Lesson

There’s a lesson

I’ve been resistant
to learning,
thoughts turned
to burdens
new and old

Do I overreact
not show enough mercy
could I learn new patience
let time unfold

The depths inside
each living soul

Be brave
face distance
blistering cold

Scale walls
break fences
patch the holes

Upon the ground
and in my bones

Reach summits
previously unknown;

Time only tells
I steam along

Reality faces
me head-on

I’ve no reserves
to build upon

Love, one day here
the next day gone

Can’t find your heart
my only one

Walls built
around are
much too strong

My lesson
slowly, harshly
learned

My heart
too often
fully burned

Won’t wait for
you to come around

My love once lost
is never found.

    Are you okay with this being shared? It is very touching and it so well expressed where I sense you are… And the growth you’re experiencing. You are so beautiful, and so is your poetry.
