Outside The Box

In The Box
Mixed Media by Kim Nelson

 

Neatly
Packed away
Fitted into the clean white space
Space
You determined
I should fill

Independently
I bowed the walls
Expanded to a bold broad place
Place
I determined
I would fill

Sadly
Juxtaposition
Of expectations
Caused destruction
Expatriation

I
AM alone
Outside the box

Lost to you

Unexpected
Completely true

Knowing

 

Sharp as razor’s edge
The woman
Cut through
Tumbleweed, sedge
Of social niceties

Fully in control
The woman
Shot straight
Hip and low
To the heart of things

Goddess, yet in flesh
The woman
Discerned
Wise from rest
Left no casualties

She knew better

To Let Go

I AM letting go

The time has come

 

Morning realization

This is done

 

I AM moving on

Though filled with love

 

Dawning here and now

Clear, from above

 

I AM placing faith

In you and yours

 

Capable of choice,

Successes, more

 

I AM opening fists

And opening heart

 

Letting what comes next

Lessons impart

 

I AM freeing you

And freeing me

 

To live and learn and love, now

Judgment free

 

I AM shunning fear

To let love bind

 

Illuminate my soul

Heart, psyche, mind

 

 

Terra Firma

And now

I stand my ground

I’ll not be abused

Refuse to be used

When cheated, short-fused

Way past the blues

Thus I implore you … Do not be confused

This line

In this sand

This time

~ Is final ~
