Fated Sail

I crank the anchor,
watch as it lifts.
I sail my boat
then let it drift.
I push my view
making them shift.
I work quite hard
to make life swift.

Winds rock my boat
from here to there.
I’m lost at sea
but do not care.
Life shakes me up
and feels unfair.
Absent from life
yet still aware.

I grab the steer,
balanced at once.
I trim the sail,
tying the knots.
I harmonize
my offbeat heart.
I convince fate
to change the plot.

Waves carry us
to where we land.
Our keel and feet
enjoy the sand.
Our life is sweet
from where we stand.
Infinity
at destiny’s hand.

Clears

What goes up
must come down,
even clowns
can own frowns,
even snakes
shed their skin,
letting go
all old sins.

Black and white
can shade grays,
opposites
fun at play,
skip around
sun and rain,
adding ease
to all pain.

Find True Self
in your eyes,
releasing
your disguise,
look beyond
what is shown,
opaque paths
start to glow.

Mope or fly,
laugh and cry.
This whole world
is your ride.
Feed the good
just decide,
to hold light
by your side.

Suddenly

Without a clue
out of the blue,
the old me died
reborn all new.
All past mistakes
proved to be true,
knowledge was earned
from what I knew.

Out of the blue
everything changed
the life I lived
was rearranged.
All thoughts I had
were interchanged,
my preferences
were seen as strange.

Without a clue
to what comes next,
training my heart
not to expect.
Coaching my eyes
to not project,
letting my soul
shine and reflect.

Without a clue
out of the blue,
every old sight
formed unique views.
Every past fail
carries bright hues,
lessons were learned
from which I grew.

Skin deep

Fairyland, made up of lights,
dims the brightness low at night,
sparkly dust, enhanced insight,
smiles as she glides to full flight
.

Dragon stomps into the room,
presence enters with a boom,
flowers all pause in mid-bloom,
feelings of instant dark gloom
.

Scared to meet, what goes unknown,
frightened by the abrupt tones,
convinced he was made of stone,
all just ran, he stood alone.

Fairy extends an invite,
behaving fine and polite,
standing for what she feels right,
exposing her inner might
.

Dragon responds with a zoom,
peeling off frightful costume,
fairy prince comes to full view,
fairyland quickly resumes
.

“Thanks for the compassion shown,
bad behaviors you condoned,
all my actions I will own,
your kindness helped my heart grow.”

“Fairies do not judge with sight,
instead offer pure delight,
making every dim turn bright,
accepting all forms despite.”

Earth Angel

An angel mowed
my lawn today,
wings did not show,
harps did not play.

Another one
peddled downtown.
No royal son,
no halo crown.

An angel sang
outside for tips,
all hearts felt pangs
yet money skipped.

Another one
was all alone,
helped everyone
but still unknown.

An angel clutched
my soul today,
my life was touched
in every way.

They walk with us
not standing out,
without a fuss,
without a shout.

Assist

Like minds made
to separate.
They are placed
to generate.


Distinct views,
are all alone,
all will heal
with knowledge shown.


Everyone
can soon advance,
giving gifts
of second chance.


Help someone
to start all new,
guiding them
by being true.


Light with light
brightens the path,
but does not
truly enhance.


In the dark
all light shines bright,
twinkling stars
dancing at night.


Opposites
often attract.
Providing,
lasting impacts
.

Divine love
will always spread,
mended hearts
sparkle ahead
.

Meeting

Grab a chair,
let’s have a talk,
confront my ego
one on one.

It grabs a smoke
asks for a drink,
then stared at me
eyes did not blink.

I looked right back
straight in the eye,
then smiled so bright
disarmed all fights.

“What do you want?”
Ego’s first words,
so strong and bold
self held control.

I said with ease,
“Let’s call a truce,
let’s work as one,
share balanced views.
I know you’re scared
way deep inside,
both fear and grief
make self-doubt ​hide.
You protect me,
supply my pride,
yet I’m your key
and purest guide.”

Ego replies,
so slick and sly,
” You’re my ally,
do not judge me,
within my eyes
lives all you see.
You’re in my chest,
speaking my truth,
giving me rest,
easing my blues.
You’re in my smile
and in my charm,
you give me warmth
keep me from harm.”

A blurry mirror
then showed me,
the ego side
I failed to see.


To accept it
set us both free,
to love ourselves
through all degrees.


United to find harmony
and figure out how to agree.
We slowly built comradery
resolving conflicts peacefully.


Knowing our capabilities,
we partnered up infinitely.

Loving ourselves entirely,
helps us spread more love outwardly.
