I have been on a journey
To get a light infusion.
You see this all
Is just an illusion;
Merely confusing the mind.
Believing the clock
That it is all on
Mixed up emotions.
Thinking we are strange.
Making man made concoctions
Keeping us sleepy and disturbed.
Feigning sanity, insanity and all
That is in between.
It is all relative but some refuse to see beyond.
Walking on a tightrope listening
To the echoes of the tick and the tock.
Frozen in fear. Frozen in shock.
Forgetting all the life they have got.
Gratitude gifts latitude.
Awareness creates limitless possibilities.

Celebrating the failures and suffering of
Any soul speaks
Clearly of your own inner turmoil.
The birds are returning.
No song left unsung;
The volume of their song
Bright breasts puffed.
Not a post, wire or branch
Off limits to poise upon and strike chord.
Calling to those who will listen as sun touches
Replies fill the air with hope,
Nature does hearken unwavering.
There are those master manipulators
Hellbent on planting seeds of destruction,
Will convince you to help water and sow
The garden as well;
Smiling all the while.
There are lists people make,
All of these qualities and qualifications
What makes a “strong” person.
I laugh at those words,
If you wake every morning and live
And that is all you feel you have the strength to do,
You are strong.
We are each strong in our big, beautiful,
Stand strong and bright dear heart
For you are love
And contrary to naysayers and nonbelievers
That is enough;
You are enough￼.
When one least expects
Along comes the soul,
The one who simply loves you
And your human ways.
You have been afraid to even spill milk
Because the world did almost end once;
Unseen bullet holes.
Unseen scars that seeped into bone.
But that was then
And that was them,
This is now
And they are gone.
It has been painful to dig out
The veins of the abuse
In her body,
Mind and heart
For it is in her skin,
Her bones and breath;
The self loathing and unworthiness.
The light is getting out now
Slowly but surely
Bit by bit
She is allowing love return
In once more.
