Leftover emotions...

Leftover emotions...

I still pretend to not be traumatized by my Past...

But down in my core exists the little boy

Who wished to break free...

He coveted to depart from uncertainty.

In a Big City, he Lived around many but wasn't inspired by anyone...

His Heart's desire was to bring togetherness, and understanding, with peace❗

If only someone could hear him when he speaks...

Now he writes Bold and Free.

However, strings of the Haunted past are what you read.

His heart is healed yet motionless carrying a Contusion...

He holds his head High and Thank God,

For Delivery through Confusion.

    Lonzo this is incredible and speaks to me on so many levels. The feeling you describe in lines 2-6... like we've been living the same life, man. You said it so beautifully. Subscribing to a like-minded Soul and glad to know you. Also, congrats on Top Story! Well-deserved. I'm putting together a course on Self-Reflection on Maven, by the way. Sharing some knowledge from a lot of years of introspection and am happy to help in any way I can. If you have any interest in diving into that past in a constructive way, I'd love to know your thoughts as I shape the course. Here's a link to the survey, would love your input if any is inspired. https://maven.com/forms/c4b937 Cheers Lonzo, congrats again and thank you for your courage in sharing this amazing piece of your heart with us.

    It takes tremendous strength to confront and overcome past traumas. The protagonist's desire for togetherness and peace despite their difficult experiences is admirable and inspiring.

    "Delivery through confusion" is such an impactful and beautiful idea.

  • Charlotte Flores2 months ago

    The imagery of the little boy wishing to break free and find peace is poignant and relatable. I can sense your desire to inspire and unite people, yet feel the weight of their haunted past. The final lines about holding one's head high and finding delivery through confusion are uplifting and hopeful. Overall, this is a powerful and beautifully written poem that resonates with me on a personal level.

    It is quite an amazing thing to finally meet someone that inspires you within the sea of other people that don't. It's my hope that you and everyone get to experience that. I love the reference to looking for the good in painful experiences. It took me a long time to understand hardships are gifts to help us. We just need to look for how to use them to our advantage. Great job. I could relate to it.
