In your heart

Standard

We are all born

with

Big love in our hearts.

Complete and bottomless.

We are perfect souls.

But some get trampled

And abandoned on this path,

This journey of life

And we learn to shrink love.

We hide it.

Bury it deep,

Or carry it in a cage keeping it separate

From our heart so as not to touch it

Directly.

But deny as you will,

You are stil love.

You are big, beautiful love.

And the work you do to try and hide it

Consumes every waking hour.

Every dream you dream.

Searching for love elsewhere.

Your love is good enough for you.

Open the cage

And put love back where it belongs

In your heart.

I Do

Standard

 

15 years old
Asleep on the wooden
Floor
In a sheep station in the
Outback.

Something.
Someone woke me.
All was still.
I could hear the heavy breathing of deep slumber from those around me.

And through the windows shone glorious
Like none my eyes had seen before,
Moonlight,
Lighting up the night
Like the sun.

Carefully i rose from my
Sleeping bag
So as not to disturb the others
And tiptoed to the door.

Such excitement filled my blood
As i stepped outside.
There
The moon
She showed herself
In such splendor,
Super moon
So big
On the horizon
She touched my soul.
My heart swelled to greet her
And my tears thanked her.

I believe I was cleansed that night
As the others dreamt,
I lived.

There i was
Standing in the red dirt
Glowing  beneath my feet.
Ancient voices
Whispering to my heart.
Ancient ghosts holding my hands
Showing me
Teaching me
Without words.

Holding  me in love.
Bathing me in holy light.
I do believe in magic.

Wildness

Standard

Do not fear your own wildness.
Set yourself free.
The part of you
That you put to sleep
When you were young
After being told
You were too much.
Always too much.
Too much beauty.
Too much
Laughter.
Too much loudness.
Too many questions.
Let your wild hair down.
Let your wild voice sing.
Let your wild feet dance.
Let your wild eyes see.
Let your wild arms embrace.
Let your wild out.
Set yourself free.

For You

Standard

the tremble in his voice

the ache in his heart

his blood and sweat

the reach of his hand

His strength as he stands

you have made his world beauty itself

he has walked this earth to see you smile and carries you everywhere with him.

his dreams

his heart malleable in your heartbeat

his eyes

his soul for you

all for you
