An End To The Beginning

An End To The Beginning

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver
"

Fall and rise and as I go to share, the captcha was undyed :) Seems apt...

"


Fourth of August
digits she would remember for the rest of her days
no more would the cacophony of the world silence her voice
she would continue to sing and hide her song from no-one
no more would she react rather than respond to the chaos of life
she would trust in the universe and be Priestess to her own intuition
no more would she dwell in shadows because she was misunderstood
she would be the Witch she was born to be in full magickal glory
no more would she doubt herself and fear her path
she would rise from the searing flames reshaped
no more would she be the fragile girl afraid of demons in the night
she would be the woman with nature's glow in her heart
no more would she answer to those who ridiculed or suffocated her will
she would scream at the moon and howl with wise wolves
no more would she lament the past or loose connections
she would embrace the fragrance of future in sandalwood tones
no more would she feel guilty for being a sensitive being
she would guard her soul with a passion never seen
no more would she see awakening as a smooth transition
she would claim and own her flaws and imperfections
no more would she let the vampires feed from her energy source
she would reign as Queen in her own land of dragons and blackbirds
no more would she feel inferior to others who condemned her so
she would shine in silver tones and outshine the doubters
no more would she dye her hair red to be someone she was not
she would be her natural self and recognise her own worth
no more would she let hostility seep into her aura
she would protect herself from the anger of others
no more would she suffer invasion of a narcissistic mother
she would be mother to herself and heal the wound
dig deep little girl
hit rock bottom old soul
only you can save yourself
scream warrior woman
release the crows

Firing off as many avenues to cracking out of the cocoon as possible. You did your thing here, Pop. Granted I'm late to this one, haven't been on as often, but this write of yours does what other writes have done- they draw a reader in and don't let them up until you say so. :)

Excellent, Pop. xo

Showing the identity and revealing the plan
within poetry.
A woman with power and individual thinking emerges and seeks her goals.

Many thanks Josie :)
What an intensely-stated & empowering statement about finding one's truth & living it! Bravo! This is a great inspiration to those who are filled with doubt & shaken by criticism. I love the structure of each couplet as a statement of the past challenged by a statement of the future. I love the way you use analogies & imagery from nature to add an artful touch to this otherwise cerebral appeal. This is one of the most memorable of yours that I've read so far! Fondly, Margie
