The Sound Of Silence

I hear you in the dead of night
As I do in the life of the day
Even during playful howling winds
My thoughts are taken far far away

Words fade away upon muted ears
Music dwindles down to a soft tone
Energy rises from my awakening core
The greatest feeling I have ever known

My thirst is forever quenched
In still waters that run so deep
Drowning in the sound of silence
Only these waters I can truly breathe

No Longer Blind

Sitting under the shade of the willow tree
Listening to the gentle waves push ashore
Inhaling deeply of the life that surrounds
Of this life I could not ask for more

The sun glistens off the skin of the lake
Clouds roll changing the waters complexion
My life is defined in this moment of bliss
As the lotus inside begins its resurrection

My heart opens like flowers in spring
Reaching for the light for first time
Encapsulated in the auras of life
My sight is clear and no longer blind

 

Everything Is Within

” There is nothing outside of yourself that can ever enable you to get better, stronger, richer, quicker, or smarter. Everything is within. Everything exists. Seek nothing outside of yourself. “

-Miyamoto Musashi

 

Drum Of Courage

 

As I walk down the halls of darkness
Blind and unsure of where it will lead
All I have is the beat of my drum
So I march to where I cannot see

The cold whispers of fear warn me
Telling me to go back where I came
The drum beat urges me to move on
Even if I will never be the same

Throughout the sleepless eternal nights
I walk even when I feel I can’t go on
This dark path was meant to break me
Beat me down until I am withered and gone

I fall to my knees in a puddle of tears
Awaiting the reaper to take me away
I hear the drum loudly from my heart
Reminding me of this path I must stay

Finally I see the end of the darkness
Fallen cherry blossoms gather at my feet
I’ve come to the end of my journey
My legs feeling tired and very weak

The strength I needed was hidden inside
In the darkness I had it all along
It was the drum of courage
That kept me marching to its song

 

Our Dreams

our dreams are the light
the star we hold so dear
hope in its very essence
the truth whispered in our ear

it’s the pinnacle of our destiny
the hardest goal to grasp
our first flame of desire
the earnest wish in our past

let the seed of our dreams grow
it will ripen with patience and time
our hearts will beat of the purset love
as we watch our dreams rise and shine

 

A World Within

I swim in the ocean of my deepest depths
encapsulated in the tranquility of its touch
ensnared in the rapture of peaceful bliss
the calming silence I missed so much

thoughts disperse into abyssal waters
sands of time shatter into eternal stars
my soul glows of a love so ethereal
looking within we find a world that is ours

Road Trip

roadtripThe burden of everyday life begins to shed its
weight the farther I drive down the road as
the hypnotic tunnel of fog dissipates
to a vision more clearer

The white noise is replaced by sounds of piano
keys playing softly in the car creeping in
seductively in a melody my heart
wistfully mirrors

Miles and miles of driving everywhere and nowhere
brought a peace to my soul silencing the
chaos of my restless mind

The serenity of the open road lays the foundation
of a life so simple giving anxiety a rest
as my eyes soak in the surreal
tranquility that helps
me unwind

I can feel the lotus growing inside as my spirit
begins its transformation into the renewal
of life embracing a path to places
I have never been

Whenever I find myself lost in the fog of life
I will always know where to go to
find myself again
