Words II

Sovereignty

 

Bound by mistakes of the old,

My silent screams -- untold.

I will not hesitate to vacate,

No more holding with hate,

 

For the sake of my beliefs.

Sheltered

 

After she led a poignant

Sheltered life for forever,

 

Now she's finally here,

Distant from the sheltering sky.

Bittersweet

 

Tormented with expectations,

Regardless of my existence,

How strange it was,

Not to be the chosen one.

Eerie

 

My cherry-red lips sealed tight,

While holding the light,

Waiting for a miracle,

In the eerie bleak winter.
