Poetry by Sarah, Shadorma

Yield


Confusion.
Saturated mind
unable
to sort through;
prioritise challenges.
Moonstruck by my fears.

Day by day,
with ragtag mounting,
I feel I
am drowning.
The sun is shimmering still
– but in me, no more.

Do I sail
raging seas, or yield?
A conflict –
Desperate
wanderlust away from self?
Or stay. Fight the fight?

Poetry by Sarah, Shadorma

Grateful

Oh what bliss!
A lakeside escape.
Girls’ weekend –
sharing love,
laughter and fun! I’m grateful
for these friends of mine.
