The bravest of hearts May lose its way along paths Insecure, doubtful; Love’s gifts may lift the troubled High enough to trust, believe.
Live yourself each day, If you somehow lost your way During yesterday Make today your tour de force, Continue in taking charge. Living this one life Generously given you To make an impact, Explore your paths of purpose Spread love, care, creatively. Standing in limelight May never become your fate, But a difference can Be made in many moments Choosing kindness to spare, share. You are a precious Child of the Creator held Eternally in blessing, Never forget no matter What occurs, you are valued.
Please strap me in, tight, I am afraid of rollercoasters, Runaway, lost in time, Unanchored in the How, what, when, where, who, why – It is, I am, belong. I dream of better days, But the daze of dreams cannot, Without concerted effort Hope to materialize; Reality is A making space where things Become only sometimes substantial. I have staked my ideas in loamy soil – Of inked paper, but little traction My words have created, they slide As if on brittle ice or hydroplane Under driving rain, to be read But seldom, perhaps never, again. I believe in the Word, I know nothing except language, The romance of apt phrases long Ago seized me taking most, All the heart, mind, soul of me. Who am I – If not a creator, lyricist, poet, Wordsmith, writer, an interpreter Of things glimpsed, but rarely seen? I am the shade of ink spilled, A shadow in eternity, Sent to speak, who am too weak To fight, yet engage in Extraordinary battles In the war of the soul, Continuously going on. I must not eject injuriously Now, though the rollercoaster Sore abrade me, its brutality Coaches me to fight my fears Remaining a force for LOVE, Understanding, in our Destructively sybaritic world.
What is harder than diamonds, But fuels like coal? The blatant disregard We have for the dear things Held sacred within people’s souls. Often, we, unknowing As a freshly diapered babe Are only in ourselves given to see What shines, brilliantly bright, Though around us circle Unnumbered universes of light – Revealed in eyes that announce Narratives of creation, creativity, Inspiration, independently sourced. We unthinkingly rush In Abhorrent uniform to wreak Havoc with demands to conform – The mountains, oceans, sky, Beg, please have mercy on Everyone, see, hear, know All are brief and majestic, Passing flowers of eternity. We never exist alone, galaxies, Civilizations, populations Are inherently our home. No strangeness is too strange, For love survives all vexation, Bringing reflections of potentiality. Remember everything, every – One of us is striving to graduate To higher realms of becoming, Being, meaning, which cannot Block out or isolate the present.
Where the dream falls apart And our pieces are gathered Though there be stormy weather One finds what is hidden – matters – In the days, events, times given, A beauty of souls, phenomenal part. Here to premiere such talent, Extremely important, past, now, The time we are sore prepared to welcome But must live, learning to steer the craft, Leaning so the raft not capsize Plunging us to be molested by the waves Uncaring influence, with due diligence We enter the depths altogether surrounded. There exists no up, no down, and prayer, We cry, hoping we find grace in A timely, beneficial reply – though – In a heartache, we wonder if in wandering, We each turned too far aside, too insensitive, For the Lord in His mercy to arrive, Make His presence known for one, Alone, if it matters, this life to abide. How we must each together Summon the gumption to recall – One is never only, all creation, Every population supports who We trust ourselves to be, We must learn the lesson, LOVE, Is greater than individuality – The Fruit of God – purposefully.
We sit a space apart, My attention on our hearts, Do you feel the beat? The substance clear – all the heat – Rising like spiraling sparks above us. No more precautions, exemptions, Drawing closer until we Have optimum touch, Inhibitions dispensed to Join LOVE becoming more real. All awakened by hands – Busying with bodies, complete In one another founded Such passion, a volcano – Us – exploring exploding. We, a cacophony, Destroying rigid borders A roaring tempestuous inferno Invested, withdrawing, created To distribute multitudinous happiness. LOVE blazes, flames rising higher Depositing blessing in the wake, Engrossing desire, passion, and LOVE.
