The Awakening

I’m coming out, I’m going home
I’m heading to a higher plane
Love lost, love found
Love will take you higher
I fall asleep, I dream awake
I live in both these states
Crazy it sounds, confused I’m not
This is the awakening

Shadow

Shadow walks
Shadow talks
Shadow left
His footprint
On my heart
Shadow is sweet
Shadow is mean
Shadow is a constant
Friend indeed

Scars Are Cool

Scars are cool
So they say
Until they feel the rips and tears
That punctures the heart
And pierce the soul
Leaving an eternal burn

Naked

I was left naked
After baring my soul
But I no longer fear nudity
I accept myself

Across The Sea

Though the tides were rough
And the journey long
Across the sea
I had to flee
For there must be
A better life
Than the one I left behind

Swept Away

As the leaves fall from trees so tall
I feel so small
As I Lay down on the ground below
So far beneath the top of the trees
Nestled by all these silent beings so rooted in the ground
That only a rare act of nature could bring them down
A gentle breeze brushed against my skin
So cool and so calm
Easing my fears and caressing my cares
That for a moment
My mind was free of a thousand thoughts and a thousand fears
That must have been carried away by the breeze, like the leaves from trees
To be buried in the grass or swept away .

Not Finish Yet

There will be times you smile
When you just want to cry
But, it’s not your style
And only you know why
You take it on the chin
There’s no time to sigh
Your life has been an uphill climb
With vultures around you
Can’t wait for your demise
But, there’s good within you
So they can’t touch you
Let them flutter their feathers
You know what awaits you

Put On a Happy Song

If you want to feel happy
And not be so crabby
Then put on a happy song
If the blues make you sad
And you want to be glad
Then put on a happy song
When the world is weighing down
And you can’t lift the weight
Then put on a happy song
If your heart won’t change it’s tune
And you’re stuck on being blue
Please don’t go cramping my mood
Just put on a happy song
For if you can’t let go the pain
And you want to pass the blame
Maybe a song will change your mind
So put on a happy song
There’s a message in the music
That is sure to affect the brain
And if you don’t believe this true
Then keep listening to the blues
And watch the lights dim on you

Locked In, Looking Out

Looking through this wire framed
I feel so caged
But who’s to blame
In this emotional state
I’ve kept myself locked
By wires and frames
I can easily break
I know what’s waiting
On the other side
For through the links
I can see heaven’s glow
So there’s no need to be trapped
This I know
I could cut through the wires
And bask in the glow

The Dark

Is it the Stars or the Moon
Or the Sun we hope shine soon
What’s this uneasiness with the night
That cause our fears to balloon
So confused and convinced
That the dark is to be feared
We close our eyes to it’s brilliance
Perturbed by the strength in it’s stillness
That we stay blind to it’s depth
Praying for a light
We’re ashamed to see in the dark

He Doesn’t Know

He doesn’t know
I know he’s scared
He doesn’t know
There’s no need to fear
He doesn’t know
How much I care
He doesn’t know
No other compare
He doesn’t know much
But heartache and pain
His eyes are blurred
By grief and shame
So he can’t see me
Through the haze
To know my heart
Is kind and true

No Divinity In Separateness

Femininity on the rise
Masculinity feels threatened
I’m not surprise
Humanity has always been partial
If it’s not this cause, it’s that cause
What are we fighting for
From one extreme to the next
Where is the equanimity
Humans hate themselves
Thus no acceptance
No equilibrium
No serenity
No divinity
No love
Not even for the sake of
Our sanity
This is insanity
Humanity at war with itself
Forever burning internally in eternity
Until we realized there’s no divinity in separateness

Waiting On That Miracle

Waiting on that miracle
You promised many moons ago
That made me took the plunge
Now I’m searching oracles
For answers I can’t seem to find
This feels like an eternal test
You said, it’s for the best
But, it’s not feeling good right now
Where is that miracle
I’ve already read all the oracles
Seen all the posted signs
Followed all the trails you left
Along the path that you design
But, still haven’t seen that miracle
Have you forgotten the promised made
For it’s nowhere in sight
And what a price, I’ve already paid

Like A Butterfly

Love transforms like a butterfly
No need to cry
You’ll soon know why
So wipe away that tear your eye
For you’ll soon see
You’re not going to die
Though your world seem crazy
Upside down right now
Hanging by a thread, at the end of your rope
Love transforms like a butterfly
You may feel alone
But, you’re never alone
There are angels standing by
With wings so wide to take you high
And catch your fall if you should slither
So take that leap and dive in deeper
Into your essence, your soul, your being
And soon you too will be floating
Like a butterfly

You’re A Gem

Those eyes that smile
That touch so kind
Leave a feeling so sublime
It breaks through the numbness
In the dead of night
When all seem forlorn
No joy to find
You were that gem
That twinkle
That light that shine
That guided me through
The dead of night

Breathe Life Into Me

You broke me
You emptied me
You make space
To breathe
New life into me

Release

I’m letting it go
I’m letting them go
In all forms and wrappings
And disguises they come
I know their essence
I know their pretense
I know the spirit
In which they come
So I’m releasing it
I’m releasing them
I’m removing the culprits
From my presence
That kept me bounded
In shackles; strangled

Fading

A once vibrant and blooming flower
Must now shed her layers
As the structure that once contained her
Is no longer fit to serve her
She has outgrown this way of living
Her form is now changing
So gracefully she surrenders
To the process of aging
She has served her time, and served it well
She endured the elements of the changing weather
Though brief her time, it was well served
There’ll be new flower blooming
And soon she’ll be forgotten
But she doesn’t mind
Her time is up, and she could use some rest

