Welcome our true identity

We know ourselves
A certain way
Thinking others have better strengths
Are better organized
Or better prepared for challenges

We always wish
For a different skin
Or hair color
For a different way of seeing things
Of trusting others

Gradually, letting our own true self
Disappearing behind a manufactured identity
A self without
When we would gain a lot
Just to welcome who we are

Our best ride

When night comes
And we stay awake
Looking at the shapes
Made on our walls
By streetlights and cars headlamps

We may think life is nothing more
Than dust flying around
Corn flakes lost in a bowl
Missing its milk

We may think nothing last
And all that we do every day
Does not weight much
Than a rain of stars on earth

And yet as the day unfolds
We are searching for the seconds
That made this adventure into nothingness
A terrific ride!

Is Bréa

Wherever she goes
She is looking for them
Or O’something
She is enthralled by stories
She had not read yet
She is on the edge of her seat
When she knows a new book
Is about to find its place on the shelves
Of her favorite bookshop
She can’t wait to own it
And it’s by holding her breath
That she starts reading

Stories with rough beginnings
War, violence, poverty
Starvation, Contemplation of a world moving fast
Celtic Tiger revenge
And yet, something out of nowhere
That looks like, smells like
A tiny bit of hope
Turned into a smile
Joy at the corner of the eye

These stories are like life
Spreading its butterfly wings
Out of bitter days
You can create something better

Manic Sylph Writes... Poetry & Thoughts by Mona Soorma

Hey! It’s #IndieApril and the #PoetryMonth too!

It’s time for a special feature and I think I am going to call it Finding Poetry. I am going to find you new poetry to read. Books from Indie poets, some free poetry book links that I can find online… let’s see how it goes.

If you have self-published a poetry book and want a shout-out, here’s the place to connect with new readers. Just let me have your book link and the link to some poetry from you and I will post it here.

Welcome to my Special Feature- Finding Poetry: Showcasing poems and poetry books this Indie April, Poetry Month 2022
