A Poem by Ink Angel

About change, within




You have to reach deep inside yourself, to the very core,

Beneath the hidden layers into the darkness

Exhale the greyness and release it,

Like puffs of smoke, grey clouds rising up

Disappearing like the fear

Replace it with a light any colour you like.


Tug hard on that purple ribbon, from that place that is blocked.

The leash around your throat, chew it up and spit it out,

Before you choke.

The knot deep within, untie it iron it out.

Centre and just the reset button, its free,

Make amends, you know it makes sense, you will mend

Love is all there is in the end.


Change the thought pattern

Damage, rage, guilt and fear

Write the lines cross them out, toss those words about

Change the channel, raise the frequency.

Hope, strength, power and gratitude

Love is all there is in the end. Try not to doubt.


Let the inner child out of the box to play,

Unbroken, brand new, realigned.

If you seek you will find, the inner light still glowing,

The fire just needs stoking.

Let it dance, let it sing,

Let it scream and let it shout!

Cry buckets if in any doubt

Just get it out!

Love really, is all there is in the End.

and what's wonderful is that rebirth can happen over and over (hence the word re-birth). especially love the phrases "replace it with a light any colour you like" "press reset" the whole third stanza. great poem!

"The leash around your throat, chew it up and spit it out,
Before you choke."
These two lines are pretty fantastic. :) I loved the whole poem, really, but those lines stood out to be the most. A warning, perhaps. Anyway, great poem with a great message.
Keep writing!

I loved the whole technical approach with reset button and all, that's really creative. And also the in-depth meaning, how this is like therapy, to free yourself and gain ultimate optimism, literally pulling out all that bothers you. Very uplifting, love the imagery, brilliant job.

This is truly beautiful! So well written, full of heart, and more importantly, full of truth. "Love really, is all there is in the End." I love the metaphors you use, they create such lovely imagery.

These words are so light and free. I love this, it's so powerful without being regretful or full of fear..

I find that every couple of years I have to reinvent myself. Things just start dragging, and I'm down. So, I set new goals, and come out of my funk, trying new things. And yes, "Love really, is all there is in the End."
