Walking it off

Walking it off

A Poem by J. Hampton

private....
grey
envelops me oddly
a comfort that numbs my walk along the shore
It erases the distance ,the time ...
the sharp shells and stones
it muffles the sounds Of effervescent children and... the scream
Yes... the disruptive ...scream of yellow ,orange and purple
Summer colored things ... tropical tones of torture
someone else's happiness
my solitude begs for someone to hold its hand
the birds chatter amongst themselves dipping gliding and soaring beautifully with the Grace that somehow eludes me

Oh I do hate those long lonely walks when Olin reality we just want to break something anything. Especially the source. Do they really need all there fingers? Hehe!

Always and with love

A decidedly lonely walk.
Apparently, what's missing in your life looms so much larger than what you have--a profoundly sad state of affairs.
Masterfully portrayed.

Oh stop it. We hold the key, they have to spoil us.
Happiness becomes a lie in such a time. There are times we will wallow in the grey, because we are allowed to, almost required to, in order to know we're human.

Breathtaking poem J.

I embrace it...denial gets one nowhere
thanks for reading
I'm certain that true grace has never eluded you my friend. Life is full of challenges, pitfalls and setbacks. The older I get, the deeper the pitfalls seem, the tougher the challenges become and the setbacks require much more recovery time. But I'm enduring for my crown...same as everyone in the race. If I fall I may lean on a friend until I can walk again...even if I lose the ability to run. Bless.
