Loyal – poem

Loyal

heart and body broken
soul ascension on hold
dear Being of the Hereafter
why is this world so cold?
tried to reach beyond the boundary
while aching inside
swimming to that distant shore
carrying naught but my pride
conquered and reclaimed yet
peacetime still alludes
never ending knowledge
still dazed and confused
optimistic and hopeful
i’ll swear it on my grave
my bravery is all bluster
too angry to be afraid
freezing hot and burning cold
such contradictions i’ve known
swatted down when i try to fly
all of my focus is blown
unable to stabilize
enough to find my way home
pulled in many directions
yanked which every way
i am no closer
to going astray
