My own brave new world,
a place where no one else
knows my heart or its' ways

My own piece of ground
that I can till, cultivate
and sustain myself for all my days

My own peace of mind,
not encumbered by the ways of others;
their shortcomings, or their impositions of my time

My own thoughts, flailing free without the cares
or struggle, no emotions to juggle
between the laugh lines and the tears

A place where
no one knows my heart,
or it's ways


Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Ah, we all, to one extent or another hide our  innermost parts of ourselves from the world at large.

A brave new world, perhaps for one with a sturdy soul...but somewhere where no one knows my heart or its ways sounds like a lonely place to me. ~L

Hi Lori Rhoden and thanks for your reply. You're also quite right. It is a "lonely place to be". I seldom write about myself and instead tend to see various characters in my mind much as a novelist might. Then I write about them in my 'poetry'. So if you gave a thought to it, this is not me in the poem. I'm merely a "Board Ghost".

Thanks again.
