Forever Foe

You were here when the world began, Are you bored with the antics of man? Why do you choose to move so slow? Why do you tease and torture me so? Why must you expedite our death, Continue beyond our last breath? You’re the only healer of pain, I must wait for you once again.Continue reading “Forever Foe”

Painted Child

Dear painted child, do not hide,Thy roots and innocence inside.Those that mock and shun thy birth,Cannot see thy priceless worth.Dear painted child, can they not see,Thy light inside, thy true beauty?Wilt they not deign to understand,Thy heritage of distant land?God made thee true–be free and wild,Be bold and proud, my painted child!Copyright © 2022 BrandonContinue reading “Painted Child”

Creature of the Night

Silent creature of the night, Dimly featured by pale moonlight,Quitely cutting through the dark, Wisely judging its chosen mark,Balanced gracefully o’er the ground, Talons splayed, striking down,Noiseless attack from out the air, Helpless prey unaware,As the sunlight lingers near, The owl and moon have disappeared.Copyright © 2022 Brandon Ellrich Thanks for reading!

Colors bursting across the sky, Soul is thirsting to rise and fly, Into the air, escaping life, Away from care, worry, strife; Above the earth, toward the sun, Full of mirth, reckless fun. No path to trace from those before, An open space, my open door. My spirit sails on endless seas, A course unveiledContinue reading “Escape”

Holding On

It’s hard to stay up when they keep knocking you down, It’s difficult to stay positive in a negative world, Your voice can’t be heard when you don’t make a sound, Want to be a grown woman but you’re just a little girl. Things could be better, but you don’t want to try, What doesn’tContinue reading “Holding On”
