Poetry: SOS

By Monica C. Voskamp

Broken, cut straight open,

I didn’t know how much

The wounding hurt for I

Swallowed whole the pill of numb.

Broken, cut straight open,

I didn’t know I’d feel

The accumulated pain

Pound my punctured arteries.

Broken, cut straight open,

I didn’t realize my stupor

So obviously bleeded out

SOS, I need some help.

Poetry: Listen

By Monica C. Voskamp

The universe is speaking

And patiently waiting

For you to listen.

Slow your worry down

Stop this hurried demanding

For life to be solved right now.

Take this moment of time

Let your whole being pause

For just a little while to listen.

The universe is pleading

Human, please stop now

Stop all this nonsense and listen.

You’ve been so caught up

In all the noise,

In all the judgements,

In all the headlines strife.

I’m gently inviting you

To let that heaviness go,

Let it go and listen.

Poetry: Dare

By Monica C. Voskamp

Dare to consider.

Dare to be right or wrong.

Dare to inquire, change and grow.

Dare to listen, without pretence.

Dare to drink in, only silence.

Dare to speak, move on and let go.

Most of all dare to choose

The essence of you.

Dare, to dare.

Poetry: Write Your Page

By Monica C. Voskamp

I turned the page and found

Blank white with no scribbles.

There were no mistakes.

No scratched out lines.

No misspellings.

I savoured the moment,

So freshly untainted.

But within a few minutes

I blurbed splotches of ink.

I didn’t cringe.

I didn’t cry.

I simply acknowledged and moved on.

I look at blank pages today

With less judgement and more grace

I hold room for myself and mistakes

With freedom to learn and grow

At my own pace.

Life isn’t meant to be

The perfect fairytale story no,

Life is quite the tangled opposite

As most of us from experience know.

But no matter the harshness

There is still the magic

There is still the sacred

Written on every page.

The moment you see it

You live a little different.

You live with more grace.

So go write your pages

You’ll find the magic overlaps

In every single day.
