Inspirational poetry: Surreal





In a realm of a surreal reality,
she steps out on uncharted territory.

Her eyes, somewhat blind
to the visions before her,
but her spirit is awakened,
to the visions
instilled in her.

Her heart, merely beating
to life’s everyday tunes,
but open,
to untraveled roads ahead.

There was a photo that would appear in her mind,
but for years, it was blank,
because her passion had been blind.

Something inside had unraveled,
And now a surge had come to tide.

The winds were now more outspoken,
and the waters, crashing with each new breath.

The air around, began to move and dance
with the forces at work.

Her spirit is awakened to the visions
instilled in her.

In a realm of surreal reality,
she steps out on uncharted territory.

Her soul began to move
as a new pattern of the sun began.
The tide has changed.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.” Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls…. Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International. She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein. Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“ During other parts of her free time, she enjoys taking photos and creating art. Her “day-jobs” include working as a church administrative aide and reporting for a local newspaper.
