Two Truths.
echo Jan 2015
Life does not consist
In the abundance of possessions.

Nor Love
In the abundance of words.
Search your heart - and learn to measure
Who you are is what you treasure
Jan 2015 · 629
Remember...
echo Jan 2015
Write to express,
my dear -
Not to impress.
don't be scared of either - never shy!
expressions and impressions,
life lessons and digressions
these your worded passions
all let fly!

back to Life
echo Sep 2014
the thing is, I go to find 'life'

I'm still not full -
I've still not come to Life
because its You.

glass half-fool
echo Sep 2014

Once
echo Sep 2014
Once upon a time
   she had a secret
Once within her heart
   she swore she'd keep it

Once upon her time
just   o ne
          n ight
           c hanged
            e verything

This is the danger of love
   the catch of her beauty -
That secrets disappear
   when people see them

    and
       *Once before her time
                         he knew her secret.

Life Experience
echo Feb 2014
I would say Life's a journey
but that would imply
there's a set destination
& each step is a means to an end.

I would rather say Life's an experience
that 'means' are ends in themselves
& each day should be lived
for its own sake.
