Poppy II

“Free” I wrote
Above all beauty

Free to stand beneath the sky
And like the poppies in the field
I’d be different …
I would try

Yet now the winds
Sing harvest songs
While all the fields lay bare
And my eyes have filled with water
Like the clouds have filled the air

There’s always been a distance
Between this world and I
For my feet walk different soil
And my eyes see different sky

However I was bold enough
To think I wouldn’t care
Perhaps I dreamed of finding beauty
Perhaps I dreamed that I would dare

However now I need someone
For I remain a stranger kind
Someone who understands my feelings
Someone who doesn’t judge or mind

Because to you I’m not a poppy
I’m but a weed, no more
Unable to live fully
Clearly broken at the core

And so I stand alone again
The curse of scarlet blood it seems
When autumn comes these petals fall
Unable to express my dreams

At night I sit and wonder
If my words and songs are true
For all they’ve meant and mean to me
They mean nothing to you

Could one someday acknowledge, please
Embrace and grasp the essence of
The heart that is a poppy
How deep I feel
How deep I love


Divine music – Aloha Ke Akua

Inspired by this gorgeous song:

Would you believe it if you knew what you were for,
and how you became so informed.
Bodies of info
performing such miracles.
I am a miracle made up of particles
and in this existence, I’ll stay persistent,
I’ll make a difference
and I will have lived it.

– Nahko & Medicine for the People: Aloha Ke Akua

Dreaming words (edit)

Dreams edit

This is the latest edit of my previous post.
Inspired by a recent project at work where we were all asked about “our dreams.”
My dream is to be an artist.

Words and dreams are much alike.
Both have wings
To travel time
And aim for the sky.
