Strength Holds

by Joanna

It’s you and you and you
There is no other somebody
Standing next to you
There will only be one voice
That emanates from within
It’s time to swallow the lead
Put down the sword
Rest in peace
Not pieces
I find the folds of the linens
Soothing between my fingers
As I follow my thoughts wandering
Tearing into the realms
Of contemplation
Transforming anger
Into confidence
Numbers into ideas
There lies but one true path
Amidst the thorns and bramble…
