i have fallen

KristinaMari No Comments

I have fallen
on hard, hard days
and many more are yet to come

but if I overlook small signs of happiness
I will surely drown in all that ails me

at this moment

I am free

released from any ties that bind
by the freedom of the rain

all fears, stumblingblocks and hatred have been washed completely away

and I have the strength to await the many more
that lie along my path

a gift more sweet

KristinaMari No Comments

a gift more sweet
than one can see

a gift more precious
than it seems

this gift I treasure and hold so dear
This gift I cherish and keep so near

It’s what I look to
when there’s nothing to see

It’s what I grab for
when there’s nothing to be

all I ask for – all I need.

all I long for- all I please

is this gift – all there is

There’s nothing quite as good as this

for you are mine, you give it all
and together, we shall never fall

waiting and wondering

KristinaMari No Comments

waiting and wondering
where this road will lead
holding my breath so long
I think I’m turning blue

where will I be tomorrow
next week
a year from now, will I still be around?

Unable to withstand the pressure
no, not me
I can take it
I always have
and I will keep it up until the end of time

through hurricanes, tsunamis
and any heartaches that shall come my way

the world is hard
but not that hard

the wind, rain
and even you
can’t keep me down for long

Deep inside
I am alive
and shall forever be

so nevermind all the stupid things
that try to pressure me
I laugh, ha ha

as I gaze into the distance
the next big obstacle, I can faintly see

right is wrong

KristinaMari No Comments

right is wrong
and wrong is right

peace is war
and those that choose, do not fight

they win.

eyes closed, heart open wide

KristinaMari No Comments

eyes closed, heart open wide
life is easy.. when you choose not to decide

to live everyday as if it’s the last
no fret or worry to days that have passed

today is it’s own
with no ties to yesterday
simply going on in this infinite game we play

no hopes of trying to win
no enemies to defeat
only the yearn to continue the game and always to compete

to play the game
the best I can before my time is gone
to make the best of every day despite how long it seems to go on

here I am, Cinderella

KristinaMari No Comments

here I am, Cinderella
dancing at the ball
holding you in my arms
presiding over all

hoping that this moment
will somehow always last
and never sneak so slyly
into the forgotten past

wanting the song
never to end
don’t want to
have to begin again

seeing my kingdom
when I look in your eyes
couldn’t be happier
if i could grow wings and fly

If only I wore glass slippers
and you a crown of gold
we could live happily ever after
and have our story told and told

inside out

KristinaMari No Comments

inside out
or right side in
who’s to say
which way you live

walk around or sit down hard
just be happy on the path you’ve found

don’t give up
get sucked in

only you know
what shape you’re in

slowly watch it all fall down

KristinaMari No Comments

slowly watch it all fall down
the throne goes first
and then the crown

Slowly see,
it’s telling me

that nothing’s as important
as it seems

funny how

KristinaMari No Comments

funny how things turn out
when lives so strange
find themselves on a single plain

when two separate ways
lead to one
and two people realize that for once
an answer has come

the clouds have cleared
and left me here
standing high and feeling free
looking at you, can finally see
simple magic in your eyes
and a few things i thought God had tried to hide

questions asked long before
are no longer mysteries
for now, finally I’ve reached the shore

goodness shines

abiding out of bounds

KristinaMari No Comments

abiding out of bounds
where no other can be found

on the wrong side of the street
where there are very few wandering feet

Only me and no one else
playing the hand that I was somehow dealt

Participating in the game from over here
In a place where no one realizes I stand near

Sort of like an invisible pawn
moving around searching for the dawn

To shine it’s soft sweet light on me
to open their eyes and let them see

The face that i give unto the word
the ideas I share and love I hurl

To something great, to make a change
to give the world a little less pain

I strive each day
to give some hope
to those like me that have to cope

with all the pain and hard defeat
that comes with living each day
on the wrong side of the street

erase the day

KristinaMari No Comments

erase the day
the debt is paid
no more bricks
the wall is laid

push it down
no more throwing stuff around

the storm is passed
and we are left a jumbled mass

sift and sort through the debris
you and me, down on our knees

the sun went down
we almost drowned

morning’s brought a brand new day
we’re finally on the path
going the right way!
