They Say A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words...

Today, I'm just giving you pictures I've taken in the past couple months (which I may still use in future posts).  There is just too much to do and too little time to put all the thoughts running around in my head nicely into poetry LOL.  So I hope you enjoy these in the absence of words...

(:  Have a great weekend everyone!!  :)

The Dancing Game

"The Dancing Game"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

Taking steps forward, back and to the side
Dancing, escaping from the label's backside
I've tried on the hats, looked both short and quite tall
But who can I be if I'm no one at all

I picked up the crowns and set them back down
Built up new castles and sewn up new gowns
Yet still I am no one since I choose no profession
I'm topsey and turvey like a nervous confession 

Delighting the game as I skirt to and fro
Dodging and diving in the winds and the glow
But soon I am tired with no place to stay
I want to lie down but then couldn't get away

So here in the shadow is where I shall hide
Until I can settle, until I decide
Who will I be, which label accept I
My future it hinges on the wisdom I fly

Escaping Definition

"Escaping Definition"
By: Adrielle R. Bollin

Defined as loyal, wise and true
Defined as innocent and un-skewed
Defined as fragile and easily broken
Which felt like unrelatable, unspoken
Defined as structured and obedient
As delightful like a chef's key ingredient
Defined as naive with no knowledge of real pain
Like I was unfeeling, inexperienced and  plain
 My heart was torn between the knowns and unknowns
The beauty of safety and the adventure of danger zones
I had to see for myself so I could say I'd been there
I needed to break away, to fly on my own fare
So I broke the rules and dirtied my mouth
Proved to myself I could go north or south
Split myself into pieces so as not to be defined
Choosing everything and nothing like wind in the mind
Until one day I found there no longer was a road
I had learned so much but felt lost and so alone
Aimless and weary, bitter and perplexed
I went a new way, risking whatever came next
Defying definition yet wanting to be known
I explored the deserts and mountains of stone
Spoke with the scavengers, the fliers and sages
Slipping from name to name always turning pages

Gonna go a new way
Cause today's a new day
And I feel a new sway
Reaching down to my legs

And I think I might skip
And double triple my trip
Because it just feels that good
To hear the way that I should

You know you bring me around
With just the slightest of sound
The way you love me's profound
Your heart for me it breaks ground

And you saved my soul
Though it was looking like coal
You took me under your wing
Now together we swing

Surely only you know
How to the ends I will go
Your sacrifice it did show
How much about me you know

I want to thank you in kind
For giving me this new mind
And this bright sunny sky
That money just couldn't buy
