Poetry: All You Need to See

By Monica C. Voskamp

Staring at the page

Lost by blotted lines

Lost in the journey

Lost in time.

If only we could

Turn back time.

If only we could

Change our minds.

If only we could

See things differently.

If only is not real

So sorry honey,

But face the facts

It’s time to move on.

Read the next line.

Leave yesterday’s world.

Write the next words.

Let go of the hurting.

You still have now.

Turn a new key.

Unlock a different door.

Travel a better road.

Create great memories.

You still have now

And this is all,

You really need to see.

Poetry: Go Unafraid

By Monica C. Voskamp

Go into the new year, unafraid.

For too long you’ve sat in shadows.

For too long you’ve wasted precious time.

For too long you blew precious energy.

Go into the new year, unafraid.

Chase your dreams.

Sail new seas.

Explore new lands.

Go into the new year, unafraid.

Live bold.

Live courageously.

Live breathless in anticipation.

Live in your goals.

Don’t just write them.

Breathe them every day

Until they become your natural

New rhythm.

Go into the new year, unafraid.

Destiny is waiting,

She’s calling out your name

Just go, unafraid.

Poetry: Blank Canvas

By Monica C. Voskamp

 

Look up to the sky

See the ocean of snowfall white

Mesmerize your sight

Awaken your soul

With new life.

 

Look up to the sky

See the future breathless for you

Spark your vision

Inspire your dreams

With new life.

 

Look up to the sky

See the beautiful canvas bright

Dissolve past memories

Welcome your today

With new life.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤

Poetry: No More

By Monica C. Voskamp 


Hear the words of my heart

Screaming silence

Hear the echoing of pain

Deafening roar.

 

No more, No more

No more times to hurt me

It’s high time I looked

Offenders in the eye

No more no more

No more will you hurt me.

 

See the beauty

Maddening loss

See the innocent

Ruined furniture.

 

Objects of selfish

Pride and lust

Greed and hate

Hear the innocent cry,

Atomic bomb.

 

No more, No more

No more times to hurt me

I look offenders in the eye

No more no more

No more will you

Ever hurt me.

 

Colours splattered

Bruises made

Foundations cracked

Heritage lost.

 

What does it matter

When the past

Entangles, cripples innocent

While the offenders

Walk out.

 

No more, No more

No more times to hurt me

I look offenders in the eye

No more no more

No more dare you hurt me.

 

Piecing together

Burning Ashes

Creating abstract art.

Recreating her

Present chaos

Making loss

Astounding gain.

 

Lost whisper

In the wind

Bleeds into a song

Resilience, hope

Strength to carry on.

 

She raises her

Ashes charred

A mesmerizing

New beauty.

 

She raises her

Soul patched

Work of Art

New beginning.

 

No more, No more

No more times to hurt me

I leave offenders cruelty

No more, no more

This, my goodbye.

 

Always hope. Always believe. Always love. 💕
