Yeah,
I have been to the edge.

Nothing much to it...

"just give myself room for grace" he said to himself as a mantra
it just takes time
it always gets done in the end
it always does
i always rise

don't start a Monday worrying about other days yet to come..
one day at a time
the end is in sight and that causes a rush of anxiety
it just takes time
one day at a time....

sseagraves

Let it ride
let this day take its stride
Roll the dice
let the chips fall as they may
Let it ride.....
Open your eyes

MOTHER TALKS ABOUT HOW SHE'S STARTING TO GIVE UP ON ME,
AND YOU KNOW,
I'VE NEVER BLAMED PEOPLE FOR DOING THE SAME THING,
BECAUSE I GIVE UP ON MYSELF TOO.
I UNDERSTAND THAT I'M A PUZZLE MISSING TOO MANY PIECES,
AND ALL THEY EVER WANT IS A BIGGER PICTURE.
I UNDERSTAND THAT I'M A GLASS HALF EMPTY  FOR A WORLD DYING OF THIRST.

a new day
a new search for clarity
a new day for ups and downs
ebbs and flows
a new day of peace if allowed to be peaceful
a new day to search for yourself
a new day to search for ways to help others
a new day to give it all you have
a new day to give back as much as you have taken
a  new day starts with the dew still a sleep on the grass
a new day to breathe in  and breathe out
a new to  start over
a new day to start the rest of your life if you would like
a  new day to waste and squander the time you have
a new day to make a difference
a new day to love yourself more
a new day to give yourself and others room for grace
a new day just like the last new day except with fresh intentions
a new day to smile, laugh, and or cry
a new day to stand tall and with pride
a new day to do what ever you want
a new day to make count in the vast numbers of hours and days and months and years before
a new day to remember or to forget the past
a new day to enjoy the present
a new day...

"The winds outside are howling with great intention
the  noise off in the distance calls at you
"take another step into the deep black hole"
its not time to question or ponder thoughts
its time to act and react with great conviction
what is around the next corner as you whisper into the infinite
the  many overflowing dreams come hustling and bustling out from the distance
we are not alone on this vast raft called earth
hurling through space
the truth is that we know nothing
theoretical history has become the norm
"what comes around goes around", she said
We cannot give up now, we have come too far on this journey
take another breath and another one after that for good measure
dreams are only dreams if you believe
reality is fleeting
what is this that we call life?
my spirit is awakened again by the soaring sounds of  confusion
the world takes another turn around the sun
Leap year
this time to look around and buckle the boot straps tighter
go into the night with strength and come back a new soul
the trail leads you up and down the hills and valleys
the mountains are calling my name
come see what you are made of
can you pull your weight
find your spirit animal and run wild
wipe the blood and sweat from your brow and push on
stay as wild and free as you can be
never stop running wild
embrace your inner animal instincts and dream of new things to come
never tame yourself for anyone
take another whip on the back and grin
the sirens sing their songs off in the distance
reminding you how small that we really are...
