Day 215: Where I’m Meant To Be

On rocky purchases,
with bended knees,
try to ride the
falling Earth.

Catch my breath,
only to be thrown again,
soundless strikes
of thunder before me.

Past this storm,
lies promises of
paradise found.

Peaceful moments
of life unbound,
centred in the
waves of time.

The path I walked
crumbling behind me,
the place I stand
dissolving beneath me,
the storm in its glory,
flashing before me.

I am where I
belong, when
time and story
has drawn me
near.

Day 201: Finding Your Way

When you are left wondering what your life’s lot is,
do you surrender to the force of nature that you fought?

Is there a grand master plan, to explain your path
or merely a great illusion created to control your wrath?

If reality stems from some divine being glorious dream,
do I need to stop and wake you midstream?

Instead, were life created by my will and my choices,
let me surround my heart with other loud voices.

Build a fort from the stones of cast my way,
a place where I know, I will be okay.

Retreat, recover, heal and pray,
let my soul lead me astray.

Find the road I should be walking,
Rather than just sitting here talking.

Day 61: Still

In the stillness
I found you,
The girl I thought
I lost.

Past the white noise
Of dictated lives,
Stagnant placeholders.

The vision blinded by walls of
Who, what, when and how
Questions with fixed answers.

Stop uttering meaningless answers,
With recycled words and promises,
Fearful of the silence.

Look for the fragrance of life,
Hidden in the dead space
Of a reality that just in.

Instead, warm the touch,
Of a heart that is ready
To find its natural rhythm.

In this stillness,
I was reborn,
In the stillness
I found myself.
