Do Over

Posted by & filed under poetry.

Do over. Starting now. No more carrying other people’s pain. No more carrying their mistakes either. We are each carrying enough of our own. Time to drop those, too, into the past where they belong. Unencumbered, let us move forward With a heart full of love, A mind full of peace, And lips full of… Read more »

A place of grace

Posted by & filed under poetry.

Let me live from a place of grace, where my light shines bright and judgement melts like dripping wax until, in the end, nothing remains but a burning light over the remains of what once was. photo credit: Alexander Babl Melted Candle via photopin (license)

The Story of Me

Posted by & filed under my life, poetry.

As I looked into the mirror tonight and saw my wrinkles I wondered, when do I have enough wrinkles that I cross the line into elderly? Then I realized that there is no line to cross but that I am walking the line – a linear journey from birth to death and that the wrinkles… Read more »

See it that way

Posted by & filed under poetry.

Life is beautiful. If you see it that way. Life is ugly. If you see it that way. The way we see the world is a reflection of what is inside. People are beautiful. If you see them that way. People are ugly. If you see them that way. The way we view other people… Read more »

They said

Posted by & filed under poetry.

You’re ugly. You’re weird. We don’t like you. They said. Really? Why did you do that? You’re supposed to do it this way. They said. Don’t! Leave that alone. No, you can’t try that. They said. Be a good girl. Do what you are told. Stop asking questions. They said. Quit daydreaming. Focus. Get this… Read more »

You lied to me today. You know it. And I know it. I watched you like a fish stuck in a net slowly wriggle free with a few words here a few words there. Finally, you breathed a sigh of relief as the net fell away. Only you didn’t escape. I let you loose. You weren’t… Read more »

A tale of two truths

Posted by & filed under poetry.

I speak my truth. You speak yours louder. There is no room for my truth alongside yours. You live your life assured, convincted, hardened, shut down to any new ideas. They don’t matter. Until, one day, you discover your truth is a lie. Adrift, confused, humbled, you finally open your heart. And we walk side… Read more »

The Journey

Posted by & filed under poetry.

Who I was and who I am met together one day. Who I am smiled with love at who I was. Who I was looked with wonder at who I am. Who I was apologized to who I am, and who I am said, “Don’t. It all happened for a reason.” And as they were… Read more »

The dance

Posted by & filed under poetry.

I dance in the love of the divine, Leaving all fear behind. Letting go of the lead, The dance becomes magical, Effortless, Free. Why did I resist for so long, Instead of trusting the hands Of the perfect partner. Together we have left The crowded dance floor And twirl among the stars. Don’t follow me,… Read more »

Perfect you

Posted by & filed under poetry.

You are perfectly you. There is no one else just like you So don’t compare. Just be you! Treat yourself with grace. You don’t have to do, do, do. That is to please others who have expectations of you. You are not here for that. You are here to share your gifts, Your love, Your… Read more »
