Dystopian Nightmare

When the day faded away to night
I can’t resist the evening lullaby
Carrying me on a cloud to a dream
To the land of a tempest nightmare
Or one of Elysian waterfalls

I find myself on a cold desolate island
Where I feel emptiness of abandoned life
Fear begins to hold my heart hostage
As I relapse in darkness of being alone
Surrounded by the perfect storm

I can’t tell if this is a test or prophecy
Either way I refuse to let fear hold my heart
Then the skies cleared in an instant
Revealing a hot air balloon ready for me
Departing to traverse the moon lit skies

 

Fear And Love Quote

” There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ”

-John Lennon

Living And Dying

whiteflower

Every second of every minute our bodies are dying

No use thinking otherwise or to ourselves we would be lying

Live every moment like it is our very last

A most valued lesson hidden of life we find out when we become the past

To live is not just to sit and breathe in the air

Sitting comfortably numb in our soft padded chairs

To never go outside because of our fear and anxiety of the unexpected

Feeling that death is around the corner and we have been selected

There is so much life to live just waiting for you and me

All it takes is just to let go of what we cannot control to set ourselves free

Giving ourselves to living life the way we choose

There is more to gain in this life than there is to lose

We all have the power to stop time in moments in our lives

Moments that give us clarity and the moments that we see our loved ones thrive

The moments of personal triumph to basking in the light of love for the first time

All these valuable moments and more we experience without spending a single dime

It’s time to step outside with open minds and hearts full of pride with heads held high

Death will come for us someday but until that day comes we will no longer hide

Surreal

stream

Walking along side a tranquil stream

I start to realize things are not what they seem

Then I notice something that catches my eye

Being in the woods I realize everything is alive

I look in the direction of what has caught my attention

I see nothing but the trees and natures sounds from all directions

Being aware now I feel gazing eyes prying down upon me

Everywhere at once I feel a presence of something I do not see

I keep walking cautious with every step I take

Sounds of breaking leaves and branches with every move I make

Beams of sunlight illuminating through the cracks of the trees

Lighting up the forest with the soft glow of colors to be seen

I stop to a perfect stillness something like a trance

Being in awe of what I am feeling paralyzed in my stance

I watch life around me unfold in front of my very eyes

No longer hiding timid in natures masterful disguise

Butterflies fluttering around me some landing on my skin

The gentle subtle touch has instantly warmed my heart within

I realize at this moment what is happening

I am being embraced by love with fear no longer entrapping me

My heart pleads with my mind for this to be real

Then I wake in my bed with memories of a dream surreal

A Place Of Unity Poem

Living together in harmony as one,

love is the currency and fears are none,

What a magnificent place this would be,

To see former predators living tranquilly,

Helping and giving is normalcy like breathing air,

Nobody is living with poverty, grief and despair,

There is no such thing as drought or famine,

Not even the thunder of a loud destructive cannon,

A place like this we may never get to see,

As long as greed rules there will be no place of unity for you and me.

Positivity Quote

 “People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action.”

– Steve Maraboli

Fear Quote

” Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past, I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. “

-Frank Herbert
