To The…

To the past, may it forever rest

To the future, may we hope for the best

To the love, may it fill our hearts

To the envy, may it not tear us apart

To the passions, may they intensely live

To the pains, may we learn to forgive

To the courage, may it drive us forward

To the fear, may it remain just a word

To the trust, may it never fault us

To the regret, may it leave us thus

To the friends, may they always stay near

To the prospects, may they improve each year

I Wish

I wish to turn back the clock and make everything right

I wish I could return to that point and fight not flight
I wish for the chance at the happiness that I had always longed for
I wish for a lighter baggage to fit through the proverbial door

I wish for the fear to vacate my soul
I wish for the ghosts to haunt me no more
I wish for the normalcy that others possess
I wish for the passion that would cause me to digress

I wish for a second try devoid of doubt
I wish for the opportunity to stand out
I wish to let the past rest in its grave
Or else my poor future I cannot save

Settle

Settling a debt I didn’t owe

Settling for a seed that cannot grow

Settling to avoid a truth I know

Harsh is the light shining bright

Harsh is the darkness you have to fight

Harsh is the truth I already know

Poison seeping through my veins

Poison, invisible without a name

Poison is the truth I painfully know

Settling is to choose and not to choose

Settling is the fear that made you lose

Settling is the truth I’ve always known

Fear

FearFear is a warning 

A signal to stop and think

Reassess your life


A strong stabbing pain

Ordering intervention

Growing over time


Indecisiveness 

A paralysing feeling

Hiding true meaning


Trusting your instinct

Will kill the horror within

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

The Effects of Modern Expectations

The line between what is real and what is not is blurred and faded away

Thus the demons and doubts in my head decided to come out and play

As they run around, I sit here on this silent night and pray and pray

Wishing that God would hear my prayer and save my soul today

For these fears and anxieties are driving me insane in every way

And the darkness has consumed my all, leaving  behind ashes of grey

But I still dream of a future not too far, one that’s here to stay

So I continue to plead in prayer “Dear God, please return what has been taken away”

And once again I hope they’re heard, for the madness I cannot delay
