Choice

Afraid of losing
a comfort I know.
Scared of reducing
devotion you show.

I walk on tiptoes
to not ring alarms.
I pose like a rose,
win you with my charm.

Frightened by your eyes
they may see my flaws.
Jump if you imply
you need a bit more.

Your needs must come first
always placed above.
Quench all of your thirsts
make sure you feel loved.

Embrace breaths of ease,
decide to relax.
Focusing on me
not looking for cracks.

Seize light from within,
sense as hearts attach.
Self-love always wins,
all else will attract.

Heartbeat

They say all emotions,
live within the heart,
degrees of devotion
sets each one apart.

A heart pumped by anger,
rejects a soft touch,
relies on an anchor
or revolts too much.

A heart pumped by sadness,
adheres when embraced,
pounds swiftly to gladness,
igniting its pace.

A heart pumped by true love
flutters like a dove
lingering up above
warms souls like a glove.

A heart pumped by pure joy,
gives off neutral hues,
known to quickly destroy
all unwanted views.

They say that all feelings,
dwell deep in the heart.
Embrace inner healing,
balance every part.

Inner Flow

I tap my feet
to my own beat.
I move around
on solid ground.

I step on land
not on quicksand.
I make mistakes
but never break.

I form techniques
for what I seek.
I do not speak
words that are bleak.

I catch the ball
my goals befall.
I hardly wait
or hesitate.

I try to touch
but not too much.
I expand grace
but do not chase.

I search inside
follow my guide.
I emit light
make dark paths bright .

I like to live
life judgments free.
I know that you
are one with me.

I build a life
with my insight.
I choose the views,
paint joyful hues.

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.

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
.

Enjoy

Needs are always there,
wants are often pushed aside.
Treat yourself, indulge.

Inner love

A lonely dove
looking for love,
took a short break
for her own sake
.

She looked inside
and found some pride,
feeling a shove
she flew above.


She felt awake
finding a lake,
her wings were wide,
oh, what a ride!


She saw her form
and felt so warm,
her glide was fast
in love at last.


Attention came,
found her twin flame,
flew by her side
their hearts now tied.


She did not ask
but found her task,
true love within
always brings wins
.

Reveal

I jumped through hoops,
and skinned my knees,
in hopes that you
would notice me
.

Erased my thoughts,
always agreed,
and prayed that you
would care for me.


I changed my style
and how I speak,
hoping that you
start loving me.


You then approved,
and filled with glee,
not knowing you
did not know me.


Until one day,
I set you free,
returning back
to find true me.


On that same day,
I let you see,
the shine that glowed
inside real me.


We then embraced,
our destiny,
and formed a life
for you and me.


Acceptance for
being unique,
allowed us both
to be happy
.
