Locked Outside

By Megan Miles I’m in His house, safe and warm. I realize how cold it is outside. I go and try to call others into the warmth. Frustrated I leave the warmth with no protection. I try to drag them in, finally I leave them. I return to the door. It is shut. It is […]

Poison

By Lorranda Olivia Poison floods our veins Slowly killing us like a snack bite But we are already too far-gone To see what it’s doing to us The poison pumps through us and we feel none of it Feeling is slowly cut off We become numb We slowly begin to fade. Slowly we let it […]

A Still Heart Awakes

By Lorranda Olivia The shock charges through me again My body jumps But my heart is still Again the shock goes through me But my heart sleeps still They ask, “Why will her heart not awake?” Because her heart has been asleep for too long… They fear that they cannot bid my heart to awake […]

A New Beginning

By Faith New church, new beginning Joy, hope, celebration Worship and praise Sunday school, prayer meetings New people, new friendships A year ends, a new year begins Joy, hope, celebration Worship and praise More meetings- but not in happiness Lies, hurt, jealousy Broken friendships and betrayal

Nature’s Song

By Faith Fields of fire-red poppies dance in the spring breeze under pure white clouds scattered across an azure blue sky. The sun is pulsing a ball of bright liquid light radiating warmth. Rolling hills blanketed with soft green grass sigh and birds chirp with the crickets together a chorus in perfect harmony. Leaves whisper […]
