Mariposa

My heart has ruptured all over this page

My eyes are opened to a future
…rearranged
The week after next
I will perform on their stage
To free pent up emotions
To spring a heart from her cage
I dance to a rhythm that continues to change
I bite down on wisdom that precedes me in ageย 
The hammer was struck with the words you onced waged
And my soul has been tattered with nails from that day
I will remove each splinter and be numb to the pain
I will cleanse the hurt with oils and sage
I will powder my nose and pretty this face
I will be shy, I will be brave
I will release Mariposa
…from the flocks of their gaze.

    1. Haha- well she is sacrificing for the greater good- you see it’s a costume and she is going to give a stunning performance. Perhaps she will reward the audience with cherry lollipops for the encore ;))

  1. Those are beautiful words sis a transmutation and methamorphosis walking through a new shining light and path I love it sis!! โค

    And I would like to add for you few words from the final part of my Poem "The Walk"

    "but you will be stronger step after step.
    The immense love you have inside, will hold your hand tight,
    your beautiful soul will lead your way to the light,
    your courage will bring you out
    you will be proud
    You will be free
    the Savior would be there to hold you always"
