Ishaisms, Poetry

Dilemma

We’ve all got our reasons to stay in hell
struggling to see past the iron bars we create
to chain the spirit; cursed under our own spell,
victims of a farce, victims of a fate…

Dilemma must give way not to doubt but decisions…
What you are is what you choose.
There’s a heaven that awaits, there is salvation!
The show goes on and so must you…

To break free seems like a daunting mission
The waters of freedom entice, but what if we sink?
A numb spirit, to stay, runs out of reasons,
A voyage ahead, a tempest within…

The ocean may be limitless but so are you –
to dive in is an opportunity, not a mere temptation!
Take that leap of faith, into the unknown blue –
great treasures are found in the bottom of the ocean!

  1. “To break free seems like a daunting mission
    The waters of freedom entice, but what if we sink?”
    These lines correctly captures the emotions before any new ventures into the unknown – a touch of fear, anxiety, excitement – all rolled into one.

  2. And great treasures are found in ….. binge reading Ishaisms on a cold Canadian night. I recall that time you did me a similar honour, all those months ago. Before life grabbed us like ….. chainmail gloves on the horns of a frenzied bull! Lucky my bull is sleeping tonight so I have time for chocolate nibbles and your oh so, epic writing! ❤
