A collection of poetry from Pendulum – written by Kylie Harrison
.In danger I play
It may not be all it seems,
As sometimes I fall
Yet I still remember my dreams,
So I get up and I crawl.
Wondering if anyone can hear
Longing for someone to reveal my quest.
Racing heart, anxious with fear
Crying out into the darkness.
Hoping for someone to take the burden away
Maybe it is my thorn
I run and dance, in danger I play
It was placed there before I was born.
Like peas in a pod,
we clamber together.
dissociate parts flying.
like the weather,
longing for love,
a strong faith dying.
No one to blame
People react to a positive attitude
There is no one to blame.
The key to your prison is waiting for you
As you discover we are the same.
I am wearing a white dress,
shimmering with jewels.
I stand near a lake,
Admiring the waterfalls.
I am safe in this garden.
I want to stay.
It is a precious secret refuge,
refreshed from the scars of yesterday.
Paradise in Cairns
Within clear sands and pocket-sized huts
There is murky water and hidden crocs.
A harvest of concealed coconuts
Still life beneath forgotten rocks.
Palm trees sway in the breeze,
Over mossy rocks a waterfall cascades.
I long to stay, I never want to leave
Within this beauty, a problem fades.
Hope will get you through
How can you trust again,
When it feels like everyone is against you?
Some will beat their wounded
Yet that’s not the worst they will do.
Concentrate on what is good,
Focus on things that are true.
Believe in yourself and find hope,
Your friends will get you through.
