Where My Soul Resides

20161012_090922

Being outside where
my soul resides
Inhaling scents
in the air
I feel wind blow
through my hair
Feeling the energy
of our earth
coursing
though my skin
Seeing beauty
everywhere
I look
Tasting sweet fruits
grown from
soot and soil
Truly appreciating
their toil
Hearing songs
of land and sky
Knowing there’s much more
than catches the eye
Connecting to the Source
Giving blessings
for this course
Absorbing ions
that cleanse
So I may shine
to no end
Radiating love
from within
So the light
may never dim

Voices In My Head

20161005_173315

So many voices swirling around

Starting at the top

working their way down

Telling me what to do

when and how

While I’m trying to get

them all to shut up now

So I can hear the voice

from within

Demanding to be heard

over the din

Commanding its presence over

all the logic and emotions

Chaotically fighting this

inner felt notion

of clarity and knowing

Utilizing the power

that drives the ocean

Harnessing my energy

igniting synchronicity

Aligning one’s self

to the Source

Sending away the

logical voices

No longer doubting

my intuitive choices

As If…

Who on earth

are you

to tell me

what I need

to do?

As if I asked

for your advice

Or indicated

I was struggling

with a vice

 

I’m quite happy

don’t you see?

Oh no, wait ha-ha

With you it’s always

“All about ME”

Because I’m not

fulfilling an

expectation of your’s?

Take your pathetic

projections and shove

it up your drawers

Your arrogance and

condescending tone

Are laughable at best

At the very least

just go home

Lord, is this a test?

To see if I can find

compassion and forgiveness

Trying to convince you

I will never feel

your indifference

Just let me get back

to the beautiful space

I create

Before your

Miserable spirit thought

It had a hand

In my

Fate

Introvert Roar

When I say I want

To be left alone

Please don’t read

Into emotions I’ve

Not yet shown

 

You’ve done nothing

Wrong, there is

No one else

Nothing is “going on”

 

Understand my time is

Precious to me

There are things I want

To do with out you

Can’t you see?

Fretting is useless

try understanding please

 

My Art, my Muse, my mind

Need downtime and space

To create, absorb or find

The next endeavor

I’ll partake

 

Taking this personal

Is simply selfish

My world is not

Your’s to take

 

The moment I need to

Re-explain this

You’ll fine me

Gone without a trace

 

Respect me, care for me

See me for who I am

Otherwise, believe me

You’ll take a hike

Quicker than I

Can say Shazam

 

Balancing Act

2013-03-15_10-59-22_220

Trying to write down

struggling to express

these feelings and emotions

causing me distress

A few words here

some more there

Nothing  sounds right

so I simply stare

at a white sheet of paper

Blinding glare

Begging for the ink

to spark the flare

Endless stream of fire

Energy escaping all around

Unable to be contained

Releasing what was bound

up in disguise

As balance

and structure

never really been content

to stay boxed into culture

Thinking “Expectations and Labels”

were attainable goals

Now laughing as I realize

I simply can’t do what I’m told

Veiled as worry and concern

Or love and generosity

When deep down the motives

benefit only one at this party

And it’s NOT ME, you see…

Who gains a thing

No, Pieces and Chunks of  me

have gone missing

Stolen away by those

who bill for attention

and smother with gold

aiming for retention

as the ultimate goal

Not realizing , without water

their bloom will wither away

Honor Your Soul

Often times I find it’s
Difficult to achieve
The nourishment, freedom
We all need to relieve
The burning desire inside
Propelling toward an alternate course
Away from the daily grind
Oh what a powerful driving force

Imploring us to honour and nurture
Gifts bestowed from the Divine
We are here to contribute in a way        Only we can shine
Ignoring the force inside of us
Is akin to swimming upstream
You can do it, if you choose
Or flow along the path of dreams

Where imagination ignites a spark
Deep down inside our minds
Translating into conscious action
Fulfilling our purpose over time

Notable people we read about
In the history books of today
Recognized for an accomplishment
Leaving out baby steps along the way
Each moment, each act
Building exponentially upon itself
Growing, expanding the reach
Bathed in Universal Wealth

Uncountable riches, expanding
Empowerment, Courage and Joy
Knowing our purpose
Filling the void
Enabling us to clearly see
The path ahead lit brightly
For you and me to continue, inspired
By dreams that come nightly

Inside Out / Outside In

It feels yucky outside
Is that right? Can it be?
Yes it definitely feels
Bad out there
So much pain, don’t you see?
All of a sudden I’m scared
How can this be? That’s not me!?!
I got to try this again
I need to truly see

Get on out there
Stand on the porch
Listen to the frogs
Feel the air blow
Take a moment to pause
And hear the creek flow

See,its not that bad
Because you just chose to see
The silver lining in our world
A beautiful never-ending sea
Of love and light

So to let God know
I’m thankful I’m around
I’m getting out there
I plan on spreading
Love into the air
Doing what I can to
Heal hearts in despair
Providing comfort to those
Who no longer care
Those who are feeling
Yucky on the inside
