I Do Not Stand Alone

img_2034

I do not stand alone
I stand with all that is behind me
I stand with what is yet to come
I stand with how they have defined me
I stand with all that I have won
I stand with strength that I have earned
I stand with love I have received
I stand with faith that I have kept
I stand with what I have believed
I stand with heart
I stand with soul
I stand with what it is I AM
I do not stand alone

Complacent

Salvador Dali's The Melting Watch
Salvador Dali’s The Melting Watch

Here I am, complacent
Watching others chasing dreams
With a curious inclination
Did they wait for all lights to turn green?

Here I am, complacent
Day to night, night to day
Is my purpose not so blatant?
Did I lose my way?

Here I am, complacent
Wondering should I take the plunge?
Is it fear that holds me impatient?
Should I just stop and lunge?

Here I am, complacent
Not complacent, just obsessed.
The universe knows intention
Note to self: TRUST THE PROCESS.

Your Song

Well Conducted Cello by Suzanne Clark
Well Conducted Cello by Suzanne Clark

What is the song you’re playing?
What are the lyrics saying?

What’s the rhythm of your tune?
What’s the sound of the croon?

Does it sound like summer days?
Does it sound like nights you pray?

Does it sound like falling rain?
Does it sound like deep pain?

Does it make you feel enamored?
Does it make you feel inspired?

Does it leave you feeling sad?
Does it leave you feeling mad?

Does it make you forget troubles?
Does it make you remember struggles?

What is the song you’re playing?
What are the lyrics saying?

Invite me in for me to hear
That heart of yours, it has my ear.

The Light

Inside of me there’s a light that lives

A lantern to light the way

A soothing warmth it always gives

The speaker when I pray

Some assume there’s nothing there

but not everyone can see

The things I have, the clothes I wear

It’s the light, that defines me

For those of you who care to know

This light inside of me

Look in my heart, and I will show

How it was born to be

So for now, I sing out loud

 “This little light of mine”

Continue on, walking unbowed

“I’m gonna let it shine”

Inside of me there’s a light that lives

“Do you have one too?”

A warm hello and my love I give

To the light inside of you
