To Hold, to Be

To Hold, to Be

A Poem by Ellie the writer
"

This poem is a ballad about ourselves, our lives and journey.

"

To Hold, To Be

Tell me what it’s like to stroll, on sandy terrains

knowing what is to be,

evading crumbs left by transgressors,

assuring yourself of who you are, in the rains.

~~~

To hold your hands, and shut unwanted marks

To explain known destiny 

securing your soul of untamed remarks

a plan duly thought of in time.

~~~

Tell me they can’t dent your heart

you have come this far

in times you have stopped to restart

and analysed your fractious path.

~~~

To hold your journey, it takes courage;

and the malaise rhythm parts you

To hide your sorrows, you breach your memories

and find who you thought you knew

~~~

Tell me you will hold your hands again

you will go far, without delusion,

thus time will favour your set plan

and set you free from seclusion.

This poem has a wonderful cadence, where the sum is truly greater than the sum of the parts. I can't explain it, it just had a wonderful setting and "melody in the mouth"
