The Dawning

The Dawning 
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

A new day is dawning With new realizations
Like a morning mist at sunrise I am seeing revelations 
Though truth is made clear The path is still uncertain
There are yet many questions Round this cursed iron curtain
The beauty of truth Can be so hard to follow
When you've built your foundation On ground that is hollow
But the grandeur of life Is that the will can find a way
Where once there was a ceiling Now stars will obey
 My heart has been aching To be truly free
Of all of these teachings Which crucify me
To follow my instinct And the wisdom you gave
To take the initiative For once to be brave
To take what I've learned To highest of heights
To walk with a purpose And focus my sights
For all I've been given Is all that I need
Help me know what that is How to grow and succeed

Winter In The Soul

Winter In The Soul

As winter creeps in Like a thief in the night
Wrapping it’s chill Around all in sight

Putting nature to sleep One snowfall at a time
Rippling waters stilled Sleeping beauties in restful prime

And little by little Each in it's own turn
My thoughts will then settle As I attempt to discern

Where destiny lies Is far off from me
 Yet still I will try To plan and to see

I know not where I'm going Nor the path I am on
Only that it seems frozen As if time were gone

In the clouds

Ever Changing Beauty In The Skies
Reflecting Light From The Sun's Bright Eyes
Holding Me Captive In Far Away Dreams
Of Perching Atop In Pillowy Beams
 Riding Along On The Wind's Icy Trail
Looking Down Upon All Of The Strong And The Frail
Exploring The Countries Both Near And Far
Yet Close Enough To Heaven To Shake Hands With Morning Star

In God and In You

Ah the dynamic relationship of siblings.  I know it isn't prevalent in all sibling relationships but in my family, the blood runs thick whether we see each other often or not.  Still though, no matter how much we try to protect each other and fight for each other, there comes a time (several times in fact) when we must let them figure it out on their own; when you have to just shut up and let them walk right back into the pile of crap they just walked out of.  The time comes when they just have to figure it out themselves.  Perhaps you've had friendships that have ended or even became stronger because of this same kind of experience?  I know I have.  While there are many moments when advice can be given and even received and taken, there are many more where they just have to try it themselves for whatever the reason - or do the stupid thing yet again.  This is about that realization and about the frustration behind it as well as the cure.  Sometimes you just gotta let go and pray like hell that they make it out reasonably unscathed but smarter and wiser in the end. 

"In God and In You"

I want to write you a letter
I want to sing you a song
But I think I know better
You'll take what I say wrong

You'll throw up your defenses
And tell me you can't be helped
I'll try to make you see sense
While you drink and I yell

But for once I think I really see
You alone must take your victory
And though I'll pray like hell
As only a sister can so well
Hope against hope that God brings you through
I gotta have faith in God and in you

I want to scream and curse
The very ground she walks on
And then kick you just as hard
Till you see the obvious con

Cause you know I love you
With the fiercest loyalty
You know your sister's love
It's protective quality

I know you my brother
You're better than this
You've got the potential
Don't give it death's kiss
