Will

Doing what she must
as ways to survive.
Smacking her own face
just to feel alive.


Numbed to all the pain,
seasoned to betrayal.
Holding her weak heart,
knowing she will fail.


Crying without tears,
she screams, no one hears,
cover her own ears,
to shelter her fears.


Falling to the ground,
with no one around,
Finds strength to stand proud,
fixes her tilted crown.


Exhales all the hell,
she had to endure,
then takes a full breath
to feel reassured.


Stands on her two feet,
her head in the air,
as her inner force,
tempts her to now dare.


Knowing deep inside
her aim can build towers.
Cradles brighter views,
embracing her power.

Cool

Patience is a gift,
made for respect, not abuse.
Test with great caution.

Changes

It starts from inside,
I am often told,
try hard to control
the space that you hold
.

Dig deep from inside,
to release all cares,
becoming aware
of everything there
.

Change happens inside,
perceptions transform,
cradle all ice storms,
turn cold into warm
.

Balance from inside,
removing extremes,
extracting old scenes,
then sewing the seams
.

Feel free from inside,
let all the bad go,
your pure smile will glow
all joys will then grow
.

Find strength deep inside,
grab hold of pure light,
all day and all night
it always shines bright
.

Spirits

A shot of hope to mask all fears
A pint of faith to capture tears
Light appears
Troubles clear
Painful years
Disappear


A cup of bliss eases the shakes
A glass of charm is all it takes
Fix mistakes
Balance quakes
Soothing lakes
Eases aches


A flask of pride to be kept strong
A flute of wisdom corrects wrongs
Joyful songs
Sing along
Fateful prong
All belong


A bottle of peace helps trauma heal
A crate of love so all can feel
Ego peels
Light reveals
Bright appeal
Shine for real

Form

Most people crave
positive flows,
so hard to give

what goes unknown.
So hard to see

when never shown,
cradle your heart

until it glows.

When negative

is all you see,
it hides all hopes

with lock and key.
One must dig deep

to set it free,
emotion waves

flow like the sea.

Break all restraints

along with chains,
do not let fears

provide constraints.
Found inner strength

will dictate gains,
watch as all goals

pour down like rain.

Create your own

positive vibe,
great energy

hard to describe.
Once it arrives

keep and subscribe,
when possible

share and prescribe.

Delve

Complete acceptance is
a tough pill to swallow,
but once it is taken
it helps dissolve sorrows.


To truly surrender
is a difficult deed,
letting go of control
watering planted seeds.


A secured self-esteem
is a slippery slope,
to balance the ego
provides inner hope.

The fruits from all labor
presents life with awards,
Self-work and improvements
offer greater rewards.


Outer viewed projections,
emerge from deep within.
Reflected perceived views,
can shed light on false wins.

Looking into the mind
could empower all dreams,
acknowledge the power
let it flow like a stream
.

Gift

Pretty pebble
thrown in the air,
left all alone
nobody cared.
Carried powers
way deep inside.
Unseen by all
but the wise eye
.

Young girl in search
for some control,
all by herself
taking a stroll.
Aims to fulfill,
numbed voided spots,
that broke apart
within her heart.


Finds slightest shine,
within a rock,
for the first time
feeling a spark.
Keeping it safe
deep in her pocket,
the perfect link,
for her prized locket.


Instantly clears,
all of her fears.
All sadness steers,
when it is near.
Every old tear,
transform to cheers.
Glad it appeared,
she holds it dear.


Pretty pebble,
felt loved at last.
Never ignored,
like in the past.
All special gifts
can now be shared,
emitting love,
deleting despair
.

Finding her way,
warmed by sun rays.
Embracing days,
from where she lays.
Feeling amazed,
empathy raised.
Rewards that pay
are vowed to stay.


Graceful pebble.
Secure young girl.
Gifts to this world,
like a fine pearl
.
Connected fast
attached they curled.
Enjoyed their dance
united twirl.

Lagrima

A single tear
wanders a path,
sorrows get cleared
releasing bath
.

Slowly strolling,
down her left cheek.,
her mind ponders
answers she seeks
.

The lonely tear
reaches her chin,
captures her fears
staining her skin
.

It takes a bow

then jumps and skips,
flying straight down
decides to dip
.

Her answers come,
one at a time.
Her heart then hums
to inner chime
s.

One tear runs dry,
at last, released,
without a cry
instantly eased
.

Pursue

A ragged house, high on a cliff,
loose wooden frame, support adrift.
Doe-eyed young girl, innocent soul,
filled with stories, yet to be told.
Active childhood, playing at home,
nutrition scarce filled up with foam.
Bullied baby with many scars,
obtained visions took her quite far.
Saving earnings, for a new life,
releasing her from all past strife.


An unknown country filled with big dreams,
fluorescent lights drowned out extremes.
Vigorous heart, beats in her chest,
always at work, no time for rest.
Still, a bright smile shines on her face,
brimming with hues of natural grace.
Every downfall brings a new chance,
turning sorrows into a dance.
Sunlight appears with gifts of luck,
liberty bells of freedom struck.

A serene breeze inflates her lungs,
with homemade sweets coating her tongue.
Winning ticket held at her side,
future visions expand so wide.
Unbalanced house is fixed at last,
mending the holes from a dim past.
Greeting with joy each sparkling day,
while healing lives in distinct ways.
Positive vibes, the greatest gift,
a humble soul will grow and lift.
