Divine Light

Divine Light

Aimee Treakle, Friends of Guest House, May 28, 2020

I stare at her reflection.

Caught in the spark of spirit twinkling in her eyes.

The skin sags, the smile twists, but the eyes… The eyes shine with the soul within.

Windows to an innocent heart.

My very own piece of divine light.

Dreams

Dreams

Aimee Treakle, Friends of Guest House, May 28, 2020

Dreams, fantasies dancing in the dark.

Puzzles piecing together in my consciousness.

Bitter memories flowing into sweet lessons.

Building blocks for a sounder morning.

Dark past translating into tomorrow’s take to be told.

full circle

full circle

i have fear

can i be normal

i have fear

can i change my way of life

i have fear

can i change my thinking

i have fear

can i stand TALL

i have fear

can i be a good mom

i have fear

of the unknown

i have fear

can they be better than me

i have fear all the time

but as i wake

the sun comes in

my heart slows

as the fears slip away

my heart fills with hope

i become stronger everyday

NOW

NOW

Aimee Treakle, Friends of Guest House, May 22, 2020

Now I am quiet

sitting still as the

sands fall.

Now I am waiting

for a new day to

come bright with

a new future.

NEXT

NEXT

Aimee Treakle, Friends of Guest House, May 22, 2020

Next is the idea of

what has not yet become

it is all that will be

but next leaves behind

all that is and was.

For a long time I lived

with no concept of next

and only recently have

I been able to grasp

the concept of

the existence of

tomorrow.

two steps behind..in my mind…

NEXT ill reach my goal…

NOW do i keep trying?..

Next ill be smiling..

NOW my mind has won…

NEXT ill take back control…

NO longer tired of trying…

Changing Self

Changing Self

Chazcie Heflin, Friends of Guest House, May 22, 2020

changing self

the path i take

ending relationships

the steps to get there

beginning life a new

the choice before me

not knowing  where to go

the decision to make

love pulls me home

the answer to my prayers

treasure of staying

the reflection of thought

self reliant

the 2 paths of a road

do it now

which way to go left or right

-Chazcie Heflin

I Will

Make of Me

Make of Me

 Aimee, Contessia, Tarkeshia, Chazcie, Ayla, Candace, Friends of Guest House, May 7, 2020

Make of my mind a fertile field

Where I cultivate beautiful ideas.

Make of my mind a calm sea

Where I can find me.

Make of my adventure

Where I go to explore.

Make of my life a beginning.

Make of my journey

So I can travel the right direction.

Make of my essence for

It is ready.

Belonging

A group poem written by Aimee, Contessia, Chazcie, Tarkeshia, Friends of Guest House, April 30, 2020

May you love yourself despite the fear.

May you find the courage to stay alive.

May you find the meaning in your life.

May you find belonging.

For you do belong.
