Poem to Affirm

While I’m alive I will live life, Life that is love and love that is free, I will give life to my thoughts, Thoughts that are harmonious, Thoughts that serve me. Actions to actualize, Change to trigger growth. Emotions to feel, Experiences to let go.

Short poem

I have to suppress my heart, Till the pain fills my mind, My lungs frozen in time, I suffocate the memories, To patrol my thoughts, I take life from my dreams, My own hands at fault, I stab, I cut, I bleed. I silence cries of mercy, Murdering the old me.
