No More


No More
Kay Rice
June 14, 2013

Wake up, rise, face a new day,
Body aching, growing in new ways.
Get up, crawl, if it’s all I can do,
Find the path, traveled by few.
Pain is just a temporary state,
Victory is an addicting taste.

Hold on tight, there is no easy path,
Each step, each move, a harder task.
Welcome the quiet before the storm hits,
There is no option, I refuse to quit.
No time to think, just react and fight,
Always see, what is just out of sight.

Jump start my heart from its long rest,
Hit the ground running, beating my best.
I refuse to be beaten by the pain inside,
I refuse to give up and be buried alive.
There is no more time to waste on tears,
There is no option, but to face my fears.

No more sleep walking,
No more useless talking,
No more tears,
No more fears,
No more endless nightmares,
No more waiting for what is fair.




I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.
