Prioritize

One,
Two,
Three,
on your feet.
Stand upright,
share your light.
Hand out joys,
mute your voice.
Offer ears,
soothe their fears.

One,
Two,
Three,
aim to please.
Give your all,
capture falls.
Put them first,
feed their thirst.
Never fail,
help hopes sail.

One,
Two,
Three,
turn the key.
Make a change,
set the stage.
You count too,
make wants true.
Self esteem,
pushes dreams.

One,
Two,
Three,
set them free.
Let them go,
own your goals.
Do for you,
create views.
Take a spin,
love within.

Expend

Sacrifice can be okay
but should not rule every day.
Resentments will find their way,
at times they linger and stay.

Give to give, never to take,
do not make pure actions fake.
Hear silent cries as they shout,
fulfill needs without a doubt.

No one gives what they don’t have,
assisting, cutting in half.
Provide fully, then grant more,
selfless life or endless chore.

People do what one allows,
form boundaries, draw them out.
Take a stand, find inner voice,
proving acts come from free choice.

Search within, find the right words,
sing them loud, so they are heard.
Stand up straight to take a stand,
let heartbeats dictate commands.

Expose true self, feel secure,
self-acceptance is a cure.
Confidence makes each step sure,
deeds are clear, intentions pure.

Reinvented

Yours truly made a change,
invented myself new.
Controlling my own stage,
to me, I will be true.

All energy within
wishes to shine brightly.
Now destined for the wins,
embracing joys tightly.

The new me always laughs,
likes to dance and enjoy.
No longer feels like half,
filled up every last void.

Some thunderstorms crash hard
to clear up hidden wounds.
Sometimes a single drop
can feed a whole commune.

Why cry and carry pain?
Instead, let go and heal.
Life should be filled with gain,
not problems and ordeals.

Each breath will come and go,
lifetimes can feel so brief.
Inner change helped me grow,
by turning a new leaf.

Value

You cover my mouth
I lower my eyes,
You talk and you laugh.
I feel like a sigh.

I swallow so hard
and walk very light,
you strut and mingle
with nothing to hide.

My best friend is me,
I am all that I have.
To know myself better,
is my master plan.

I take a deep breath
then slowly exhale,
my strength emerges,
take life for a sail.

My head held up high,
smile placed on my face,
I conquer it all,
with feet still in place.

The last deed to do
wave goodbye to you,
releasing your views
lets my dreams come true.

Hope

Swallow my sadness
like it is a pill.
Exposing my heart
I stumble, it spills
.

Swift hollow dulled pain,
consuming my chest.
My smile shining bright,
inside I need rest.

Shadow of my soul
haunts me to the core.
The more I receive
further, I deplore.

Wallow in dim pride,
a well-disguised ploy.
To keep worries far,
behave like a toy.

Mirrored reflection,
intently I stare.
See my younger self,
then whisper I care.

Summon inner strength,
demand it to stay,
command it to grow,
with each passing day.

Pearl

A muted voice sings in your head,
the opaque words can not be read.
Loud blurry scenes live in your mind,
imagined lines left undefined.

Stardust hues create happy thoughts,
blinding both eyes from wars once fought.
Comfort your skull on silky sheets,
while all you seek is what you meet.


A glowing beam sets on your face,
shining your skin each waking day.
Sliding on rafts through streams foreseen,
living so posh, feeling so clean.

Melting my face in your deep eyes,
I meet myself, what a surprise.
All that I know, at once I see,
finding the key that lives in me.
