Poetry: No need to run


For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. This is a poem that is a part of a Poetry collection that comes from a time of my my searching days

No need to run

Coming home from my task,

a part of the plan,

I’d be relieved that my work was finally done.

But, this announcement revealed  I’d be alone.

Nervous I would get, jittery I’d become

and when I would walk past the mirror,

I would stop  and await the criticism of me.

My eyes would open the way

for the heckling and the jeers

that would rage in my soul

and out of desperation  and plight,

off I would run,

away from the acute screams of my soul.


But, today,

I comfort in my time,

for the strife that existed

between my heart and my mind

caused me much discomfort,

but because of that discomfort,

a friendship was formed.
