“Into The Forest I Go…

…to lose my mind and find my soul…”
To take my heart to nature’s beat
To soothe my eyes and deeply breathe.
To give my ears to singing birds
To silence thoughts and spoken words
To feel the sun through canopy’s dome
To give my soul a place to call home.


Strong with the pain
Strong with the tears
Strong with release
Of all haunting fears

Strong with the love
Strong with the faith
Strong with the certainty
Of life’s flow of change

Strong with the gratitude
Strong with the giving
Strong with the promise
For the soul to keep on living

They say….

They say you grew big from a seed
Planted here, kind of like me
They say you swam in darkness a while
Listening to a heartbeat, can you hear mine?
They say you took your first breath and cried
Not of sadness but to express your might
They say you see this world with wonder
With a curious heart and much left to ponder
What they do not say, is what you will become
My hope…
someone who knows, you and I, are one.
