Taking Strides

Black hidden deep within a forest
A focal point leading outward
Strides that repeat friction brings heat
A heart filled with hope inspires the beat
Atmosphere with hoofs intense
Trampling over the reasons to avoid
Existence stark to compare
Through the traffic of daily noise
Minds that race to the pace
Shredding through the trees
Movement over obstacles
Left or right into the mist
Where the darkness may be kept
Courage to trample branches with no fear
To break clear of the path set in the way
As night does fall a horse ran away
Where will it be when the forest becomes day?

Profile photo of Kristina Anne-Paula Whitmore
I am a single twenty-seven year old that finally is finding a route towards insightful and healthy expression. I have always loved nature and animals as well as observing the beauty of the stars at night. Some things that I love are singing and expressing my personality. I am just a woman who has always enjoyed being imaginative with literature. Which is why I love writing and dream to graduate from college one day. What inspires me are instant moments in nature that spark imagery within my mind. I have just recently begun trusting to open up in a written form about my past after much inward reflection and outward neglection. It has taken time to care enough about my own thought processes and writing feelings down again. I am thankful I am finding a wonderful way of reminding myself that I am capable of artistic value even though I have had confidence issues. Thanks for taking the time to read about me.

Taking Off short poem

Outraged film and dirt life. The descent was complete. A shadow under the moon walks past the lake, comes out of the body. Every dream leaves an imprint on the glass. Will never drink the moonlight again. The blank surrender

Taking On

Taking On short poem

It was a fast against truth, in support of unbidden body which took the history lesson. A star is born out of midnight accident. Darkness deems dark in siege of self-restraint. An embattled self seeks a counting. The money speaks

Taking Flight

Taking Flight long poem

When the weight of her everyday became too much her knees buckled and she fell towards the floor. The pain became so intense it seared her from the inside out and she begged for relief. The pain swept down her

Taking A Chance

Taking A Chance short poem

You have to roll a six, With four dices on the board. The odds are not in your favor, Playing a big game of chance. Critics are saying it’s impossible, But you still play in the tournament. Self-discipline increases the
