Strength

Be Kind,

For you know not the strength of your words,

On the heart.

 

Be Thoughtful,

For you know not the strength of your understanding,

On the Mind.

 

Be Brave,

For you know not the strength of your courage,

On the Journey.

Rainbow

That day…

The world forgot to be kind,

and you forgot to be patient,

and in between figuring out who you were,

and where you came from,

and why you were here,

the clouds of life,

poured on you,

and your heart cried with the rain…

but,

when it was over,

and though the world did not change,

you felt lighter and soul felt cleansed,

and you noticed the smiles among the frowns,

and drenched in what was your pain,

you found that little piece of joy again,

you followed the rainbow of life.

1.) It is okay to be yourself, to drift with your soul, to lay in peace.

Drifting on the cloud of imagination,

my bohemian soul,

finds peace

2.) It is okay to be sad, to be mad, to cry when the heart is heavy…it’s okay to let go, okay to be human.

That day…

The world forgot to be kind,

and you forgot to be patient,

and in between figuring out who you were,

and where you came from,

and why you were here,

the clouds of life,

poured on you,

and your heart cried with the rain…

but,

when it was over,

and though the world did not change,

you felt lighter and soul felt cleansed,

and you noticed the smiles among the frowns,

and drenched in what was your pain,

you found that little piece of joy again,

you followed the rainbow of life.

3.) It is okay to be happy and to follow your dreams.

Today I am happy
chasing puddles
of the light heart…
splashing water
on my dreams
waking them to life…

Today I am happy
drifting away…
on the moonbeam
of hope
along sunshine
on forgotten meadows

doing nothing…

but chasing puddles
of the light heart
splashing water
on my dreams
waking them to life
today, I am happy.

4.) It’s okay to love and be grateful for what you have

In my attempt,

to get away from here

to find solace…

I found myself, grateful,

for all the love,

that surrounds me.

5.) It is okay to pray and to find the light in your heart amidst darkness and to find hope with each dawn.

Let me find hope…

In the gentlest of whispers,

which stops the  loudest of screams,

in the deepest of love,

where my heart can lean,

and find its way back from the darkest nights,

as I lay my mind, on the first morning light…

let me find hope.

Reflections

The day unfolded

quietly

as your mind drifted

full of distractions

a blatant contrast

to the serene light that fell on you

as you laid out your thoughts

bare

open like the skies

infinite with possibilities

of going anywhere…

but as the light faded into darkness

and the night sang the soft lullaby

you drifted again

to the beginning

or was it the end…

in the circle of life.
