See the transformation,
The change before the change.
The metamorphosis which will be,
When it’s the true you, you embrace.

Her ethereal existence,
Whisper of your tomorrow upon today.
Awaiting the steps of your journey,
Starting with one, your courage displayed.

You’ve been afraid to discover,
What’s destined to be yours.
Truths hidden by layers of facades,
Authenticity masked, hope obscured.

But I see her. Wings unveiled.
Through the hardships and mistakes.
To the light that already is,
And a dawn that waits to break…

Wishing her beauty in self discovery upon her journey.

Let It Go…

A day of could have beens
Of should have beens
Of would have beens

A day of was nots
Of not meant to be’s
Of just didn’t happens

This truth can never be covered up.
Can never be changed.
Can never be reversed.
Never be wished away.

Mourn the loss
But don’t lose right now
Move forward
It’ll be okay somehow

Just around the bend
Mysteries of future steps
Await your courage

Paths…

Image

We step forward, sure footed

Confidence in tact

Perhaps confidence originates

Because due consideration we lack

 

Wind blowing swiftly through our hair

Leaping from one stone to the next

Eyes closed while in flight

No cautious resistance

 

Springing forward with ease

Only to fall upon the uncertain stones

The very ones in which we trusted

To lead us in the way to things unknown

 

The crash is powerful

The solid blows leave their marks

And for various lengths of time we sit

Questioning our strength to restart

 

Perhaps we should have taken

The road blanketed in pebbles

The gentle sandy path

Or the ground paved with petals

 

Would each one have taken us

To the same destination?

Did we even have a choice

Of which path to step out in

 

At times the terrain is unknown

Until that first step forward

Sensory cues cumbersomely surround

Contributing to a lack of order

 

If we had taken time at journey’s onset

To plan for the days travel

To pack all supplies needed

To enable us in battle

What would we bring

What plans would we make

How would we go about recovering

From likely mistakes

 

How long does the path which lies behind

Remain and allow for our retreat

Does the trail from which we came

Cushion our now bruised feet

 

The path backwards deep into the past is an illusion

A black abyss lined with imaginary stair cases

Steps have the solidarity of a dream

We walk each one in traces
