Beyond

Where stillness lays, how do I move?
You slowly slither till you improve
In silence, am I really small?
Quite the contrary, you’re alive with all

Every step becomes your road map
Are labels just my little mind’s trap?
A force inside pushes my crawl
What if this road leads to a fall?

If I lose fear then can I stand?
Taking a chance helps strength expand
Does courage come, or is it a chase?
It’s a paradox divinely guided by grace

I breathe and rise with every day
But in this journey, have I lost my sway?
So many questions hold me back
Will destiny keep me on track?

Do guided steps lead to a run?
Lessons you learn all mean you won
Was I born where this Universe begun?
As the stars whisper through the shine of my sun

In a place, through a life, and within my soul
Is this a journey of finding home, while becoming whole?
An infinite light brightens my obstacle course
If I look within will I find this light source?


Grace + Ace

Origin

Light shining through eternity,
travels swiftly for infinity,
distributes warm security,
with brilliant opportunities.

Brightly lit self-forming presence,
an everlasting essence,
cradle carries all through lessons,
amazing evanescence.


Solid darkness so mysterious,
always appearing quite serious,
fully immersing experience,
walking life feeling delirious.

Self-driven imagination,
instantly forms a creation,
unbalanced application,
requires education.

Perfectly formed projections,
filled mirrored door dimensions,
bouncing off every reflection,
building up a new perception,
A mystical existence,

balancing any resistance.
United co-existence
reaches a greater distance.

I am

Am I?
A careless tossed ember creating a fire?
A sea of scared trees paralyzed by the flames?
A gush of wind escalating dark desires?
Stormy rain showers driving away the blaze?

Am I?
The fluffiest of clouds, pillow fighting up high?
A rainy day with gleaming beams of pure light?
The brightest of rainbows exposed in the sky?
A big smile of hope shining in saddened eyes?

Am I?
The pretty, the ugly, the good, and the bad?
Every truth that you owned but never quite had?
Emotional bags that were heavy and sad?
Warm gifts of love that makes every soul feel glad?

Am I?
The voice that you hear telling you what is right?
A soothing blanket catching your fears at night?
A clear guide transforming dark thoughts into bright?
The one always there supplying deep insight?

Am I?
A shiny star winking, twinkling well displayed?
The moonlight that causes all darkness to sway?
Sunlight that brightens all your upcoming days?
True self carried in you and leading your way.

Create

Eyes full of wonder.
Build different realities,
day in and day out.

Delve

Complete acceptance is
a tough pill to swallow,
but once it is taken
it helps dissolve sorrows.


To truly surrender
is a difficult deed,
letting go of control
watering planted seeds.


A secured self-esteem
is a slippery slope,
to balance the ego
provides inner hope.

The fruits from all labor
presents life with awards,
Self-work and improvements
offer greater rewards.


Outer viewed projections,
emerge from deep within.
Reflected perceived views,
can shed light on false wins.

Looking into the mind
could empower all dreams,
acknowledge the power
let it flow like a stream
.

7 Rays

Red brings passion
excites my life,
often carries
unwanted strife.
Cuts so swiftly
like a sharp knife,
gifts of great strength
with endless drive
.

Orange keeps me
high on my toes,
makes every dream
transform to goals.
Fills all of my
ambition holes,
allowing me
to take control
.

Yellow is my
favorite ray,
guiding my heart,
painting my days,
shades my worst thoughts,
a lighter gray,
makes all my fears,
dissolve away
.

Green appears
with a playlist,
smooth energy
hard to resist,
fills up the soul

with a pure kiss,
allowing thoughts
to co-exist
.

Blue is noticed
in beads of sweat,
hard at work with
no regret.
Responsible
to repay debts,
giving to all,
till nothings left
.

Pink is pretty
always so shy,
blushed while staring
at my eyes,
this connection
made bonds fly,
unveiled deceits
quickly climbed high
.

Purple provides
the sense to know,
forms confidence
letting it show.
It swam to me,
joining my flow,
lit up my pride,
then made it grow
.

Accept

Accustomed to
receiving
“yes”,
yet “no”

can at times
bring success,
If angered

while hearing
a “no”
recall that “yes”

gives
false control.

Sensed false control

can feel
so true,
yet true effects

can not
be viewed.
No one is certain

of results,
some disillusions
,
bring exults.

Do not dismay

if what
you thought,
is not the same

as what
you bought.
Appreciate
,
when views
are shown,
lessons are gifts
,
from the
unknown.

Perception

Wake up and go, do what you do,
laugh like a fool, while playing cool.

Go through your day, no time to play,
as feelings sway, in disarray.
Hold a brave face, keep it in place,
another chase, an unknown race.
Good afternoon never goes soon,
horrible swoon, howl at the moon.
Another night, turn off the light,
thoughts hold too tight, sleep puts a fight
.

Wake up and go, write your own show,
make your life glow, change up the flow.

Go through your day, make time to play,
watch feelings sway, enjoy sun rays.

Smile on your face, that stays in place,
no need to chase a winning race.

Good afternoon, time flies too soon,
internal swoon, hello full moon.

A better night, feeling so light,
hold pillow tight, sleep feels so right.

Touch

Spread positive light.
Help whenever possible,
only if heartfelt.

Gift

Pretty pebble
thrown in the air,
left all alone
nobody cared.
Carried powers
way deep inside.
Unseen by all
but the wise eye
.

Young girl in search
for some control,
all by herself
taking a stroll.
Aims to fulfill,
numbed voided spots,
that broke apart
within her heart.


Finds slightest shine,
within a rock,
for the first time
feeling a spark.
Keeping it safe
deep in her pocket,
the perfect link,
for her prized locket.


Instantly clears,
all of her fears.
All sadness steers,
when it is near.
Every old tear,
transform to cheers.
Glad it appeared,
she holds it dear.


Pretty pebble,
felt loved at last.
Never ignored,
like in the past.
All special gifts
can now be shared,
emitting love,
deleting despair
.

Finding her way,
warmed by sun rays.
Embracing days,
from where she lays.
Feeling amazed,
empathy raised.
Rewards that pay
are vowed to stay.


Graceful pebble.
Secure young girl.
Gifts to this world,
like a fine pearl
.
Connected fast
attached they curled.
Enjoyed their dance
united twirl.
