Repair

I can not find a place to grow,
my light has dimmed no longer glows.
I do not fit in anywhere,
my thoughts are mine no room to share.
I keep hitting a concrete wall,
my victories become my fall.
I do not know what will come next,
my mind wonders if I was hexed.

My heart does not believe it’s hexed,
I envision what I want next.
My strength increases after falls,
I know I can climb any wall.
My purest joy comes when I share,
I now feel welcomed anywhere.
My heart and soul carry a glow,
I nurture it and watch it grow.

Existence

As the world spins
does it shed sins?
Making wrongs right
all day and night?
Are problems solved
quickly absolved?
Do winds bring hope?
enough to cope?

Do all our fears,
and guilty tears,
grab hold and steer,
as gloom appears?
Do we throw hooks,
behave like rooks,
in little nooks,
exchanging looks?

Did we invent
outer intent?
A force to blame
for inner shame?
If we decide
to look inside,
what will we find
along with pride?

A tiny light,
twinkles at sight,
a brilliant force,
connecting source.
A silent bell
we know too well,
guides and compels,
within our cells.

Risk

Deck full of questions,
answers are shuffled and stacked,
perceptions soon dealt.

Wishes

Never hold a wish too tight,
let it flow to reach new heights.
If it flies too far from sight,
precise timing was not right.

Keep your goals away from ears,
do not share till it is here,
to prevent another’s fears,
from applauding your failed tears.

Allow wants to have a say,
visualize them on most days,
not too much or they may sway,
be consistent so they stay.

Let hopes happen easily,
do not focus eagerly,
if your heart feels peacefully,
they will appear serenely.

It is fine to set dreams free,
let them fly within the breeze,
like the waves out in the sea,
they return if meant to be.

Receive and Own

Whimsical raindrops,
fall upon her head,
ignite dreams that pop,
feed thoughts that were dead.

Takes hold of her soul,
melts the hardened mold.
Sheds light on the old,
exceeds with control.

Opens mind apart,
so she can receive.
Deciphering hearts,
are hard to deceive.

Quenches dire thirst,
from cold fears and worries.
Warm amber lights burst,
to create glories.

Subconscious is free,
shadows stand in place.
Angelic song keys,
fill abyss with grace.

Spirit protected,
with pure divine love.
Interconnected,
on land and above.

Excursion

Life is a fast horse,
fate crackles the whip,
it gallops the course,
with breezes from source,
steers her aimless ship,
powers reinforce.

Close worn tired eyes,
moisten parched dried lips,
releases deep sighs,
quenched thirst, so dreams fly,
unfasten tight grip,
heart flutters so high.

Enjoy this quick ride,
no need to steer it,
soul silently guides,
fortitude provides,
clear path is now lit,
options open wide.

Inner passions write,
an infinite tale,
that gleams with delight.
tomorrow shines bright.
while raising the sail,
feel solid and right.
