Within

The sun begins to set
the light begins to fade
and darkness starts to fill the skies.

She stands there overlooking the horizon
wondering as to how she believed her own lies.

She drops to her knees and looks up at the heavens
it is now dark, like the veil over her eyes.
Temporarily blind and desperately seeking the light.

Her hands dig into the ground in attempt to gather strength
but the dirt sifts through her fingers and back onto the earth again.
She cries out in desperation, in hopes of receiving an answer
She hears nothing but her own whisper, “All I want is love”.

Her mind tells her she isn’t ready but she insists she is.

Her mind replies with this:

“Look at yourself and tell me what do you see.
Look at yourself and see how you’re crumbling.
Desperate for love but failing to see..
that the one who needs love, is your own body.
It’s not that you need anyone else,
what you need is to focus on yourself.

Become the word that you breathe,
Become the vision that you see.
Nobody can lift the veil from your eyes
besides the will that you have inside.
A solid foundation must be layed before anything can be built,
cracks and broken pieces will only cause you to wilt.

As your mind, I can guide you and make you see
but I can’t make you take the step, if you are not willing.
We are all one, yet we are three…
Your body, your mind, and your soul were all crafted so perfectly.
We all work together yet we are all moving parts
a beautiful masterpiece, surely a work of art
You can’t take care of one without minding the other,
the key is to balance each other.
Love yourself and all that you are,
when Life feels you are ready you will be amongst the stars.
Your soul will not leave you until your mind and body have learned,
their lesson on this beautiful earth.

Look for strength within and you will then realize,
that love has always been there.. waiting for you to find.”

She stands up and sees the sun starting to rise,
slowly she begins to see the light.

She whispers to herself, “There you are, I can finally see.
I’ve looked everywhere for you, besides inside of me.”

Peaceful journey

Our journey through life is unique yet interconnected.
We might experience different events but ultimately they teach us the same lesson.
Everyone has their own interpretation of life,
but in the end we are all just trying to survive.
Our mind is so complex yet so simple,
we often miscontrue things and make things more difficult.
If everyone realized that we are all in this together,
perhaps we’d stop fighting and pursue much peaceful endeavors.
