Happy Pioneer Day, my fellow Utahns! #dailyhaiku #emilymariepoetry #emilymariemcbride
One day I will have eloquence comparable to @amandatorroni and @tylerkentwhite, but today is not that day.
Last night I was looking into the mirror when I fell into it’s hidden labyrinths. I saw myself for the first time and I began to wonder when I stopped being 15. When did I stop staring at the ceiling, listening to the same hopeless bands, convincing myself that this time love was real, and this time he would stay?
I stood there digging, excavating the pieces of my soul that had grown dusty in the days of their abandonment. I began to pull down the bricks of walls I built at 15.
I wondered when, exactly, was it that I found God. When did I decide that the freedom I owes myself was more important than the calling of his fingertips. I tried to decide the moment I realize that bones were not beauty and that his monsters didn’t have to live in me.
But most of all, I wondered what it was but I realized that in the orbits of our human existence, I was not the sun. I was a planet and you are the moon that danced around me. The moon they gave liked the isles inside of me and the moon finally shows behind my two eyes that can finally see.
