Search and Find

Heart of honey
may sound funny,
at times too sweet,
to feel complete.

Heart with pure love
sent from above,
no one sees it,
never quite fits.

Heart turns concrete
searching the street,
always hurting,
self subverting.

Heart becomes numb
feeling so dumb,
lost all purpose
in this circus.

Heart learns to cope,
creates new hope,
shining so bright,
attracts delight.

Heart made so pure
is self assured,
connects with soul,
heals and feels whole.

Inner Acceptance

the cuts,
hope traumas flee.
all shoves,
into gold keys.
truths are set free.
white doves,
bring what will be.
thoughts I could see.
to love,
all parts of me.

Self Compassion

Become what you want to see
Effervescent, flying free

Kindly adding hope and glee
Inner wisdom holds the keys
Noble heart sails the rough sea
Dynamic, aim to appease

Tender spirit goes unseen
Operating the machine

Your presence brings joy and peace
Overwhelming love and ease
Unique essence flows like breeze
Respect your soul and body
Show inner compassion please
Everyday, every degrees
Love yourself infinitely
Forever through what may be

Never too late

Shells of what I thought would be,
reflections stare back at me.
Challenging what my eyes see,
all encaged thoughts are set free.

My blood flows like windy seas,
pressure of a narrow stream.
Present times erase all dreams,
all hopes choke on haunting screams.

Tomorrow goals swiftly flee,
too tired to turn the key.
Future has no guarantee,
today holds what minds foresee.

Tiny shivers igniting glee,
paving every step that leads.
Mirrored paths plant hopeful seeds,
sense of pride produce sweat beads.

Echoed smiles provides great peace,
happiness flows with warm ease.
Sitting still like a wise tree,
watch time travel in the breeze.

Chances arrive suddenly,
each year bring joy jubilees.
Hopeful daydreams buzz like bees,
paint bright possibilities.
