Not What it SeemsCold hands swooping in.Life once abundant uponThe Earth, now deathIs all but imminent.The peaceful sun onceStaying through the nightNow sets to sleep early,Saying goodbye. Months ofCold setting Summers warmthTo rest. Welcoming Jack Frosts'Cold Winter breath.Snow shall fall, smallCrystals in the sky;Damning the flowersTo die. But even afterAn ice storm sets in,A rainbow shall appear,Over top the destruction.Winter, a blessing in disguise;Look closer! For within eachcrystal, the light reflects whatIs really inside.Gaia's cycle of Earthly demise;Death setting in, slowly taking life.But flourishing in a setting bloom.Flowers growing in mid-summer afternoon.And as Winter sets in once again,Think not of the death that it oftenBrings; but the beauty of a snowflakeThat shall fall over and over again.
Gaia's SmileThe days of laughing withFriends have slowed down;A once beautiful smileCalmly plastered uponHer beautiful face nowJust a thing of yesterdays past.The leaves have begun fallingSlowly; a once spring green,Now a peaceful autumn orange.Flowers that once shown in theSunlight have begun to sleepPeacefully as the daysWind down. The sun who used toStay and smile down untilChildren were snugly tucked in bedHas begun to rest earlier in the day.The moon now smiles, her gentle faceShining in a blanket of stars toGreat busy passengers of theRailroad of life. Gentle raindropsFalling upon the Earth, Gaia cryingFor her fallen children.And people of yesteryear slowly climbUp from their graves, and move on intoThe next plane of life; Leaving thisPlace, and all its wonder to go toA new place of beauty; a final restingGround where they shall slumber in aPocket of clouds, and smile downUpon loved ones yet to make the passageInto the next life.
She met an AngelShe was broken. A girlWith car crash eyes;Said to never make it.Her mother constantlyFeeding her harsh lies.She fled her life;Dosing herself, stabbingNeedles to her veins,Anything to take awayThe everlasting pain.Cuts scattered acrossThin arms; trying to getBy, but living day toDay, in a perceived lie.An unloving mother,Who drove her innocentHeart away; flee fromThe hatred, young Traci,So you may survive anotherDay.Come to a town, dressedIn dancing lights; walkUpon the stage, an angelWatching from below; TakingYour hand, not letting go."I'll save you from your pain,"She whispers into your ear,But a defense comes up,And all you feel is fear."I assure you," She speaks,"I shall never cause you harm.I shall shield from pain, PullYou from this wicked place, soIt shall never happen again."A smile breaks across her face,As her words seep in. LackingIn trust, but taking her asA friend.In time they shall heal,One anothers wounds.Smiles set upon their face
