Refinement in Confinement

In this time of confinement We are forced to be released of our normal routines of escape Our addictions, our anxieties appeased Those outlets we regularly used To escape our troubles and our fears Those crutches we thought we needed forever Have been broken We left home to relieve our stresses Turmoil and pain Of jobs and marriage troubles Of loneliness and self doubt … Read More Refinement in Confinement

Comfort Yourself

  Creating something Is the best way to find yourself It challenges you to push past your self doubt If you don’t give up If you push through the frustration You will be given an opportunity To find your inner beauty So even if you are not an artist Do something artistic It will force you to grow And you may discover That right … Read More Comfort Yourself

It’s Time

    I look up and I see her Her hair is moving with the soft wind as she glides Upon the path beside the ocean Where the rocks meet the crashing waves It is a still and beautiful morning With every step she takes Her shoulders are straighter Finally taking care of herself In ways she could not find to do before Her … Read More It’s Time

Leave the Circus outside the Circle

With every passing decade I learn I grow from the experiences Hardship or Triumph Makes no difference They both produce fruit Because I am watching Observing the actions and responses Feeling my soul deep inside How else to measure the growth But to look into others eyes Hear their words Or lack of them Do they turn to me Or fall away Was it … Read More Leave the Circus outside the Circle

Us and Them?

Us and Them Truly words to make you stop Think about the meaning Shall we stay here in the USA Or is the world the platform To try to understand the dilemma We battle and set to war Everyday a quagmire Each to their own understanding So sad but so true We cannot control the perceptions Nor the responses to Differentials between us Some … Read More Us and Them?

In the Still of the Morning

Ideas awaken the mind Creativity flows in the wee hours Most are sleeping I’m awake Connecting dots Between past and future I am the gateway Here in this present moment I decide what to leave in What should be shed like a skin Past is gone but it teaches Future can be wildly exciting If only I choose right Which way to go Before … Read More In the Still of the Morning

Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

  From conception to 8 years of age The brain develops at lightning speed We are led, as in a hypnotic trance At the mercy of others guidance What we feed it, will grow Starve what you do not want to live there What we do then and from there Makes us who we are body and soul The mind is the power behind … Read More Mind Bending- Rapid Growth

The Hope Of New

There is a time for everything under the sun There are decades and eras They bring with them trials Tragedies and Triumphs The best of times The worst of times The lessons learned To only give up when the ship Will take you down So you must jump Jump and the Universe will catch you Stubbornness may serve you Or it may drown you … Read More The Hope Of New

The Seed of Transformation

A mustard seed is the most humble of all So small, so unassuming It does not know that its destiny is to be GREAT and TALL When it fell to the ground it worried Many birds came and ate many seeds But this little seed had a destiny It was trampled upon Dirt covered it Darkness consumed it It wondered whether It would have … Read More The Seed of Transformation

The Three Little Pigs

  The first little pig lived in a straw house He had no worries about anything He wanted a quick start He wanted to go about life Hating to worry or fuss Not a strategist was he A live by the seat of your pants one he was A shared thought by the young Until life smacked him down a notch When everything went … Read More The Three Little Pigs

Take it to the limit

Come on, and take it Just one more step I know you can’t see Where you are going is a mystery And it’s been so hard But try with all your might For one second to believe That I am trustworthy To lead you on To where you won’t need A guide to rely on You will have an epiphany I know, I have … Read More Take it to the limit

Inspired

I am at one with myself I am a teacher I am a listener I am a pro-claimer I want more So much more I want to follow The path that leads me to it I am standing on the high board Not sure if I know how to swim But I want to trust That my soul knows the way Fueled by my … Read More Inspired
