Fleeting

Here’s the thing….
The feeling is fleeting.
That darkness we fall to.
Keeping us.
It’s not.
Make it another minute.
Let go.
So we may realize
The sun will set to give way to another sunrise.
Every day, Every time.
The feeling is fleeting.
It will come….and then it will go.
Just make it another minute.

“What the Caterpillar Calls the End, the Rest of the World Calls a Butterfly” – Lao Tzu

A final piece Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life . 

Evolving. A seed becomes a tree. The ocean becomes rain. We become a heartbeat. It all begins, ends, and evolves into another life of its own.

Once a seed breaks through darkness, it reaches for the light and grows.

Once the ocean welcomes the sunrise, it lifts itself towards the light and celebrates the meeting of air and water.

Once the mother labors, the heartbeat is born into the light to grace it with its presence.

On the other side of darkness, lives the light. On the other side of an ending, lives a new beginning. And whatever WE call the end, may very well be a beautiful evolving into a new beginning.

 

Deep Seeded

A seed was planted long ago
Watered by the thinking
Some resentments hard to let go
Giving this seed living
Guiding its growth to the light
Pulled back by the darkness
Ego, hate, and selfish pride
Keeping this seed heartless
Time to go back to its roots
Find out what it needs
If we want to bear good fruit
Love and accept this seed.

Judge Me

Judge the way I grow
Judge the way I shine
Judge me by my lack of grace
Judge my spoken mind
Judge the way I love
Judge me by my silence
Judge the way I lose myself
Judge all of my defiance

None of me is for you
When you judge
You judge you too

“Lose Some To Win Some…Story of a Champion” – Jay Z

Written for and Published in The Seeds 4 Life.

A champion. Someone to be admired. Usually a master at their craft and usually, that’s when we notice them – when they have mastered their craft.

We do not see the trial and errors. We do not see the failures. We do not see the 1000 times they fell and the 1001 times they got back up.

And before that 1001 times they got back up? Still a Champion. Because a Champion earns their badge by failing and trying again. They earn their badge by moving forward, using what happened yesterday as a PUSH towards their goal.  They do not sit idle waiting, they sit to REST when they need to.

A champion. In every struggle, in every failure. We get back up. Earn our badge. And still a Champion.
