Hazy muddy puddles
Glorious smiles brown and clear
Children frolic’n roll
Jumai Jul 8
She shook the darkness off her face  
and turned her face towards the sun.
raising her hands above her head
she says to the wind:
“I'm exhausted! but I have Faith"

I feel your pain--
It makes me shudder,
I seem to have lost you and now I must find you
I travel into myself
Crossing many rivers within me to find you--
Lying in the corner of myself
Legs drawn towards your chest with a great pain I cannot describe
Your face has lost its shine
Your eyes raging with fire
Your soul broken --
I grab you in a tight embrace
I wish I could wish the pain away --
Oh heart! I'm nothing without you and I need you to be me again.
I shall sew your broken parts with my thread of comfort
And seal it with love again
Be calm Oh heart please be calm
For I'm nothing without you...

We met.
We talked..
We laughed...
We drifted apart
Destiny Oh destiny,
your song is so sweet and sour.
It's sour: you play a tune so in tune with what we feel one moment and changes the next.
It hurt.
It hurts..
It's still hurting
till you return.
Destiny oh destiny
I wait for your tune to change
So these feet can begin a different dance.
Dancing away in the moments of time,
knowing that it was worth the wait.

Listen to the wind: it plays a soft tune of hope.
Listen to life: it has many lessons to teach.
Listen to the rhythm of your heart: it guides you to light.
Listen to the leafless tree during fall: for it blooms in spring.
Listen to the dried leaf on the ground: for it was once fresh and green.
Listen to an old man speak: for there is wisdom in his words.
Listen to the words of a weak aged woman: for she was once full of life.
Listen to your mistakes: for mistakes carry a lesson to be learnt.
Listen to the quietness of the night: it's a time for reflection.
Listen: for there's a voice inside of you which shows you how to navigate through life.
But you'll only find that voice if you truly
Listen...
