It does not rule me
The anger, guilt, and spite
Despite conflicts endured
Regarding wrong and right

Through anger, we were blinded
Broken and confused
Forgiveness, humbleness
Things that we refused

I don't hold your blame
It was not your deed
And neither was it mine
Now from pain, you're freed

I watch as you descend
With wings, and I salute
Your love, I won't condemn
Your love, I can't refute

You've gifted me with life
I breathe, I feel, I love
And all because of you
Your guidance from above

Our fights don't define us
Our conflict wasn't true
Our love has conquered all
And everything we do

I'm guided by your light
As you are laid to rest
Your love is like a treasure
Like hope inside a chest

I'm sorry, my dear mother
For all we've done before
I love you more than life
And through me, you're reborn

Now, I take my stand
I breathe and fight for you
No more guilty sadness
Its time to start anew

For after your demise
You aren't truly gone
And as I live my life
You and I are one.

Absolutely, and may I have your permission to copy what you've written to turn into a wall poster for my house.

It would mean a lot.

Ohhh yes, most definitely.

Writing on ATS has become a past time for me, yet I still haven't gotten writing status yet.

I'm balancing my stories with school work.


I entered the last contest, but it kinda fell through because of that bombing in Boston.

I'll keep an eye out for the next one. Can't wait.

Of course! This poem is exclusively for you, I sign the rights of it over to you.

You're its custodial parent now.


As far as I'm concerned, YOU wrote it.

Much love.

Well you brought a little joy to a sad person today so I don't care what anyone says.

Never give up the gift you have with words.

And I mean that from the heart.

Peace

Wow, hey everyone! Nice work there, XxxAngelusxxX, Hope Chest, did she write that for you? And zysin, haven't heard from you in a while! I've been thinking of starting writing on here myself.

I have a band, but I've never been much of a good writer.

Yes, I made a special request and was very surprised at the response.

In a very positive way.

That's very cool. I'm glad I found this thread. XxxAngelusxxX has some pretty good writing skills from what I have seen. And when I saw the name, I thought "Wow, I wonder if Hope Chest noticed this" so I came to check it out.

And zysin being here was totally unexpected. You should all come get free tarot readings!

I really like your writing. Please "make" time to write. I look back on my life and realize how many times I should have expressed my self through writing. Let it become something that is integral to yourself. What you are will become more and more visible as you do so. You are a writer.

I love drawing too.


I'm also tossing around the idea for a post-apocalyptic story, in a setting kinda like the Fallout games.

If I start it any time soon, Ima post the first chapter.

Thats just straight up beautiful. You have what I believe the kids these days refer to as "mad skillz
".

You should have confidence in your poetic talents. Wordsmithing of this level should be appreciated and embraced, both by the reader and the author.

For reals? Thank you


I'm kinda surprised, cause I never took writing classes or anything. I just do it occasionally for fun.

I'm kinda happy everyone likes it.


Thanks guys! And also, I take requests, friends.

If anyone else wants something original just for them, U2U me. I'm happy to write for you guys.

I should let you in on a secret... You cannot teach poetry, and you cannot really teach art. You can teach a person to spell, and you can teach a person how different techniques can be applied with pencils, how different mediums can be applied to a canvas, but you cannot teach inspiration, and you cannot teach talent.

One either has talent, or has not. Once talent is known to exist, the only question is wether or not it is recognised and encouraged. Well... I see it, so...
