Poem by MwsR

Remember

Flashes are so poignant

They stick to your brain

Causing you to sometimes feel insane

Expressive glances

Leave you wondering

Checking your past reactions

Stirs of remembrance

Cause you to lose your temperance

They punish you, in some sort of way

Leaving no room for free play

It is cause and effect

Movement and motion

Recourse and stand still

What we sometimes say we never really feel

When our minds clutter

Our lips stutter

If we go we often really stay

In the past, in the visions of yesterday

Spinning away and in dis-array

It all gets twisted it all falls apart

In little segments, somewhere in our hearts.

Take things not, for granted

Take some sort of stand

Pass knowledge, not chaos to every man.

Make a difference where you can

Let by-gones be gone

Traveling to wherever is your home.

Stay there, feel the love

Put yourself in that human glove

Secure, safe, and real.

POEM

The Reason For, by MwsR

In the quiet of the day

When thoughts start to invade

There are reflections that appear

Maybe of a person, you hold dear.

What is their significance in your life

Do they pose something for you without strife?

We must reflect only to direct

To change our focus perhaps,

We don’t need to relapse.

Past things are to be remembered

But they are not to diminish our slumber

Or to dictate our future

This is the measure of becoming mature.

Yes, remember

But never stay too long or linger

Our future can be a pleasure

Our past can interrupt our harmony

Believe this from me.

Poem

WE Are Not Perfect,
MwsR

It is not merely living in this old world that we must do
It is in showing love to someone that cares about you
In finding happiness in the smallest of things
Even if for a short time , the smile it brings
One must repent when they do something wrong
One must try to live in harmony like a song
If ever sadness that you may have sent
Try to forgive yourself so you’re not bent
We learn by errors, and lessons we face
Errors do not have to hold us in that lowly place
Whenever people choose to forgive
They not only start to live
But ungrudgingly give
For us all to exist, to resist, to persist, there must be a greater purpose
There first must be a surface from which to start
One that does not crumble,
One that withstands all the grumble,
In order to achieve , receive, believe there must be a better place
Whether it is inside us or in front of us, or in that infinite space
Find it, capture it, share it.
Forgive, receive, believe


Don’t let past mistakes, past judgments, past actions keep you a prisoner.
Forgive others, forgive yourself, you are just human after all and we are sinful from birth.
Make amends when you can or however you can try not to repeat the same mistakes, move ahead without looking back and staying trapped.
Try not to get overwhelmed
Tell those around you how much you care and love them while you can still do it.
Remember everybody struggles, everybody messes up, everybody deserves to be happy and be loved.
TO all my friends that know this struggle, I wish you peace.
