Walls to break (Prose)


I’ve walked streets that carried on for miles

passed bevelled corners, walls strong and sturdy

not bending or allowing entry, so I held my face

to the sky, searching for the spot where happiness blooms

until I sight a single rose reaching out, begging me to stop

and smell the beauty of her fragrant petals, to disregard

the clouds that drop with heavy gloom

the walls that stand strong and sturdy

happiness comes in many forms

from opening up ourselves, for letting go

we aren’t perfect, walls can be broken

others can see in us, what sometimes we cannot

      • oh I blush now – so kind of you, I hope that you enjoy – if you hit the little beetle it randomly gives you a post, if you are seeking more poetry, you would have to select through the categories. I also have a site that I work on with another poet – if you have time lol – look at me inundating you – it’s http://wordsfromheretothere.wordpress.com/
        Ech you probably shouldn’t have said you want to read my work- see where it leads! 🙂 x

  1. Do you know, I’ve found myself a few times thinking that I’ve ‘used up’ all my words and have nothing else to say. Then the next moment I’m frantically scribbling and thanking whoever that there’s more to flow. This is beautiful, Jenny, and testimony to not only your prowess as a poet but to the fact that within each one there is a nugget of pure gold. So true that others often see in us what we cannot see in ourselves. Our critical selves need a kick sometimes. Write on! 🙂 x

  2. happiness does…and can be found in the most unusual places as well…i love the pic with this…revolutionary statement that….we need more graffiti of that nature….smiles….loved your rose..and esp on those grey days we need to look for them…
