Frame me in this

Life lingers there, within reach
To be invented, formed
Bent into reality

Create a masterpiece, a work of art
And stand there in the middle

Taking charge everything’s within your grasp
To dream is to believe
For it all to happen

Strength and courage build power
Build character, build you

The bad pushes buttons
A test of character

Worn out roads are hard to travel
Seeing only the path less chosen
Navigate past to clarity

It’s important to see, you’re right where you need to be
Acknowledge what’s really there
Looking beyond the emotions floating around

Truth is some things will get worse before they get better
Trying your tired soul, and aching body
Other things only get better

Listen and learn
Act and care
Never loosing yourself

Take stress and handle it bit by bit
Stay away from the gray, it will eat you alive

Speak truths, sincerity
It’s hard to find

It will all come
To emerge from black
Spring loaded surprise

One moment takes shape
With each days break

Lifes Edge

Standing at the end, rocks trap her feet. Tall spindly grass scales the cliff side in a desperate search of a hospitable home. Below, all is still. Framed into a photograph of no action, she remains. Sturdy and tough, her body like a boulder. Looking out into an endless horizon, she feels pulled away from where she thinks she belongs.

The waters calm and serene, almost winking at her, enticing her, testing her will to choose her own path.

She ponders life. Dreams the impossible. But tires her soul.

Time ticks away as she stands still. Questioning right/ wrong, morals and beliefs; hesitant to make a move... when nothings ever perfect.

Change affects everything around her. Her environment begins a magical metamorphosis.

The wind carries in a sweet nectar as the wave crash through peace. Yet silence persists.

Dividing Worlds Collide Again

Connecting us to each other
It’s become a tool that pushes everyone further away

Words of kindness, praise, and love, have no voice
Letters in fine print speak no emotion

A world of vast advances encourages seclusion through encrypted messages

Intended to make life easier and that is has.
But left us with no ability to communicate true words… emotion, compassion and care

So immersed in individualized worlds
So much goes unsaid.

These worlds need to collides, touch
To remind the truth to exist

Holding on to the now, ready for what’s next but keeping human touch

To feel safe, whole
To remember how to socialize and love one another

… when our worlds collide.
