Disassembled Debris (Pleides)

Disassembled debris
Draconian anger
Dreary with drudgery
Dragged down….. dusty soiled wings
Disappointed dreamer
Delusions’ ball and chain
Depression signs its’ name

I hate mess and little thankless tasks that make me feel like a drudge. Over time I get mad and feel dragged into a grey life where everything becomes a task or obligation and I begin to regret all my decisions related to how I got to be where I am in my life. Breaking that chain is very difficult but essential if I am to ever have peace in my heart.

Lifetrails (Cyhydedd Hir)


Verdant forest trails,
follow hill and dale
to vistas unveiled;
Lifepaths unwrapped.

Rugged cliffs to scale.
Choice, push on or bail;
continue or fail?
Lifecourse unmapped.
