Nothing Gold Can Stay – Robert Frost


Nature’s first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Mirror


Looking in the mirror

Hating what I see

I don’t recognize my own face

Surely that’s not me

 

So I paint my face with lies

Covering up what’s inside

Hiding my face from the world

Pushing my feelings aside

 

Trying to make it one more day

Trying to escape my past

I try to hide it away

But it keeps coming back

 

Getting caught up in old ways

I’m stuck in my own sin

How can I escape it

When my sin comes from within?

 

I’m fighting every day

Deciding who I want to be

Struggling to find who I am

Should I let my past define me?

 

It really isn’t fair

This isn’t how I should be

I’m looking in the mirror

But not recognizing what I see

Circle of Hate Poem


Hate

What started everything

 

Hurt

Saying anything to make the hurting stop

 

Anger

Lips spewing lies

 

Guilt

Making my heart heavy

 

Sadness

Weighing me down

 

Shame

Hanging my head

 

Sorry

Asking for forgiveness

 

Regret

Unable to forget

 

Clinging

Never forgetting what happened

 

Hate

Hating myself

 

How can I expect to be forgiven,

if I can’t forgive myself?
