Wilder

How did I manage to find
such a kindred spirit,
a wilder soul,
in a world so full of
beauty and pain?
How is it that I am
so
lucky?

Words below are from @wilderpoetry. Her words made me cry. I am forever grateful to be her friend.

written for @thesarahdoughty
one of the most selfless
hearts i have ever had
the pleasure to know

she.
she is life.
she is light.
a brilliance
that gives
my eyes
and heart
hope.
purpose.

to know
her is
to know
love.
the undying
kind-
the kind
you hold
on to
no matter
the risk
because
in the end
it makes
your spirit
more alive.
more real.

in her
presence
i am never
far from
home.
we walk,
knowing
doubt will
fall into the
shadows
that we leave
behind allowing
us to embrace
the parts we
want to keep.

until we get
there, i will
forever be
walking on
this path,
growing
with you.

thank you
for your
company.

  1. Waking up from a dream,
    And finding it to be true,
    Sarah Doughty, my friend,
    I’m really happy for you!

    You’re a writer who not only wins a reader’s heart but
    also earns his/her respect.
    Cheers! 😉

  2. There are essentially two paths people can take when they have had a painful life. They can pass it on to others, onto their children, and watch their misery spread. Or they can choose that they want to pass on better than what they received, make the world brighter. I’m not sure how people are able to choose the second path when the first pulls them, but I’m thankful that there are those who fight every day to try to make the world better.
