POETRY: Risk in the Abyss

Risk in the Abyss

Leap into the abyss,

Take a risk,

Here’s a chance that cannot be missed.

 

A heart is protected,

Connected,

A soul that has been affected.

 

It started with a kiss,

No resist,

But, now doubt begins to insist.

 

Fear and thoughts can wreck it,

Infected,

Expose your faults like you’re naked.

 

Don’t resist happiness,

Take a risk,

Let them help you rid of the mess.

POETRY: Moments

Moments

I wish my eyes were a camera,

Capturing moments for all to see.

An instance of pure happiness,

Or of devastation and misery.

 

Those times of heightened emotion,

Whether they be good or bad.

To either make another feel better,

Or to help someone feel glad.

 

We all have struggles to overcome,

So sharing them can be an aid,

To those who feel quite alone,

Who feel somewhat afraid.

 

Then sometimes we just need to cheer them up,

Let them see the good in the world.

Oh, I wish my eyes were a camera,

To show we live on a pearl!

 

Life is precious, and the land is alive,

We need to work together to survive,

We should help each other to see the light,

To say ‘yes’ instead of ‘I might’.

PERSONAL POST: The Appreciation of a Writer

Hi fellow Writing and Education Enthusiasts!

It has been quite awhile, I must say, since I have published a post that is not a Poetry or Prose piece. With this realisation in mind, I decided to make this post as another warm THANK-YOU to all those who have chosen to follow my journey as a writer.

One of the commonly occurring phrases is ‘Thank-you for caring about what others have to say’. To this I respond with, are we not all common human beings? Do we not all have some form of heartache, struggle, passion, strength and love? In a world forever changing, with each having a life of decisions and obstacles, why not band together and aid each others growth as successful beings? Indeed, I hope you all feel that my site is a space for sharing ideas and respecting opinions.

Do any of you have a theme request for a poem, prose or different written form? Perhaps you even request advice or aid? Feel free to express your thoughts.

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Lingering

Lingering

You brush over my mind,

Like a light feather on my skin.

I see your melting eyes,

And your voice seems to sing.

 

I’ve moved on and love all,

That I’ve achieved and who I am,

But here you are once more,

On my mind again.

 

Here you are once more,

Like an image flickering by.

You’re reachable with effort,

Like a balloon that’s flown high.

 

Yet the time and space apart,

Makes it like a dream.

Intangible and almost forbidden,

Something that could’ve been.

 

How can it be so long?

We’ve both grown and moved on.

Yet I don’t need to ask,

To know I’m not your past.

 

We will always be connected,

Even when far apart,

An invisible link protected,

A speckle stuck on the heart.

POETRY: Shout Out!

Shout Out!

If you have a voice, let it out!

Let it take the stage and shout!

 

Share your ideas with the world,

Be a woman not a girl.

 

Be a man, no not a boy,

Don’t let others make you their toy.

 

Take a stand and you will shine,

To have an opinion is not a crime!

 

Respect what others say and do,

Then ask them to let you be you.

PERSONAL POST & POETRY: Thank-you!

This post is dedicated to all the supporters I have already gained. It means so much to have other passionate beings sharing their passions with me, and encouraging me to pursue my dreams. So I now say to you all,

Thank-you

I always desired to start a site,

But it was constantly an ‘I might’;

Life is so busy, it’s hard to make time,

To sit down and create a much loved rhyme.

 

Passion flowing deep inside,

It seemed to only deeply reside,

No time to let the ideas out,

Let my growing desire shout.

 

But now, finally, here we are,

The amount of support surprises me by far,

I appreciate each and every one of you,

And I truly seek to support you too.

 

Lets grow together as passionate beings,

Support each other as we keep achieving,

Like posts, comment, and seek to inspire,

Show the world our voice as one big choir!

 

Sincerely Jody

POETRY: Plain and Green

Plain and Green

I am lonely on a surface,

Seeing the world with new eyes,

I feel so lost and frustrated,

What am I? Who am I?

 

Behind me is a crumbling brown,

Below me is all green,

Above me is the brightest circle,

That my eyes have ever seen.

 

The surface seems to have green veins,

And bounce beneath my weight,

My stomach is grumbling with pains,

A feeling that I hate.

 

I take in a breath and begin to slide,

To the very edge,

I peek over the side with wide eyes,

My body shakes with dread.

 

With fearful eyes I gaze below,

And see a surface that gleams,

It reflects an image in the shallow,

Of a veiny shape of green.

 

Upon this pointed oval shape,

Is a creature that I barely see,

With tearful eyes I say ‘Wait,

Is that creature me?’

 

I am so small and hardly there,

I am all plain and green,

I continue to shake and fearfully stare,

At this creature I wish I had not seen.
