Love: Not Always Good!

I tried to see across the beautiful bare trees

Looking for the sea

I can’t see it, nor are there any leaves

No water, no air, no me

No me, you see, I am not free

Not free from bare trees

Looking for the beautiful sea air

Oh my, will I see it, hear it?

Help me Lord

For I have cut the cord

I don’t need him anymore

I run and run and run

I didn’t see the sun

I hurt, I cried and I died

I finally found the strength

Deep down inside

Down to my core

To look for the Lord

I found the power

To seize the day

And no longer be that coward

And in a cold day in May

I did it, I did it, I did it

I looked for the sea through the bare trees

And I found me

I run hid and run some more

Until I found the Lord

I am free from him

Lord helped me be free

I hear the sea through the bare trees

I hear the water and I see the leaves

Now I can breathe

 

There Is Always Help!

Escaping, Run
Escaping, Run

Very powerful - from 'I am not free' to 'now I can breathe' - you take the reader through your journey with style and passion.

The strength to escape when you feel so alone and weak is a wonderfull thing! I liked this, it makes me wish I could write poetry. oh, and I loved the images of the sea, and bare trees.

When you look back now.. you will find that your trees have grown beyond the emptiness. You have the right to always be happy and grow from those roots that found your happiness. Promise yourself to never accept less than that and your tree will bloom. Take care Ladybird..you have no need to fly away anymore. Your home is in your heart.

Hi, I just called in to say hi and mark up a good work. Thanks for the nice comment; I'm pleased that the spring bought leaves; so important for an evergreen. Take care.

This fledgling poetry, as you describe it, soars just fine. I enjoyed reading it a few times over, to better focus on your setting, which is also I think used as a great metaphor. Well done Ladybird33.
