Learning to Fall

Like the baby bird that falls out of the nest

We must first learn to fall before we can fly.

There have been many times that I have fallen

Only to learn to grow wings to fly.

I have fallen from the nest and soared high above

Only to come back and realize that it is my

Falling that is what taught me to fly.

The falling part is the scariest part

To overcome. But to feel the exhilaration of flight,

And know that I can land on my feet,

That is the… Continue

Echoes of Light

In times of darkness,

or just when things are sad life

seems to have no meaning or maybe very little.

But it is in times like this when your heart

And mind need to stay open and listen.

Through the screaming of the darkness,

We can heal the echoes of light,

That when we are closed we often miss.

The echoes of light come and remind us

That in the screaming of the darkness,

You’ll find the blissful sound of silence.

The silence that we… Continue

No One Notices

No one notices the screams of chaos,

Dogs barking, loud music, racing cars,

And loud people.

No one notices the serenity of nature

As she chirps her songs through the

Crickets and toads.

No one notices her whispers

In the dead of night.

In all the chaos of the city

She is still loud enough

To make her voices heard.

They are faint but if you listen

Hard enough you can hear.

You can hear and find

Serenity in the screaming… Continue

I wished Upon a Star

The last time I wished upon a star,

All my dreams came true and

Even more than I wished for.

If I knew what I was in for

I never would’ve wished for hell,

Or for a new life.

In those years I was lucky

I was not stabbed with a knife

Or done away with one strike.

To every day waking up

At the fear of death breathing

Down your neck.

To feel as though the grim reaper

Followed your every footstep.

To stare Satan in the… Continue

My Fault

It’s my fault I made him mad.
It’s my fault he drank.
It’s my fault because I wished on that stupid star.
It’s my fault that mom’s not so tolerant.
Why do I feel so guilty?
Why do I have to live with my faults?
Why do we live like this?
I miss life.
I would give anything to have it back!

My Awakening

I am tearing down my walls,

And breaking chains from the fears

That have clouded and scorched my world

That has kept me in my hell

My spirit has awaken, traveling the world,

Now I run with the antelope

I chase the butterflies of change

And swim in the healing waters of rebirth.

I soar with the eagle

Across the crisp clear sun filled sky.

I lay in a world of everlasting beauty.

My visions repainting themselves with

Lush and lavishing… Continue

Lord of My Dreams

I walk along the sandy beaches of my dreams listening to God’s voice in the wind. Whispering softly, ‘You are home.’ I feel the caress of the oceans lapping waves. The waves so calm and serene they seem inviting. I close my eyes and feel hands upon my shoulders and a voice in my ear. ‘Now is the time…dive in.’ A voice so soft, it left me feeling lighter than air.

I walk stealth fully into the crystal tide and as I get deeper in the waves, my body begins to glow and fill with a deep… Continue

The Gift

Six years of hell, six years of pain

He that did it, as a sick and twisted mind game

So many names, so many hurts,

So many wounds, so many tears

He that did it spat on us like dirt.

So much noise, so much fear

So much blood, so many restless nights

He that did it loved to fight.

So much pressure, I couldn’t hold it in

Every day I confessed my sins

When my teacher saw the pain I was in

She said “Tell me about it”

I said “Where do I… Continue

In my life there have been more tears and fears

That I would never wish on another soul

I won’t write you a script with a happy ending

I won’t silence the pain that I’ve held onto so tightly

Let me show you my pain, my struggles

That will make you cry

That will make you angry

That will make you wonder how I came to be.

My journey into the darkness

That has made me a beacon of light.

Let me show you the horrors and miracles of humanity

Let… Continue
