believing

Beliefs are powerful. I find myself sifting through my beliefs and challenging my self to examine how those beliefs inform my life.

Belief.

What are four beliefs that stir up hope and faith for you? ( This question is for me)

I have observed some rather disturbing things in society this week.

I am choosing to believe that we are more than this negativity, division, and hate and that all this darkness will lead us to the light that exists within us and around us.

Older Lady Fresh

Clarity made it clear

She was clairvoyant

Her energy, her thoughts made her buoyant

Rage at her age could cause heart attacks

So she saught peace and facts

Usually she drove that old Cadillac

Sunglasses hid her gaze

Even on dark daze

Effortlessly she flowed through each moon phase

Her energy her thoughts made her buoyant

She was clarivoyant

Clarity made it clear

 

 

 

 

 

Black hot

Snow drifted down melting on my melanin – it never had a chance

My inner light fire bright and strong third eyesight

Melting obstacles just like that snow

Each trial an opportunity to grow

Snow drifted down melting on my melanin – it never had a chance

Burn it Down Beautiful | It’s a New Year

Expectation burned hot on the back of my throat

Melted away intentionally with the Vick’s like vapors of optimism and blind faith I rubbed all over myself

It was time to heal and to believe in something more

Something real

Ambition radiated off my being

Anticipation of the new days and adventures to come wake me up earlier and keep me up later

The last few embers of the burning expectation give way to the warm coming of new words

New worlds

I am lit and this is only the beginning

 

 

 

Golden Solitude

Secluded she sang songs to herself
Each note took her higher and higher while somehow grounding her to earthly reality
Quiet is something you can feel
Secluded and safe she bathed in silence
Nothing about silence felt empty
Whole she felt
The transmutation of loneliness to golden solitude
She found her everything in silence
Purpose
Focus
Heaven
Secluded she sang songs to herself
Songs of love
Love of all that was
Love of all there is
Love of all that will be
Each note her little boat
On the river of calm and clarity
Secluded she sang songs

Heart/Home

Home is where the heart is

Stop

Take 3 deep breaths and put your hand on your chest

Home is where the heart is and your heart is in your body

The temple of your body is your home

How are you taking care of your home?

Have you prayed in the temple for your temple?

Home Home

Home is where your heart beats

Where your nerves and brain meet

Heart Heart

Heart is where your home is

[found this in an email to myself from 2014]

She rode thru old spaces
Thinking of all those places
The words that fell from faces
Their weight had held her down
Horrified that she would drown
She now realized that  fight she fought
And the fucked up shit it brought
Those actions were the offspring of fear
Amanayea came with the light & made it clear
Fear is Darkness meddling in your mind
Awakened to Truth she put fear’s ass in line
She refused to focus on the fuckedupness of life
the constant replaying of perceived strife
She rode thru old spaces
Thinking of all those places
The words that fell from faces
They were never holding her down-
They were building her up so she could wear the crown
