Mandi June

Rookie - 0 Points (10-17-81 / Fort Worth, Texas)


Drawing nigh, the time of choice inside my fiery soul
Digs deeper. All the while, lacking balance takes its toll.
The stone and mortar build a base from cold and empty ground
Erect, at length, the structure that has now come tumbling down.
The wonder then, that plagues my mind is 'Why? What did it lack? '
And 'How much effort will it take; these bricks, again, to stack? '
The trust and hope and faith, and all these things that once were known
They have been tested, yes, but this to you must not be shown.
Will ever, in security my life be fully yours?
Eternal relics of my heart remind me, 'Love endures.'
