You put the lure on the hook and I bit,

Ready to be sacrificed at the altar of you,

You pulled me from crystal streams sunlight glinting and admired my scales,

Ran your knife against my tender flesh,

Pondered making me your evening meal,

But then, seeing yourself in my condition,

Released me back into the ocean,

Bloody cheeked, I swim on

NaPoWriMo Day 18: Revision

Don’t lose your confidence

Never confusing certainty with circumstance
Never distrust Providence

Allow yourself to rest and dance
Remove your ignorance

Open your eyes, devour the glance
Accumulate tolerance

Open your heart to time and chance

Patience is a must

Waiting is virtuous
Your mind, you dust

Interally reinvent combust
Body mustn’t rust

Alive with touch
Always be honest

Keep your promise

Hopefully you live

Engage and give
In God, ever believe

Higher power receive
The best, you give

Utmost forgive
Better to forgive

Holy remnants sieve

Choose the right path

Follow the map
To toil, take an oath

Work hard, promise and go
God and hope, trust both

Let unfocused become focus and propel your boat
Don’t die like a brittle moth

A shell, in the end, be, do not

God-faith helps thrive

Sustained and survive
As He makes us survive

We can trust at all times
Our belief, He does revive

Awakened we reside
He helps peace to be alive

Trust, a wellspring inside

Take efforts and await

Trust in plans great
After showing your might

Trust everything will be alright
Being happy is right

Stars shine in night sky
As joy, you can sight

Sun and stars both emit light

True efforts never die

Nothing good is wasted in time
They appeal to the Sky

Answers come from you and I
God keeps His eye

Fixed on flight
Upon those who try

So trust the current and take a dive

Good luck my dear

I wish you more joy than tears
Pursue without fear

Your dreams so dear
If hard-work is here

Enjoy future cheer
No place for tear

It is time for friends, hugs and beer

We meet again in a crowded staircase,

This is the place,

Where I meet your blazing chilled stare with a smile,

I walk the labyrinth between us that spans light years of miles,

I have seen it before, slowly, the bricks will crash,

The walls, figments and flash,

I will be victorious

and

You will be in my past.
