For When You Feel Overwhelmed

By Robert AneiroPublished about a year ago 1 min read
That's a deer in the center. I tried :D

Scattered emotions run their course,

Through everyone's body with violent force,

Sometimes, we make mistakes that hurt,

Those we care for, by being curt,

They say the forest is a healing place,

A place, not to hide your sorrows,

But to look for happier tomorrows,

Where if you want, you can frolic with deer,

Or sit on a log and be austere,

But what is it that we all fear,

Ourselves, our friends, it isn't clear,

Scattered through time and place we may be,

Each of us humans, with hearts that are free,

And when two humans start to connect,

A bond that is forged through love and respect,

Only then can you see that you're not alone,

Only then can you see your way home,

The emotions you cursed, not a moment before,

You bless, and embrace, right down to your core.

One of my favorite hobbies is thinking. I love to create fantasy realms in my mind, be it for stories or poetry. The one thing I was missing was a proper platform to share my fantasies. It's time I got Vocal. Hope you enjoy :D
