Nobody’s Fool

As painful as break-ups are,

You have not lost at love,

You have won,

Love has defeated the untrue,

Love has opened the doors and windows for the right love to come in,

A love that is meant for you,

Celebrate with your broken heart,

For a fool has let you go,

Your real king or queen awaits the gift of you.

Hope

It is with the strength of choosing the road less traveled that I, the lone wolf, have learned to turn my greatest fears into hope.

CourageĀ

It takes more courage to stand alone without fear, than to follow the pack without hope.

The Morning After

As I nervously watched the results unfold,I felt a part of me die,

Astonished and deflated,

Tears fell from my eyes,

Anger and sadness stirred,

I slept,

Awakened numb,

Fearful with newfound inner strength,

From the ashes of defeat,

A warrior was born,

A protector,

A vision of love,

Together, all of us new warriors will rise and overcome,

With our voice,

We will be heard. As I nervously watched the results unfold,

I felt a part of me die,

Astonished and deflated,

Tears fell from my eyes,

Anger and sadness stirred,

I slept,

Awakened numb,

Fearful with newfound inner strength,

From the ashes of defeat,

A warrior was born,

A protector,

A vision of love,

Together, all of us new warriors will rise and overcome,

With our voice,

We will be heard. #love #truth #infp #notmypresident #protectors #writer #poet #poetry #hopekenyon #standtogether #warriors #unite #beheard #humanity #morningafter #mykidsfuture #globalwarming #peace #voice #neverstopbelieving #fightforwhatsright #imstillwithher #myphoto #expression #freeverse #raw #lovetrumpshate #lightfollowsdarkness #keepfighting #lightfollowsdarkness 

Dystopia

img_6792-1

Living in a false sense of reality, Surrounded by FAKE PEOPLE, FAKE NEWS, SOCIAL MEDIA VOYEURISM, DESTRUCTION, Disillusioned by truth, Playing second fiddle to my own life, I began to question where I am and I wonder,  Am I living in a 21st Century Dystopia?

The Dance With Fate

There lies the dance with fate,I sway in the dust of memories purest hate, 

Passionate anger, I cry,

Buried bones within my flesh, 

I rot,

They hold me back from life, killing my soul, piece by piece,

I have no choice but to let you all go,

To banish you all in forgiveness so that I may live, 

May these skeletons find wings to fly.

Love Story

The sound of his voice bewitched her senses,

Sweet red wine lingered as she tasted his words,

Love traced the edges of her lips,

She desired his kiss,

She wanted to consume a love story.
