“Mystical Flowers” by Aditya Ikranegara

 

 

STEP-BY-STEP


Trying to look as though
I’m in complete control,
attempting to find my way
across this stage of life
one
step
at
a
time,
I find myself dancing
with steps quite unsure,
dancing lightly upon the edge
of each and every day,
as I try so very hard
to find that balance
I’ve always sought,
upon that narrow
and fine line
that marks my journey
along the edge of life
as I try to find my way.


And as I pirouette
and twirl
and dance upon the stage,
trying so hard
to maintain some sense
of balance and control
and to look like I know
what I’m doing
at each turn,
waves of uncertainty,
unease
and unrest,
return to haunt
my heart and my soul,
as emotions I thought
I had left  in the past
come flooding over me
and my tentative steps,
still not as sure of myself
as I’d so very much
like to be.

  6. :love: Hi, my darling Ms Barbara!!!! How are you? I have been away for a long, long time. Just checked on myspace today and went into total shock!!! It’s Gone. I couldn’t even log on. All my work from 06 is gone, I guess. Thank God I have alot of it here. Where is everyone? All on facebook? If you hear from any of the old gang there, tell them to contact me here. I’ll try to be around more. Am very busy with a whole nuther life and haven’t been writing. At all. Can you believe that??? Love ya, Voo :-D

    YAY!!! Vooo!!!!! So very sad about MySpace. You should be able to log in, though, with your regular username and password. I keep checking over there to see if there has been any news about the blogs. Though I’ve saved them all in one form or another, I would have wanted to copy the “safe mode” pages of my “new” profile as I had done for my original profile. I’m hoping that the blogs will at least temporarily be made available. I haven’t been posting much at all anywhere, but participating in CPC here on Friendburst and Inspiration Nook and resurrected my Blogger Blog where I occasionally post and also Apollo Blessed where I’ve joined a few of the groups and posted a few pieces. But yes, Facebook which I have so avoided all this time, my Blogophilia pieces are now posted there in My Notes along with a few other posts since the MySpace self-destruct. I really hadn’t posted much of anything there for the entire year before all of this. Great to see you here and I look forward to seeing you more here. I’m sure that once you begin writing again it will all be brilliant! Even our pens need a break every so often. (((HUGS))) and :love: :love: :love:
