DRAGON HEARTS & DANDELION FUZZ

Madalyn Beck invites you to peer into yourself while delving into her latest collection of poetry. Her poems are a fantastical introspection, inviting you to remember who you were and telling you who you could yet be. Her beautifully lyrical prose glimpses beyond the harsh truth of everyday life and reminds us that the world isn’t just how we see it; it’s what we make it. Life is more than survival; it’s a human experience that often seems otherworldly until we step beyond the boundaries set by convention and realize that we are each greater than the sum of our trials.

May the words inside help find your own wings and give you the courage to fly. 


POETIC EMBERS

Within the pages of this wonderful collection, Poetic Embers by Madalyn Beck, you will find a heartbeat. A poetic heart beating to the rhythm of life and all that comes with it. The ups and downs of emotions will converge as the lines reach out and grab you, having their way with you, teasing you and well, providing a smooth surface that you will reflect upon. The poems you will read in Poetic Embers will stir old memories, bring light to new experiences and walk with you as a new day begins…and if you’re not careful, the heartbeat you hear when lost among these fabulous thoughts, ideas and collected phrases, might just be your own.

  • Sometimes I am loyal to a fault. Sometimes I forget that to be true to others, I must first be true to myself. And for a time, I lost sight of who I was because it was no longer an option to me. I was broken down and barely surviving day to day. I dreamed of movement most of all, but I could no longer move the way I used to. That person I was had been taken away, and I remained loyal to friends because there was nothing else left of me. Nothing felt right. Not even my own flesh and bones. And for so long I didn't believe I would ever find a home here again. The person in the reflection was not the person I wanted. So I stayed blindly loyal to those I loved believing they would keep me alive a little longer. But things gradually began to change. I watched them destroy and did little to hault there wicked ways because I was already a pile of rubble. What could I do against people so vile? 
But there was foundation long forgotten. There was solid ground underneath the destruction. And when their red shown brightly against my dark sky, I knew another hit was coming and that I might not survive. But I traced this rock of faith that did not break. I looked in the mirror to see a girl with a familiar face then dressed myself in stone, the shards leftover of the girl I was, and I stood firm in what I believed was good and right and just... I broke the bonds of friendship to save the girl who knew right from wrong.

  • Sometimes you have to take care of yourself first. Sometimes people in your life won't be accepting of your needs. Let them go. If they aren't understanding during those difficult times, they didn't really care before.

  • For a long te I believed I was stuck. I never thought I would escape the hold my depression had over me, and to be honest, some days still pull me down hard. But I wrote this piece as a reminder to myself.

Every day is bright with opportunity. Every day is a chance to react differently. Every day is a sunrise of forgiveness and fresh starts.

"Start over, my darling. Be brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to."

I wrote this piece for me. I shared this piece for you.

Why wait for January to start over? ⁣⁠
Why not now? In this moment? ⁣⁠

‘Start over, my darling. Be brave enough to find the life you want and courageous enough to chase it. Then start over and love yourself the way you were always meant to be.’⁣⁠

I stumbled upon these words by @madalynbeck and decided they are just as applicable to December as to January. As to March or to April or to whenever…⁣⁠
⁣⁠
~⁣⁠
⁣⁠
So, here’s to starting over. Every moment you’d like. I’ll drink a glühwein to that!⁣⁠
⁣⁠
~⁣⁠
⁣⁠
There’s one month left to live this decade. Don’t make it an antechamber for January. ⁣⁠
Live life like you mean it. Starting today.⁣⁠

  • There is something to be said about those who know to hold their tongue when their chest is hot with anger. There is wisdom in the silence, for a bitter heart will only speak harsh words.
