Finding peace

As I hang in balance

Between my human needs,

And my soul needs.

If I could,

I’d stay in your arms forever,

And melt into eternity,

But my body,

It asks to move and breathe again and again,

Until my soul is ready to journey back.

I Rebel

You might say I broke some rules along the way,

But whose rules were they,

Yours or mine?

Were they man made, woman made, society made, or human made?

Did I fail to follow tradition,

Abandon custom,

And bow down to duty,

For the sake of what?

Your happiness?

Or was I following my heart all along?

I broke some rules along the way,

But failed to bend to break my own,

And I’ve come to the place I know I belong,

Because I would never break my own.
