Close to the ocean. Hearing the waves.
Loving the peace. Choosing to be a hand that saves.
While I cannot do everything.
I can do what allows my heart to sing.
We cannot save what refuses to change.
We cannot force truth on the deranged.
The move towards awareness has nothing to do.
With the paths that others point them through.
People make promises so they can command.
People love to define boundaries and demand.
I know that everyone does exactly what they want.
And egos love to show off and flagrantly flaunt.
What they think they know and how special they are.
When they are only one of billions of stars.
Letting go … even more with time.
Age is a blessing that changes the paradigm.
We learn that what was so important to our mind.
Was another exercise in learning to be kind.
There are so many that we cannot get past their defenses.
They lash out and continue to build fences.
And then they wonder why they are alone.
When they build barricades and continue to bemoan.
Everyone has had those moments when things did not go their way.
And everyone has had to pick themselves up from all the dismay.
Emotional moments, even if they last a long time.
Are always about a past that causes them to pine.
Pine for what they think they were supposed to become.
When they do not see that a particular outcome.
Was not what the universe had in mind.
There was another path if they were willing to climb.
Climb out of that hole that they can’t seem to get out of.
While angels give them encouragement from up above.
In the end it is up to us.
Stay in the hole and bemoan the dust.
Or make a choice and decide to not wait.
Crawl out of the hole and leap through that gate.
A life awaits beyond the hope that already died.
There is a life that awaits just outside.
But we have to make a choice that is about a deeper work.
Because every life is really a patchwork
Within the quilt that is our life.
Are tears and threads broken from strife.
We all are going to have to learn to mend.
All the broken parts so we learn to bend.
Life it not about making a perfect quilt.
It is about learning that all things can be rebuilt.