Taking Time To Heal

I’m taking time out to heal
From rips so deep
I’m left wasted, so it seems
Could use some stitching where I’m torn
Don’t mind the scars that it will leave
Just patch me up I want to heal
This heart’s not made of steel
I feel it bleeding out it’s soul
And, soon it may turn cold
I don’t want to turn cold
So I’m taking time out to heal
So I’m no longer bleeding at the seam

Soaring

We are no different than the birds
Soaring, flying, reaching for the sky
Above the noise of the world beneath us
We’ve a bird’s eye view
What’s there to discuss
We are leaving behind all the fuss
Not a care in the world, we’re flying high
So high, we can almost touch the sky
I can’t lie, I thought I died
Didn’t know us humans could really fly

Take It To The Sky

In a world so imperfect
We are blessed with perfect skies
Laced with perfect sunrise
These eyes can’t deny
That just beyond the horizon
In the distant sky
True brilliance lies
So take your cares to the sky
Allow your mind to be unburdened
And your heart to heal, at the breaking of a new day

Years Of Innocence

On years of innocence I reminisce
On how lost in my mind I was as a child
I played a lot, and had some fun
But my inner world was such a treat
I retreated there when I felt defeat
I was too thin-skinned to cope for long
So I created places kind and mild
To unwind, unravel and come undone
I imagined being an adult, such magical beings
They could come and go, and do as they please
Unburdened, unworried about being punished
Or the punching bag for grow-ups woes
They could curse and swear with not a care
While your poor soul trembled in fear
Such adults I strive not to be
They are scary and frightening
Unevolved beings
Who kept me lost in my inner world
To retreat and escape their screams
Now looking back, they weren’t years of innocence
Just a lost child with dreams of escape

Yellow

Yellow is clarity
Positivity and sunshine
Yellow is the color of what I strive to be
Yellow is fresh, it’s light and easy
It’s not red, consume by passion
Nor is it beige, dull and boring
Yellow is just mellow
Just like me

Uranus – The Trouble Maker

You always catch me by surprize
Never failing to burst my bubble
Is this how you get cheap thrill

Like a lightning bolt you’re always charged
Loaded and ready to bring the shock
I can’t take much more before I crack

When will you learn I’m not a rock
And finally cut me some slack
Stop being such a pain and take a nap

Ready For Real Love

You came to me
In a dream last night
That took me by surprise
You walked up to me
Then sat next to me
And kissed me featherlight
This is a shock to me
You don’t speak to me
But in my dream
You had plenty to say
This is weird for me
Please don’t stalk my dreams
If in reality you’ve nothing to say

The Secret

All is well, I’m feeling swell
Though rain clouds dwelling
Above my head
Could surely bring hell
I hold the secret to survive this spell
So let the clouds swell and the sky spills out
But, I’ll never break this shell and tell
Until this life I bid farewell

A Moment Of Grace

A glimpse of hope, a moment of grace
A splash of colors across the sky
And, in this moment, in this place
My feet stood still with my face to the sky

Lost in this moment, lost in this place
A hollow inside now filled with grace
As a calm wind brushed against my face
A once lost soul now found her place
In an array of colors across the sky

Others walk by, not knowing why
I stood still with my face to the sky
But, in this moment, in this place
I found magic, I found grace

I Wear My Heart

I wear my heart on my face
For all to see
With no makeup or lipstick
I lay it bare
Unashamed, unafraid
Of the content it shares
Like screwface and grimace
It will make some sigh, ouch!
Don’t get me wrong it’s not all filled with gloom
There are butterflies, and rainbows, and sunshine too
It weathered the seasons and it all shows
Spring, summer, autumn and winter blues. It’s all true
We all weathered these seasons in our own way
But, I can’t help but wear mine upon my face

The Challenge

In the absence of noise
I hear silence speak
louder and clearer
Than ever before,
Do you remember me?
You’re still trapped
In the violence
Bothered by the tyrants
Thou you speak of such stillness
You’re not quite balance, that’s your challenge
Finding your balance

Keep On


You
Crucified
My emotions
Hoping I’d sacrifice
My soul devotion
For foul words
Spoken
But I keep on
Coping
You can keep on
Talking
Soon I’ll be walking

Confused


You
Musing
You had me
Lockdown
Using
Mad skills
To confused me
But
You had me confused
Thinking I could be used
Shattered by abuse

Thinking


I’ll
Let you
Keep on thinking
Thinking I’m in a coma
Fallen victim
To your mind control
While I’m only resting
Playing dead
To survive the trauma

Focusing on
My inner blessings
Knowing I should keep on
Trusting
Paying attention
To these lessons
So there’ll be
No second guessing
When it’s time for
My resurrection

Stay in this state – hurting
But I no longer

Been reprogrammed

Buckle Up

Buckle up
It’s going down
I’m shutting out the noise
I got a date with my inner voice
It’s been calling me for quite some time
So I must attend to it on the double
Or there will be trouble
I’ve been shutting it down
And putting it off
So now I’m about to lose it

He Called Me Bipolar

He called me bipolar, and that wasn’t very nice
He’s just a mean disgruntled man, with a heart of coal
Thinking attacking my emotions will give him control
But, I know his type, he feeds on sweet souls

He called me bipolar and it still weighs on my mind
That he gets such pleasure from being unkind
He so casually silence me, each and every time
Like my feelings doesn’t matter; holds no value like dirt

He called me bipolar and I’ll never forget
How easily he dismissed me, knowing my fragile state
I could show him bipolar, but that wouldn’t be kind
He’s already a very sad man, I’ll pray for his soul

Flower Power

I could write all day about the power of a flower
These alluring creatures breathe life into my being
But such graceful creatures with such delicate features
Are only meant to be enjoyed for a season
So for this reason, I’ll sit still with these creatures
Take some pictures of their features
Breathe in their nature and treasure this moment
For my time is limited with such exquisite creatures
