In Plain Sight

I keep looking around, trying to find something.
I know it is here somewhere...
Then I realize...
It is right here...
All that I need is with me and has always been there...

'Nuff said

"Love transcends location and situation"
As I wrote I knew that it was true
I said this to another friend
It struck me out of the blue

No matter where you go my love
Nor what we say or do
The simple fact is all my life
Has has led to something new

I know right now the circumstance
Has split our paths in two
But surely as the winds do dance
They'll blow me back to you

Life does not often bend to our will. More often than not we are the ones doing the bending. I believe that there is a purpose, a guiding hand, that weaves the tapestry of our lives. I know that those same hands will guide us in the right direction if we will only let them.

Emerging from Sorrow

All at once it strikes
No matter how well you have girded yourself
You can't avoid the spikes
And all your defenses and joy are put upon the shelf

The weight of the things around you
Responsibilities, duties, promises
All these things accost and pierce right through
And you retreat as if in some spiritual demise

Then you remember, real success is not based on how little you fall
But how often you rise again
At the end of the siege you are standing tall
And you face your life and sing a new refrain

You are the person you believe you are
Nobel, loving, courageous, and strong
You can survive the journey no matter how far
I have valor, I am worthy, I AM; this, this is my victory

There are times when I feel so completely out of control. Just when I think I have everything in order, a series of events come along to try and destroy my world. I retreat, regroup, and redouble my resolve. I will not fade away into some dark oblivion, I will shine.
