A jaded heart,
holds endless fears,
breaks dreams apart,
swallows scared tears

A weary mind,
could hardly trust,
great doubts assigned,
dreams turn to rust.

A worn out view,
shackles pure faith,
days become blue,
smudged thoughts debate.

A clear outlook,
may change a life,
removes large hooks,
that carry strife.

A change of pace,
positive comes,
concerns erase,
confidence drums.

A new insight,
enhances scope,
carries bright light,
offers real hope.

Crack the solid door,
so eyes can explore,
a little bit more,
of realities core.

A peek into life,
complex to describe,
a perfect divine,
intricate design.

Abyss is not there,
yet flows through the air,
a mystical flare,
forever so rare.

Cascades of bright sparks
that glow in the dark,
create a bold mark,
endless work of art.

Shifts views that exhale,
spirits taking sail,
no soul falls or fails,
pure peace is inhaled.

Clear thoughts can then form,
what life will perform,
eases every storm,
true nature feels warm.

Inner Journey

At times he closes both his eyes
holds his breath in, so thoughts can fly,
tries hard to dominate his mind,
but memories linger behind.

In crowds, but always feels alone,
dubious when kind acts are shown.
Expects sincere hearts to be blown,
loud inner doubts is all he knows.

Decisions lead to great regret,
throws his hands up, tries to forget.
Each endless day always resets,
brightens the view as life offsets.

Grasps inner strength so turmoil goes,
inhales pure peace, feel as it flows.
He swallows time, to take life slow,
appreciation swiftly grows.

Past lessons guide and pave the way,
his heart beats to words wise chants say.
He now sees life as a grand play,
savors moments so visions stay.

Holds everyday, lets go each night,
stays positive, expands insight.
Searches within to find warm light,
shares it with all so joys shine bright.
