Poems

RUN

Every time I look outside
And see the grass so green
It makes me miss my only pride
The one thing that makes me, me

I miss the feel of the summer sun
Beating down on my head
I miss the sense of accomplishment 
After a workout as I lay in bed

I want to run. I want to fly
I want to be free again
I want to be the best I can
But I can't with all this pain

So now I have to sit and watch
As all my friends have fun
It makes me feel so dead inside 
Because now I cannot run.

LIFELESS

I awoke 
to a blanket of white.
Snow
had covered the ground.
I sat
and watched nothing happen, 
for nothing
was there to be found.

Nobody 
was wandering the streets.
Nothing
was making a sound.
Everything 
was still as stone.
Nothing 
was moving around.

"Lifeless",
I said to myself.
Crying!
On my pillow, I Pound!
Lifeless.
Like when I saw you last.
Before you went into the
ground.

Marie Harman 1998


ONE LITTLE ROCK

I am one little rock
so lonely and weak.
I am lost in the depth
of the deep, black sky,
and the light is all that I seek.

The stars that surround me
shine so much more brightly,
and are beautiful in every way.  
But I am just one
little rock
in the sky.
My fire
has
m

away.

BELIEVE AND LET GO

I’m feeling nervous today.

The pit in my stomach just won’t go away.

Sometimes I think I’m the cowardly lion.

Going through life with no one to rely on.

Everyone against me, I feel so alone.

The pit in my stomach, oh how it’s grown.

It’s taking me over, God what should I do?

Maybe I should trust, I need to rely upon you.

I still have my family, my loved ones, my friends.

I know that they’ll be with me up ’till the end.

No matter what, I will get through this, I know.

I just have to trust, to believe and let go.
