Energy

A poem by Barbie Taylor, 19, EIT Tairawhiti

I have energy

It runs through me, it’s like soft silk as pure as gold

It streams in and out of my hands

My grip is never tight enough to hold it in my hands

To what energy I have is always given.

To those whom I love, my energy is always given without thought

But to whom I let myself be ruled by, it is easily stolen and it leaves the pure gold in nothing but rock and that soft silk is torn

But even this can be used

That Rock will be my strength and I can use it to keep my head up

The torn silk is now two, it is more than one

I tie two together and tie it to my rock, this is what will keep me on solid ground, it’s stopping me from wonders, their hands can now not take me into their grip

I can rest in peace and while I rest the torn silk is now pure gold and is a stream of soft silk

I am pure and strong once again knowing where I can go to if I need to rest

I go to my rock of ages and tie myself tight with two and float

Where hands can not touch me

I have energy

It runs through me, it’s like soft silk as pure as gold

It streams in and out of my hands

My grip is never tight enough to hold it in my hands

To what energy I have is always given.

To those whom I love, my energy is always given without thought

But to whom I let myself be ruled by, it is easily stolen and it leaves the pure gold in nothing but rock and that soft silk is torn

But even this can be used

That Rock will be my strength and I can use it to keep my head up

The torn silk is now two, it is more than one

I tie two together and tie it to my rock, this is what will keep me on solid ground, it’s stopping me from wonders, their hands can now not take me into their grip

I can rest in peace and while I rest the torn silk is now pure gold and is a stream of soft silk

I am pure and strong once again knowing where I can go to if I need to rest

I go to my rock of ages and tie myself tight with two and float

Where hands can not touch me
