Breaking Through

Breaking Through
Breaking Through

Cuddled within the darkness

Surrounding like a blanket

The comfort of the known

Leaving not a clear interest


Sounds from without enter

Curiosity is sparked inside

An urge suddenly arises

Break away from the jailer


Little by little; piece by piece

Chipping at what once was real

Sure that something better awaits

No more confinement just sweet release

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. what an awesome poem!! like the fetus ready to leave the womb, or the soul ready to leave the body at “death”, like Leyli and Majnun leaping the wall — we curse and fear the future but it is our constant, constant change. Bravo!!
