Peasantries Against Pleasantries

I'm Slowly Making My Way Back

I haven't been here to write for a little while now, and when I write, this introduction part is usually an explanation to my own grasp of my written words. I don't want to do that this time.

An interpretation is what I want the readers to grab here. Their own thoughts and emotions that flow while they read these poetic passages. I know what they mean for me, but how will they make you, the reader, feel?

Sometimes, we struggle in life. I cannot imagine anyone who has not. And so, this is why I haven't tried to write or read here lately. I apologize for that, because I am still not fully ready to read a lot today. I barely found my voice with my own piece here. I really typed it with a lot of angst. However, maybe it is the first step to feeling like expressing more. I hope all will be patient with me. Thank you.

And so it was...

It has not ever mattered that I am not the worst…it has only mattered that

I was never your best.


The scars that I wear burn in your eyes. They make me feel damaged.

They itch, and I despise.


Grabbing and wailing I tear at my flesh…if only I was new again

a real resurrect.


It is now my curse as I stare at my face…this struggle to live and

keep you amazed.


I don’t want to lose my pull of desire…yet; I'm aware of my own

lost staying power.

And so it is...

Sometimes, I find myself in a field of wildflower scents…

where there is always descend and some renewed ascends.


I try to imagine a life of theirs short…a death of environment creating

beauty reborn.


Oh…as I crumble into the Wildflower field…I wish the young daisies

would swallow this self-doubt.


Then allow me to regrow my poise and stout. Regretfully, we humans

are not of this fate…


It’s a silly dream, that only helps me live within my own terrible

fate.


Rising back to a dismal view of a life of lonely and irrelevant

moves.


I will sleep with an enemy forever present…the enemy of earth

whom I shall relinquish myself its PEASANT.

      You have been missed. I have no frame of reference regarding what you are going through. I've never suffered from depression, per se. I have fought alcoholism...two different things...and yet it was still a daily battle. And so all I can do is say I'm happy you are back for today.

      Welcome back Missy.

      Being the best does no depends on me

      It is not for me to judge you

      I see you as my friend

      And your friendship I see as true

      No scars reflected in my eyes

      I beg you do not despise

      Sooth your anguish and your cries

      And put away your despise

      All your readers love you

      And none of us will be judging

      That you are not the best that you can be!

      Blessings always, just be you.

      Thank you for reading these poetic passages of mine, everyone!

      Jodah, I love your interpretation of this one, and I do believe you read me better than I read myself. Thanks for that lovely explanation!

      I am slowly raising my interest back to write and read more again. I think I have just been a little down lately. However, even when I think it may make me quit; I never do. That may disappoint some readers, but I hope it makes others happy. lol... Thanks again!! :)

      Glad you are back again with some reflections of your feelings. I hope you are strong enough to fight back all those negative feelings and distracting elements. I hope your children are doing well. My blessings to all of you, Missy.

      Missy, I see you compare your life to that of wildflowers, and wish you could be like them and die off only to reshoot and flower again, maybe more desirable and beautiful each time. Welcome back.

      I love Jewel, and Foolish Games is a wonderful song.
