Her gaze had
where her heart
Her feet were
to the wonders of
To see a plant
where she never could
with roots on foreign
Strange are life's
that love can be felt
while the heart is

Very gripping work of fiction, partly inspired by the authors own heroic journey of survival and triumph. Extremely well written. Real, yet creative.

Spring in the north
Fall in the south
Sky and seas, blue
Brown and green, lands
Sand on the shore,
Beneath the seas
Water on top
And under earth
Same heart that loves
Does also hate
Pain during birth
Release by death
Same child that cries
Shouts when grown up
In different shades
Yet beneath them
Flesh, just the same
Yet all languages
Have ‘I love you’
Yet we don’t much
Notice and care
Monuments of long gone eras,
Pyramids, the sphinx, Egypt itself,
Its ivory grandeur ground away,
By desert dust,
The hanging gardens of Babylon
Whispered of in fables lost to the ages,
Its location muddied and forgotten,
Atlantis most likely swallowed by the sea,
Barbarians burned the Library of Alexandria,
To dominate and control,
Ancient wonders of the human race,
Of nature and of man,
Faded into the earth's crust,
Lost to the ages,
And to humanity.
Going somewhere I want to leave
Gone gone gone
I'm going places unknown to man
Not seen by the naked eye I'm going to see World mysteries I'm
Going to see phenomens small and big
I'm going to see something even better
I'm going home and
Seeing my family
why look upon the stars
when your eyes hold the same light?
i sail along glistening seas
until i'm lost, out of sight
look for the seventh wonder
through the day and through the night
years pass; i grow weak.
why listen to the sea
when i can hear you speak?
without warning, waves grow violent
shattering me, a deafening shriek
why try to brave the storm
when my heart's been tossed asunder?
it was only when you gazed at her
that i found the seventh wonder.
Oh miss mother you take on all the pain of the world,
And you put it upon your shoulders.
You always feel like your not good enough,
You always try your A+ best.
You push all of your limits,
Even though you already have reached them.
You let your love flow over your children,
You want them to know that they are loved.
Those sweat and tears are not just for you,
But their for your children to.
