Wednesday Song

Falling Girl by JMonzani at deviantart

There are many ways to catch someone who is falling:

The sister reaches for her sister’s hand.
The woman in the office sees a tear and offers her shoulder.
The part-time colleague sings, recites a poem, in perfect time.
A stranger’s hand, extended.

There are many ways to fall:

Un-noticed, uncomplaining.
Uptight, wedged–in, unable to say one word:
Screaming til the neighbours hear
Not knowing that you fall at all.

In my heart, a grain of fear becomes as large as a planet,
it mingles with my history:
creates a tide, a shore, an ocean.

Wow, beautiful and moving poetry Chevs. Please keep writing!

Came into the office today to find lots of little notes/quotes stuck on the doors, thought I would share some:

'Fall with pride because scars are just physical proof of a memory filled with guts and glory' (Indiana)Love this one and very fitting for todays blog.

'As you move through life, set aside good ideas and give them to others to encourage and inspire' (Daniels)

'When you are exhausted from trying, try just one more time' (Feros)

'Life does not offer what you deserve, life offers you what you demand' (Olabode)

U - you
Everything (Taufao)

Sorry, almost forgot that this is not my blog! Love you flower x x x
