Alive

A prayer wafts up
silently
amid the noise of day
thoughts louder than words
crash heavily

help

the flow of life
at times
opressive
at times
making my feet take off dancing
a life of their own
joy flowing down to my toes

the mixture bittersweet
and lovely

That's exactly how I feel! You seem to have a knack for expressing what I just can't. Thanks Hil, have a great day! :)

Yes, that's life, ups and downs, like a rollercoaster. You did express it beautifully! All the best with the report cards!
