Worthy Crown

She walks for miles,
to hand out smiles,
will go the length,
to provide strength,
feels guilt inside,
disguised as pride,
but can’t say “no”,
so love won’t go.

Her big brown eyes,
are filled with sighs,
silently cries,
till tears run dry,
then plays pretend,
supports her friends,
always so strong,
shelters all storms.

The perfect days,
are on their way,
sun shines bright rays,
conquers all grays,
the time to bend,
finally ends,
she makes a choice,
to free her voice.

Her hands still help,
everyone else,
quenches her thirst,
learns she comes first,
life turns around,
presents a crown,
joy fills her face,
she shines with grace.

Embrace all possibilities,
the future holds no guarantees.
Ignore all probabilities,
adjusting sensibilities.

Embrace all possibilities,
whats meant to be, will always be.
A win or loss holds the same key
that leads to fated destiny.

Embrace all possibilities,
draw strength from letting hopes fly free.
Stop doubting capabilities,
have faith in self abilities.

Embrace all possibilities,
so open paths are clear to see.
Illuminating brilliantly,
as each step shines infinitely.

Search and Find

Heart of honey
may sound funny,
at times too sweet,
to feel complete.

Heart with pure love
sent from above,
no one sees it,
never quite fits.

Heart turns concrete
searching the street,
always hurting,
self subverting.

Heart becomes numb
feeling so dumb,
lost all purpose
in this circus.

Heart learns to cope,
creates new hope,
shining so bright,
attracts delight.

Heart made so pure
is self assured,
connects with soul,
heals and feels whole.

Inner Acceptance

the cuts,
hope traumas flee.
all shoves,
into gold keys.
truths are set free.
white doves,
bring what will be.
thoughts I could see.
to love,
all parts of me.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Self Forgiveness

With lowered eyes
and a hushed mouth,
silence my sighs,
while in mid route.

Plastered smiles fly,
push sorrows down.
Happy disguise,
covers deep frowns.

Frantic inside,
loud voices shout,
hurt and chastised,
in and throughout.

Draw breath in tight,
knees hit the ground,
faith flows up high,
angelic sounds.

Sweat beads baptize,
hopes swirl around,
wishes arise,
dissolving clouds.

Stop to revise
regrets and doubts.
Life provides light,
that clear and sprout.
