Finding Your Muse is Poetry

I present a selection of poems about being ignored and blossoming into the person that I am today.

A Voice Left Unheard

For much of my life I was ignored and taken for granted.

A Voice Left Unheard


Her hand reached out
And no one came
Patiently waiting
She was not to blame

She opened her heart and
Poured out her words
They shook their head
And cried upsurd

They preached to her
and would not listen
her spirit cried in pain
Their humanity missing

Her words said in sincerity
They did not believe her
Words crafted with clarity
Would not redeem her

These problems occurred
Because of wrong thinking
Their arrogance, painful
Her faith in them sinking

She should not waver
And so she was strong
Yet still they insisted
Her thinking was wrong

With the cards stacked against her
She tried as she might
They kept on insisting do
Give up the fight

Her efforts were thwarted
Time and again
They did not believe anything
She said

So she disengaged from them
One by one
She needed a friend
And found she had none

The Muse Within


The Muse Within is a poem about my awakening as a young woman with a creative talent. As you may have gathered from my previous writings, I was never supported or acknowledge for much of my life.


The Muse Within


The voice of the child was silent
Never allowed to express her point of view
The force of the storm grew violent
Within her soul so blue

How could they squash the essence?
Of whom this child was
To neglect the muse within her
While justifying their cause

Destroying the yearning passions
Of her tender heart
Demanding a different person
From the very start

The fires that burnt inside her
Lay dormant for a while
But the child became an adult
To develop her own style


A new direction embarked upon
The journey to begin
Forever nurturing her spirit song
And the melody within

Her soul began to open
As she shared it with the world
Her heart flows with love and laughter
She's no longer that little girl

The Essence of me

The Essence of Me, is about my discovery about my ability to write and share my life and thoughts with the world. I don’t see myself as a poet but I do see myself as a good writer.

The Essence of Me

Long before my earthly incarnation
I was spirit love and adoration
On central stage among the stars
I circled the planets Venus and Mars
Gestation period cold and dark
Brought forth the rhythm of my heart
Mother's womb, portal on earth
I waited for my precious birth
To this world I would be born
A winter rose amid the torn
Unprepared to brave the quest
I could not let my spirit rest
For there were those who could not see
My heart and soul; the essence of me
They wished that I would disappear
Among the clouds in total fear
The angels heard my spirit cry
My talent they could not deny
One sheltered me beneath her wing
Until she heard my true heart sing
Spirit awakened robust and alive
Creative juices began to strive
The world took notice of my plight
My strength endured to set things right
For now they understood very well
How they created my living hell
My crafted words today I share
Among the world with tender care
I am who I was meant to be
Aligned with my perfect destiny
For now my future will be bright
I know that I was born to write

As I stood there watching,
You hurt my life.
Became the horror,
The nightmarish wife.
Who stole my honour,
And Dumped my pride.
As I wept in pain,
You laughed deep inside.

With demon gluttony,
And greed for wealth.
Showed no consideration,
For my ailing health.
All you did back then,
Was break my soul.
Leaving me broken,
And hard to console.

I took my wealth,
And told you leave.
For your life deceit,
None did me believe.
Until I said it all,
And confessed to Friend.
Who held me tighter,
Saying don't ever end.

Pulling me closer,
Whispering in love.
Showing me truth,
From heavens Above.
I learnt of your treachery,
Of Hurting her life.
All because she in,
To be my Wife.

Taking me completely,
And just as I am.
She cried on my shoulder,
I to all did slam.
For she held me forever,
With Voice of Love.
As I moved everything,
From heaven Above.

Revealing the demon,
You were to Me.
As I listened to all,
Within her family.
Knowing her pain,
Was caused by you.
All because you showed,
Your junk in blue.

Now be gone forever,
For we are in Love.
We are with Angels,
In Heavens Above.
May you now burn,
And Roast in hell.
For your atrocities,
I this to world didn't tell.

With that he turned,
And held my hand.
Came on bended knee,
From distant land.
Whispering Marry ME,
I just need your now.
We will be together,
We will get through somehow.
