What You Do To You….

Some people want to learn a wound
To help it heal
Some people want to learn a wound
To dig in with steel
Some people want to learn a heart
To love it better
Some people want to learn a heart
To make it shatter
Some people want to learn a mind
To lay in its meadows
Some people want to learn a mind
To exploit its shadows
Some people want to learn a spirit
To embrace its light
Some people want to learn a spirit
To dim its bright

Whichever “some people” you may be
You do to “you” what you do to “me”

Harvest

We can lie to save some feelings
We can say and never do
We can go without intention
We can be what is not true
Here’s the thing with what we can
Actions have a consequence
All decision have an outcome
Every day leads to the next one
Harvest seasons come and go
But, what we reap is what we sow

Shadow

The shadow side
Is part of us
The side one may not see
Just like the moon
We show the world
The face we choose to be
And as the light
Shines on this face
That hides this shadow side
Remember when we
Meet the other
Where our depths reside

Learning Curve

What is life without a lesson?
A mindless journey without progression?
Maybe it’s just ignorant bliss?
With nothing to ponder, nothing to miss?
Or maybe it’s just floating in air
Without a worry, without a care?
Whatever it is, I’d rather not know.
A tree needs water for it to grow
It needs some rain, some wind, some light
To grow deep roots, to reach new heights.
Sometimes lessons may feel heavy
Try to teach when you’re not ready
But wise lessons are always there
To give this tree wisdom to bare
Pay attention what it brings
It’s in the journey a new chapter begins
