The Day Begins

The day begins I look forward to it

To finish the things that need to be done

But I read, and paint

And before long

The day comes to an end

I lag behind on things

I had planned from A to Z(d)

Oh where did the day go by

And why are the hours so short

They are gone

Before I could start

Whispers in my Heart

Images form, and shadows lurk

Crowding my mind to my dismay

Coherent thoughts pushed aside

Blurred images come into play

Should I ignore the whispers now loud

Drumming my head into disarray

(Sheen-Aug 2018)

Identical

I don’t want to see you

The smile is not there

Replaced with worry lines

You look defeated

With shoulders sagging at times

I don’t want to see you

My identical image in the mirror

It’s best I forget you

Or I’ll deem myself a failure

Mystery

Life is a mystery from cradle to grave

What lies ahead you never know

Life in the womb, then life outside

Step by step it unfolds you know

Some on the right path, some on the wrong

Life follows an unknown ebb, and flow

Getting through it is a struggle alright

But life is a gift on us bestow

(Sheen-November2017)

Superficial

With superficial charm he did me woo

Fell for it without any clue

What struck me I never knew

My eyes opened after the issue

To save myself I couldn’t undo

Fashionable

When do you want me to come

What do you want me to wear

My clothes are no longer fashionable

As I have grown older, I no longer care

What to wear is not my priority 

I’m comfortable in my old wear

They are not prickly, not so new

But soft against my skin I never knew

The colors are faded, and light on the eyes

And what I wear not everyone likes

(Sheen-October2017)

Mighty

.

Thinking of the woods that run so deep

Have to pass through them

To reach safety

Taking a breath, I pause briefly

Is it safe to go ahead

Or make a return weary

Those by my side are no longer there

Standing alone they have vanished leaving me

Have to cross through the woods that run so deep

There is no turning back for me

Please give me the courage

God Almighty
