Here
Now
I shall meet you
in the middle
Even a step
or two more
if need be
Once there
let's put our differences aside
- joining hands -
and with pure motive
remind each other
what we love about us
As we take our first breath
We are handed a tool
Given to us by the creator of the universe

It never leaves our hand
Although we cannot see it
Or feel it
We can sense it

Some are meant to change people
Into better or worse humans

Some are meant to carve the world
Into the place we love or hate

Some are meant to give us hope
Which without we would fall

Some are meant to teach us
What we would never know, other-wise

Some are meant to strengthen us
To become who we really are

Some are meant to save us
Before we disappear

And some are meant to destroy
The better humans we are
The world we love
The hope we stand upon
The knowledge we know
And the strength we lean on

Which tool is in your grasp?

We are in control of what we grow
In our heart, mind and life
What do we want to cultivate?
We are all capable, all lovable
Broken or scarred
Trampled or traumatized
We can mend those breaks
Strengthen our life force
Choose to heal
How can we grow from our heart space?
Healing is a journey. If you are feeling depressed, sad, angry or unfocused, please seek help. I believe in all because I have seen evil turn good. I have seen those dying heal. Please seek healing on this journey
I never knew that
I could have enough of it
The energy to stay awake
More power to be alive
The gut to sit and wait
and perhaps tonight
You bother to visit
To shed some more light
It's incredible to see what love can do and give to people, don't you aggree?

This fire,
which burns so freely.
Welcomes me to where I belong.

The fire burns so calmly.
Nothing worries it,
and nothing stresses it.
It can be extinguished at any second,
at the whim of those who overpower it's might.
I will allow it to stay,
as I don't want to lose another.

I can get a torch,
I can strengthen the force of a candle.
I can remove it's relaxing abillity,
and let it grow uncontrolled.
However, I can't lessen it's burning without extinguishing it.
and I can't calm it without killing it.

Burn on, you wicked fire.
Burn on.
I burnt my finger while writing this. Candles sure are fun things to mess about with.

Too much

death
sorrow
grief

friends
family
loved ones

plucked from life
like lily or rose

gone in an instant
petals of memories strewn
as we look back
on life's path

all is surreal

in those times
let us turn
to those
not yet chosen
for death's bouquet

let us strengthen each other
struggle together
to find
a core of peace
deep inside

may we love more profoundly
accept life more fully
be more conscious of those
remaining

Perhaps even say
the things we wish
we had

to those who left.

'Tis a hard world.
Strengthen your hearts.
Strengthen, not harden.

In the mirror I see me,
All that I believe myself to be.
No one is more me than me.
If wonderful people,
That do wonderful things,
Believe that I can do anything,
And any thing I can do wonderfully,
Than I must be wonderful.
In the mirror I stand alone.
I control my own future.
Whether I fail or succeed is all on me.
No one else can tell me "I can't" or "I won't",
Because I am the only I that I know.
I may never be as good as the person beside or behind me,
But I can guarantee that I will be better than who I was before.
I can not see what's in store,
Further down the road for me.
But if I've accomplished anything,
I've accomplished being me.
The only thing I've every really wanted to be.
Be true to who you are and nothing can go wrong :):):)

-your arms-
          they lift me up
-your words-
          hold me together

but those eyes...
         they melt my heart
