Reclaiming Innocence

Concealed, a lustrous lily blooms
Deep in your attic secretly
And guards the innocence you lost
While hibernating patiently
Until a day when you can see
That what was lost can be reclaimed
And even faith that was destroyed
Can plant new seeds with wilted shame.

  3. The last 3 lines gave me chills because you wrote it so simply yet it was so much more. AmazingπŸ‘ŒπŸŒΈ

    2. I have to agree – the last three lines really hit me. The words are amazing and so meaningful!

  4. 😍😍😍😍 Fantastic!!!

    1. This is a difficult piece for me to say I’m happy you could relate to, but I’m glad you could find some meaning in the words offered.

      1. It spoke to me for reasons probably a bit different than why you wrote it. It spoke to me in a way freeing yourself, transformation, renewal, and those type of characteristics and feelings can change your life. The secret for me was removing the inner denial mask that I wore in order to truly work on me and my issues.

        1. Renewal and transformation are at the essence of this poem, so I am glad you could relate in terms of the overarching message. It is not easy to strip oneself of denial, and I admire the strength and courage it took you to do so. I have no doubt that you have grown tremendously in wisdom and spirit.

          1. 😊😊😊 Thank you. Also, thank you for allowing me to look deep within myself with this beautifully constructed poem.

            1. My words are only a reflection of your beautiful soul.

  10. Hi Cubby, I must commend your creativity and the evergreen words you bring up each time you publish on your blog. You made my 2018 incredible and I always look forward to your next publications. In the same light, I have received a good number of likes from you on my blogs as well. It really gladdens my heart each time I notice your likes and comments.
    More importantly, I have a forthcoming publication titled β€˜Voices’ and I am in need of contributing poets on this one. I am hoping you will be interested in contributing to this effort. β€˜Voices’ as titled is meant to discuss about the different visage of love – sweet love and sour love. In this publication, each contributing poets will come up with two poems; one perfect love story and the other, a sad love story.
    I was studying at your blog and I discover you have done so much on this subject matter, if given the permission I will go ahead to pick from the poems on your blog. I am hoping to have (15) fifteen contributing poets; among these poets are: Robert Okaji, Ragazza Triste, Frank Solanki, Luna, Specsladeyes, Baffy Basics, Vinz, Shefali among others. Your contribution and support will be well acknowledged and preached.
    Thanks for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.

    1. Hello Victor,

I don’t know if I have written anything that really fits the categories, but if you can find something on my blog, please let me know as I am curious what they would be.

      I hope you keep blogging and writing more beautiful poetry to share with others.

      Warm regards,

      Sonya Annita Song (aka Cubby)
