I always walk a straight line

I follow the same thick path
I walk with force and take long strides
and try to never look back.
but when the record breaks
and skips and skips and skips
I can only feel like I am walking backwards
and I feel my sanity start to slip.

you're caught in the middle
a grave sight in the center of rosebushes
the last stone that finally broke due to wear
every step that echoes down the hall.

you're the beginning
but you're so close to the end
the middle cant even find you
tell me, what makes you bend?

the time laps is outright truthful
you'll trust the world before you even know your own self
you walk among the commoners
to see if you can find an empty shelf.

your emotions cannot save you
you have broken what is already gone
a step, a turn, a glance too fast
your past is already lost.

Captain M. R. Burns

You cannot break the will of my soul
with words and glances you throw
you arm yourself to puncture my skin
yet my scars are all my own

I've seen that lately
you cannot break me
you cannot mend my solid case
It's only me
I hold the key
that controls this strong device

I will not bend
you cannot break me
with my will I shall not fail these words,
you will not command me
you will not shape me
I never put the clay in your hands

I am my maker
I swim through my dreams
I am stronger than I will ever believe

with every breath and every step
I will become more durable with every gap or gash.

right now, my best friend of 14+ years is in Uganda. She is serving her mission and faith and loving every minute of it and all I want to do is hold her and cry.
I love you KP, keep calm and carry on. <3
