My apologies for a very long absence. After much trial and tribulation, I have decided that I am going to release one of my former glory poems in my large volt of #throwback poems, for each chapter in Songs of a Lady Samsonite. I clearly had a lot to express back then, and with history repeating itself in certain aspects of my soundtrack, it's only fitting that I delve deep and bring out something that still feels relevant to me.
I wrote this particular one a very long time ago, in juniour high school to be more frank, so excuse some of the rough edges and the cheesiness. :)
"The greatest science in the world is heaven, and on earth it's love..." - Mother Theresa.
Once upon a time
I fell from the sky
Clouds passing by
Fell through time, nearly lost my mind
Lost my cloud base, everything I'd known
And wondered the face of the earth alone
Unfamiliar with loneliness, heart ache and pain
Depression became my second name
A fallen angel with a tainted face
I lost my shine when I fell from grace
True love was clearly hard to find
But something about you spelled "one of a kind"
Humility struck me like nothing before
You have no halo, you wear no glow
But how can this be?
A mortal so sweet
Without wings, you sweep me off my feet
Yet humbly and gently you made me whole
One touch of your hand and I turned to gold!
My earthly angel, you gave me life
My robes pure white, darkness is light
My heart is at ease, restoration of peace
And love now abides in me
I smile in my soul,
You took away my hurt
You made heaven a place on earth
Now I soar like a beautiful bird
For you made heaven a place on earth.
