead

It took a lot of humility, hard work, prayer, and yes, lots of love from Doug

Not to mention many others that never gave up, no matter what I did or said

As it turned out, I wasn’t so alone as I’d once thought myself to be

God showed me that He was there, always had been & forever will remain

And I also began to see surrounding me were good friends and many from my family

The bonds are still strong, despite the years of heartache & strain

Through it all, I have grown up so much

Giving up the woman I was for far too long

For someone with a kinder heart and gentler touch

And both a heart and a will that through Him is strong

We Are Works of Art

Image

All that I am & all that you are is poetry

We are works of art for all to see

The way we move, the way our minds operate

What wonders we think of & create

 

God is the great creator, the one who designed us

How we wove us together, all the angels made such a fuss

How like He, we have been wonderfully made

In awe they stood, at the works of art He had displayed

 

He watches us as move about the great canvas called life

Celebrating with us our successes & helping us through strife

How do your words flow upon the pages of your individual story?

What you create leaves behind long lasting memories

 

I hope that upon my pages, you see beautiful works of art

Wondrous colors amidst descriptive words that capture your heart

May my life tell of heartbreak & sorrow, but also triumph & love

Let it inspire you & show you the one who loves us from up above

 

As we go through life, let us never truly cease to be

Let the lives we lead now leave behind beautiful legacies

Upon the book of your life, let your true character shine through

Be bold & brilliant and let love shine through in all you do

Letting Go

74722_227044674080233_109568670_n

On the defensive, you retreat
Trying to shield yourself from harm
So high and thick is the wall you have built
Refusing to allow anyone to gain entrance
Yet you’re more vulnerable than ever

You hold a weapon to defend yourself
A sword made from angry and hateful words
They slice through your enemy like butter
Feeling vindicated for the suffering they put you through
And yet still peace doesn’t find you

Confused, surely once you defeated them
You thought you’d be happy, safe, & free
Instead you find yourself more hurt than before
Will it ever really end, you wonder
Will I ever really be alright?

The saying goes, an eye for an eye
One doesn’t just let people walk all over them
You have to fight fire with fire, right?
Let them feel the pain that they caused me!
Surely then I will win and this will all end!

Though now you truly see the damage that’s been done
And among the battles scattered ashes, no one has won
Iron fists of hatred tore you all down
The wall you built is in ruins beneath you
Tell me, was it worth it?

It may seem easier to strike back
To avenge your broken heart
And let bitterness overtake you
Than to let go of the pain and to forgive
But in the end, tell me which one brings peace?

Staring at my reflection in the mirror
I ask that question again
And tell myself, “It’s time to let go.”
I open the doors within my mind
And try to make some sense of what’s inside

As pain and hatred make their way to the door
They tell me they’d really like to stay
But I tell them they’ve worn out their welcome
The time for healing has come
I’m done feeling so worn out, so very tired

As each painful memory begins to heal
A scar forms, but they don’t hurt
They remind me of where I have been
And of who I used to be
But they no longer hold power over me

I’ll never forget what has happened
And nor will I ever forget who I was
But only because I want to become someone better
Each and every single day, that is my desire
To be a better me than I was the day before

Each day, I feel a little freer
My soul soars with the eagles up high
On the wings of the most beautiful butterfly
Hope gives me courage to try
And love gives me the strength to fly

Words can be so much fun!

Fun With Words

Well my blog is titled Life, Love, Poetry, & Other Randomness for a reason. 😉 Let us delve into some randomness, shall we? I love words! I am a writer, but also an avid reader as well. Words bring me so much joy! Oh the power they have too, much more than many realize. Well, I was thinking about words I like and thought perhaps I’d share a short list of them with you! Some can just be oh so much fun to say!

1) Plethora

2) Audacity

3) Indeed

4) Seriousness

5) Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (It’s a word to say when you don’t know what else to say! How I love Mary Poppins!)

6) Loquacious

7) Superfluous

8) Success

9) Ambition

10) Tenacious

11) Adoration

12) Velocity

13) Music

14) Beloved

15) Abundance

16) Duplicitous

17) Freely

18) Obnoxious

19) Circumference

I chose to share nineteen words today as today is the 19th. I hope you enjoyed my randomness today!

 

Power Within

Image

Words have such power

More than many realize

They can strengthen a fragile heart

Or they can tear a soul apart from the inside out

 

Often times we think before we speak

Not considering how our words impact others

It’s become too easy to let words flow off our tongues

Though we don’t hesitate to get offended at what’s said to us

 

Hollow promises wound as much as cruelty in verse

Actions resonate loud and clear long after the words fall silent

What we do and what we say are echos of who we are

What reverberates in another’s ear when they see us clearly?

