Wind Compass

When will the wind change? What is the mind of my compass?
I've walked endless miles and believed for centuries
Where is it I am supposed to be?
Smoldering desires ashed over time
Became unsure to really know who I am and what's mine.
The evil queen depended on a mirror for wishing undefeat.
A reflection of self-aflicted horror twinkles no hope, and implanted deceit.
Has the compass reached that destination?
Should the poison spat from the atters tongue
Transition to my youth fountain.
From the cursed seed
The wind changed time in need for one inevitabally pointed to freed.

About this poem

Born and raised in the pine tree state. I have floated to unknown places in a past time by no choice. I often wondered what would happen if I took a different turn. As it turns out, I was brought back home but with different perspectives and new hopes. I can hope and thank the wind. It was a compass chosen.

Alisha Merritt Williams

Previously divorced and now happily married to my life partner. I am now a step-mother of 3 at 32 years old. Born and raised in, Maine, mostly small towns with little population. I enjoy the quiet. I enjoy times with friends and family but, currently work 2 jobs. I have lived in other states working odd-end jobs to stay afloat and am now a successful vital person in the medical and psychiatric field. I am not wealthy in the sense of a defining green color, but I am one of the richest individuals in the world because I have a wife and kids to come home too who love me unconditionally. I reflect and write about anything in many genres. Enjoy and don't judge, like I would do for you. more…
