A Giving Soul

Thanks for giving sound advice,
which I ignored, then paid the price.
Thanks for always being nice,
to see past lies, my mind devised.

My faulty ways, you overlooked,
you gave pure love, as I threw hooks.
Your pure affection left me shook,
you dusted off, the plots I cooked.

Thanks for opening my eyes,
holding my hand, easing my cries.
Thanks for giving without ties,
while pushing me, so I could fly.

Intentions that I once mistook,
are lessons that now write my book.
Connections built between two rooks,
in grateful hearts, create a nook.

Search

Why does time fly by so fast?
So bad days can swiftly pass.
Tomorrow can bring a blast,
quickly clearing all contrast.

Why does silence sound so loud?
Lingered noises hang around.
Echoes float til they are drowned,
granting peace space to surround.

Why does loneliness feel bad?
We think alone life is sad.
Self fulfillment in our hands,
inner love can make hearts glad.

Why does truth live behind eyes?
Bodies serve as a disguise.
Infinite soul flows up high,
without flesh spirit will fly.

Confident

Looking for answers.
Searching through life for a clue.
Inwardly knowing.

A New World

Take me away, beam me up high,
twinkling showers circle the skies.
Off to a place, where nothing dies,
stars dance around, spin and baptize.

Take me somewhere, where I come first,
away from here, quench this dry thirst.
Plan an escape from what feels cursed,
bring with you faith, so hopes can burst.

Take me inside, lend me your eye,
give me a life, teach me to fly.
Disperse my tears, inhale my sighs,
clear up my pain, help me survive.
