Now Playing Tracks

Just after my mother died, I grabbed hold of my Divergence like it was a hand outstretched to save me. I needed that word to tell me who I was when everything else was coming apart around me. But now I’m wondering if I need it anymore, if we ever really need these words, “Dauntless,” “Erudite,” “Divergent,” “Allegiant,” or if we can just be friends or lovers or siblings, defined instead by the choices we make and the love and loyalty that binds us.
Allegiant, Veronica Roth

Poetry Challenge: Week 3

iii. rubble

baby you’re a wrecking ball
is what some people sing
the opposite of impregnable
castles open for conquering

they leave their souls out in the rain
get preyed upon by thieves
guarding your heart is tough to do
when you wear it on your sleeve

others never take a risk
their walls grow thick with age
protection spells and fortress moats
an ever-shrinking cage

they know the danger and the fear
of a moth being drawn to light
they see those little wings approach
get zapped and lose their flight

it’s true that only fools rush in
and safe permutations are wiser
but when it comes to love and life
worse still to be a miser

better to try with all you’ve got
and love like it’s your duty
for we get to choose who ruins us
and therein lies the beauty

P.S. Rand’s poem here.

another good week of learning from His word.
finished Esther and 1 Peter
memorized Isaiah 53:5 (I think :P): But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed.
when I read 1 Peter 5 and saw the words “chief Shepherd” my first thought was of Grey’s. Whoops!
