Poetry: Your Dreams

Catch your dreams

Paint them on the night sky

Don’t let one day pass

Without you giving them life.

Catch your dreams

Look them in the eye

Don’t waste another moment

Or second in time.

Catch your dreams

Hold them dear and close

Etch them into your heart

Never let them go.

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.

Poetry: Hiding Away

By Monica C. Voskamp

Hide, hide away.
Under the covers,
Under bulky sweaters.

Hide, hide away
With the oreos
With the ice cream.

Hide, hide away
Deny, deny away
All those feelings.

You can hide,
You can deny,
You can lie.

But darling your life
Is worth far more
Than hiding away.

Poetry: Guiding Light

By Monica C. Voskamp

She finally saw the stars

Long been told and known as

An evil curse.

Now staring at these lights

She saw they weren’t anything 

Like she had heard.

The tiny orbs were beautiful,

Divine pinpricks in the sky

Contraire to a curse.

Many years she had believed

The night time glowing stars would

Be the death of her.

But all this time,

Those ‘cursed stars’ actually were

Her guiding light.