 

The power we wield within us is great

Greater than we could ever truly fathom

One that lasts from one generation to the next

And it is up to us to decide how to use it

Image

What we do is an echo of who we are….

543572_10151026235186323_634218308_n

What we say and what we do influences more people than I believe we realize. Yes, the people closest to us are touched the most by our words and actions, but there so many others we don’t stop to think about most of the time. The guy you cut in front of while driving to work because you were running late and not paying attention, the old lady you smiled at while in line at the grocery store, the lady that you helped when she dropped her stack of papers, the young boy you rushed off that was trying to sell pizzas for his youth group, and countless others we come across in our day to day doings that we often forget about before the end of the day. We have also been the one who has been sworn at, cut in front of, helped, been shown a kindness, and so forth. Usually when we’re the ones who are receiver, we tend to remember those random people we deal with, but not always when we’re the giver.

It’s easier to brush things off when we’re rude to a stranger because we think they’ll just forget about it; I mean we were able to forget the days events, so it should be a piece of cake for them, right? This world has been going downhill for a long time and a large part of it is because we have forgotten how to be kind to those around us. Whether it’s harsh or kind, things done to us stick with us for awhile and we often act in the rush of the moment. If people are being kind to us, we tend to smile more, be more polite, and are more willing to lend a helping hand. So the reverse is true, if we have people yelling at us all day, being rude, and insensitive, it’s so easy to slip into that same behavior.

I wish this world was kinder. We all have bad days and it is easier said than done not to let it get to us, not to take it out on someone else. I have been the giver of harsh words and rude actions myself. I feel horrible later, but what’s done is done and most times I can’t apologize to the one I offended. It’s not always easy to remember it’s not just about us, but it’s something I think we could all try a lot harder to remember. An act of kindness goes a long way, but so does an act of rudeness. My sentiment for today is, let us try to think of others, be kinder, and not take our problems out on others…whether it be those close to us or the strangers we may never encounter again. What we do is an echo of who we are, what do you want to hear reverberate in others ears?

Our Song

Image

Many couples have a song

One that they feel describes their relationship

We never bothered to find one that suits us

Upon reflecting on that now

I realize there isn’t one yet made

There are countless love songs

Many that are beautifully written

But none that we both relate to

One that we both feel describes what we have

Perhaps then we must create our own

What we share is so wondrous

It’s beyond words

I shall try though to convey our story

Show the world our love

May it forever shine brightly in these verses

For years, I dreamed of my own Cinderella story

Finding my prince and riding away into the sunset

Living happily ever after in a perfect animated world

Though in those stories

You only get to the beginning of their journey

What happens to the prince and princess years later?

What does their love overcome?

I always wanted to know more

Because it’s about more than falling in love

It’s about staying there too

Upon meeting you, it wasn’t love at first sight

It took time before even our friendship would bloom

Getting to know you though was quite the journey

One I don’t feel will ever really end

In fact, I feel it’s only just begun

Over time, respect was earned

As our friendship grew

Other feelings began to surface

Though we both hesitated to act

Each had our own reservations

Many saw what we did not

The potential for something beautiful and true

Between me and you

Eventually we both saw it for ourselves

And in time we decided to give “us” a try

Like turned to love

No longer written on the pages of a fairy-tale

It became something real

Something enduring, something meant to last

Built upon a solid foundation of friendship

You’re my best friend and I am yours

Walking the winding roads together

Weathering life’s storms

Loss, grief, sorrow, hardships

Hand in hand, we’ve seen one another through

Laughter, joy, celebration, and hope

Growing stronger

Both as individuals and as a pair

Looking at where we are now

I don’t mind the road I had to take to get here

Our song isn’t your traditional love song

But it is as beautiful as any other

One to be listened to over and over

May all who hear it know where we’ve been

Where we are and where we will be

I love you, Doug.

Happy nine months

Brangien Illuminated

I am Brangien [Brangaine] of Weisefort, Ireland, lady-in-waiting to my cousin Isolde, who became promised to King Marc of Cornwall. His nephew Tristan escorted us to England by ship. But Tristan and Isolde fell in love at sea. As ye may know, or will find out, they cite the philter they drank as the cause, over which I was supposed to keep vigil. I would like to share my perspective of how I have created good in the world through my herbs and observations. There is much to tell, including how I have adopted this odd language. In good time. My life is in God’s hands. –Inspired by the modern French translations of the Tristan and Isolde texts
