Prisoner In Disguise

Energy and passion waiting to be released
a prisoner of my own thoughts
far to long
The energy and passion
of living and loving life
for what may be left
of mine
Thoughts rage to and fro
a mind gone wild
with what was , is and can be

but where does it start
and where does it end

Twisted thoughts go round
so many paths to follow
but to where do they lead

I need to be sure
of my footing
lest I stumble and fall
I want to live
I want to go on
perhaps find love once again
not in the images of the past

But those that tend the future
I am still alive
I still feel
I still have passion
I still can love

Your piece so eloquently stats that putting one foot in front of the other is the way of it;
To continue on in courage
To stand up to the heart’s fragility with determination.

Nicely done.

your last two strophes express so much. "No man (or woman) is an Island," in particular a woman. Go for it, dear lady.
Wishing you the very best, Jerry
