Change of Heart

No longer want,
just know to need.
Memories haunt,
guilty hearts feed.
Love tries to taunt,
by planting seeds.
So nonchalant,
sadness succeeds.

Grief will not win,
its reign will stop.
Grow thicker skin,
hesitance drops,
creates a spin,
until joy pops.
Glow deep within,
reach for the top.

Love will succeed,
runs nonchalant,
Hydrating seeds,
no need to taunt,
expands then feeds,
clears fears that haunt.
Satisfies needs,
by granting wants.

Landing on top,
light flows within,
negative pops,
swept by a spin.
Doubtful thoughts drop,
delight coats skin.
Bliss never stops,
prepare to win.

Life is a story
with an endless spin,
an action park ride,
controlled from within.
One day we fly high,
the next day fall down,
while studying rules,
a merry go round.

Fickle and dizzy
an unbalanced soul,
breaking the routine,
gaining self-control.
So many questions
await a response,
obtaining all needs,
still longing for wants.

The planet has changed,
nothing is the same,
words have new meanings,
unrelated aim.
Two steps moving forward
take one full step back,
slowly advancing,
remaining on track.

A visible light,
unfolds a strong bridge,
our soul forming wings,
our bodies the hinge.
Inhale then exhale
let go of the weight,
float calmly through life,
live what we create.
