Set Free

A mountain of lies,
built one at a time,
increasing in size,
right before my eyes

A city of trust,
all covered with dust,
provoking disgust,
deceptions unjust

An ocean of pain,
swoops into my brain,
foreseeing great gain,
while breaking the chain

A field of bright dreams,
crops made of light gleams,
past flows off the stream,
soul feels clear and beams

A garden of hope,
pick each one to cope,
old slippery slopes,
are sealed envelopes.

An island of thoughts
displays inner force,
as life runs its course,
discover the source

  1. Oh, how fabulously written! Love it!. Won’t be in much for a few days. Had a TIA event to the point of not knowing who or where I was. That’s why I won’t be posting too much until this gets under control. I’ll do my best to read everything you write!

    1. Thank you so much. I am so sorry to hear that you had that experience. Glad you are healing and feeling better. May you recover quickly and effortlessly, my friend. Much love to you.❤️

  2. Wow Grace, you continue to mesmerize me with your work!!! This has to be one of my favorites of yours!!! The rhyming is just perfection!!!!! I knew I’d love this piece just by reading the title and it surpassed all my expectations!!!!!! Incredibly written, dear Grace! You’re an inspiration! 🖤🤗

  3. Powerful world-crafting. There’s a delightful degree of compartmentalization going on here which I adore, each landscape distinct in purpose and form. The mountain I think I enjoyed the most. Something about the looming, ever-growing mountain was appealing.
