Some songs have no name

Some songs have no name
written October 19th, 2020

I come back to the same theme
of pain and the past
manifesting in my present.

I have tried ignoring them.
I have tried fighting them.
I have sought therapists and seers
who teach me new ways to battle,
but what I fight and avoid
just seems to get stronger.

Forgive they say.
say it was ok
tell you to go peacefully to your<b> death
</font></b>with no stain on your conscience.

I try
living with the demons and memories
the hurt and betrayal
where there should have been safety and comfort.

Will I die an lady one day
still crying and hiding?
Will I find a peace of my own?
Can origami cranes and butterflies
fill my skies?

This poem has sat in my notebook for months. I keep wanting to make it something else. The last line came from a conversation with someone about the goals of writing. I struggle with speaking these things, or erasing everything except for the last 2 lines. Erasing the first part, erases a kay part of my reality, but I don't know what the resolution will be, and so the ending feels unfinished and rushed.

Déjala correr unos días, semanas tal vez y un día cualquiera, se iluminará tu inspiración para darle nombre y finalizarla como quería tu espíritu. Saludos

Google translate says your comment in English is: "Let it run for a few days, maybe weeks and any day, your inspiration will light up to give it a name and finish it as your spirit wanted. Greetings"

Thank you. This is one of those poems that will stay with me. Maybe in the future I will find a better closing. Thanks for reading me and your comment.
