'Water'

Water gushed over parched land fractures are slowly filled left by drought terrain humidified by cold water pouring down replacing warmth everything ice-covered Water set in ice form fluffy and breathtaking an impish sting to its beauty arctic my clothes are drenched twirl around with outstretched arms tears are forgotten By: Wilma Neels Contest Name: Nature, Four In One

'A Thousand Steps'


A thousand steps in between 
who I was and who I am now 
do I wonder about the detours? 
do I wish I took the dirt road instead? 

Would my path have been smoother if I said no instead of yes? 
Would the worries have been less then what they are today? 

I guess I’ll never know, 
unless I go back in time 
choose a different path 
choose the least attractive offer and run with it

pipe dreams that is all my journey back in time would be 
‘cause I would not have met you 
and you would not be reading these words.... 

Everything in life boils down to an immaculate plan, 
it may not be my ideal plan or yours 
but in the end the voyage continues 
whether we want to or not…

‘Cause it is all part of the bigger picture 
and 
in that image is your life and mine... 

We just got to embrace the journey 
no matter how uncertain it might be...

'Smothered No More'


Bounded by fear - 
Do you still remember that?
When I would build my walls;
I would let no one in
I would look for ways to cut them off
Especially those who got too close 

Do you remember when I said?
It was for their own good 
In the meantime you knew it was the fear talking
Afraid of the consequences
Feeling that if I let them in, 
They might be hit by misfortune

I never thought it would come to this
I never thought the fear would dissipate –

Replaced by faith 
Replaced by the knowledge 
That everything that happened 
Had to happen

In order for me to let go
To stop myself from stifling my growth 

I needed to embrace the pain, 
Embrace the laughter,
Even the fear of losing loved ones 

I needed to let go – 

I needed to experience the hurt 
I needed to experience the joy
I needed to experience the fear
I needed to fail, 
I needed to fall

So I can stand today
Knowing that no matter what happens
My mind,
My body 
And
My soul 
Is ready to go on –

That fear can be toppled by faith 

If I focus on me 

Focus on today and not on my past

'Memories'



Across a noisy plane Where crowds gather You can hear their chatter and laughter I can still hear your heart beating Even though we are past that stage Of breathing because we have to The only thing I feel is you The only thing you feel is me It is more a case of it is the only feeling That keeps us going In anarchy and confusion This makes sense Feeling you Breathing you Even if it’s only through memories They sometimes talk the loudest

'The Beating of Hearts'


We could pretend it’s the end, start loving each other all over again I know you want to, you still look at me in that way as if to say, "I want to make you mine" I knew that day I've lost it, could not control the beating of my heart they say a woman's heart beats faster than a man's that first night I couldn't tell the difference it was like your heart knew mine needed yours the music it made, had me floating all I could think of was how handsome you looked still don’t fathom, you thinking I had this to die for smile I just knew you held me captive, chemistry never played a part we were just two parts of a puzzle connecting, completing in the end answering all the questions my heart once asked now here we are, it's been a while yet it still feels like it’s that first time when I realized without question, you are the beating of my heart

'Remember to Smile'

Remember to smile Even if you are dying inside Remember to hold your head up high Even if your knees feel like they want to yield Remember to cry on the inside Where the Lord knows your heart Even when you feel like giving up Remember the scars on His hands He never gave up on you He is still cheering for you His unfailing love, Has been present even when you could not love yourself People will love you today, Tomorrow you will be a distant memory They will hurt you today, Tomorrow they will act like nothing has changed Remember to smile; it will move your soul Remember to smile; Tomorrow you try again…

THE PUPPET MASTER

This cup is for you
for bluffing yourself 
and for thinking you know me,
here’s to you for pretending to care 
and make me believe that you do,
here’s to you for 
being the puppet-master
in the puppet show,
which is my life
I would like the strings back
before they are beyond repair
I would like to be the master 
of my own destiny
for a change
I would like to control where
my journey ends 
and what happens 
on the way there
but with you as the puppet-master
it’s virtually impossible
so this is me
begging you
for the strings
that contain
every facet of my life…
please be so kind 
as to leave it at the door 
on your way out…

'Sober thoughts'


You know how I sometimes wish life would be easier then I realize with easy comes self reliance and we can’t depend on ourselves the air that we breathe comes from somewhere - a higher power that power decides whether we stop breathing or continue living so if your days feel like it’s getting tougher if you feel all your strength has deserted you it has not; you still have the ability to think you can still embrace what life offers you even if its heartache, tough times, difficult people somewhere out there someone would take all your difficult moments just to experience life in all its facets

'Kisses of the Rain'

After a night of rain, the sun, its shimmer, a welcome like no other. A new day starts with such promise, an array of flora across the pasture a gazelle leaping all over the place. The kisses of the rain still visible a delight for my eyes to behold.
