Friday, June 4

a narrow space


You know those seasons in life where you just feel overwhelmed all the time by everything, and it seems like everything that could possibly be posing any trial, is? When you are kind of pushed to your limits?  I don't think I'm in one of those.  Actually I definitely know so, because I've been there and know the difference. It's quite a big difference.  But lately I've been battling some old lies-- things that haven't bothered me in a long time. And there's a lot on my mind. It's nothing severe.. if anything it's just kind of annoying, you know?

This next little piece is a sonnet I wrote  in the midst of one of those difficult seasons. I think I have posted it up here before, when I first wrote it, but this time around it means something else entirely.  It is kind of a hopeful piece to me; I can see the difference from then and now, and know that I've grown and learned and overcome, and can do so again.

This season's heavy, I know; I know.
Backbones breaking beneath the strain.
Thinks you, 'save that amendful tone.'
From happy composure thy do refrain.

These portions with daggers-- they lacerate.
Clawing, digging, pulling delicate parts
of your soul; there looks no end in sight
Then bottom-rocks you hit, and clouds part

Not far, nor wide; a narrow space
Forth light illumining thy darkest corner
Gazing through is love's true face
And sudden the storm turns far calmer

He is the one Constant on whom to depend.
This season is long, but will come to an end.

This was totally not meant to be a downer, especially on this wonderful friday. Despite how I made it come across, I really am doing well, just have a bunch to think about.  Today, though, was a good day. I hope yours has been, too. 

Thank goodness for the weekend! What are your fun weekend plans?

  3. Kalie, you are amazing, you made my day. This is gorgeous and it utterly captures my mood today. It doesn't have to be uplifting to make you feel better, sometimes words that echo how you feel are equally as heartwarming.Familiarity maybe?

    I love this especially:
    Not far, nor wide; a narrow space
    Forth light illumining thy darkest corner
    Gazing through is love's true face
    And sudden the storm turns far calmer

    You are so gifted, i want more please! x

  11. You certainly have a talent for writing! And I didn't get a downer vibe from this at all. I do know how you feel though. When I start getting annoyed by past regrets etc, I simply tell myself there's nothing to be done about it now!
