The curtain is rich and deep,
Hiding the gears and works behind.
The players on stage taking action,
Flowing for love, loss, triumph and tragedy.
All given meaning by the stage,
Never knowing the audience watching.
The wall between a veil of exploration,
Creating space that the curtain takes.
Knowing that the curtain will fall,
Gives the players reason to be,
To create light before the dark.
Snap, twist, groan, thaw,
The tension eases itself,
Spring life from absence.
Knowledge then wisdom,
Experience leads to awareness,
New space for growth to flow.
Tearing is pain foolishly chosen,
Let go to find peace,
Walk away to find freedom.
My energy was changed by what happened,
I was affected in a way I didn’t understand,
Hurt and changed in a way I couldn’t process.
I am strong now to see it through,
I accept what is and what was,
I can transcend this effect to heal myself.
The cycle has been observed,
The repetitions of the trauma recognized,
The shadow self is angry and hurt no more.
The true self has recognized the memories,
Trapped beneath the surface of my reality,
I am what will be and become what is.
It’s never going to be perfect,
It’s not going to all make sense at once,
It drags, it pulls,
The habit of what was.
Free to connect with the energy beyond,
Carrying it into the world around,
A rainbow of emotion and sensation,
Pain is just a teacher.
Love what is possible,
Delight in what’s real,
Accept through humility,
Shine with pride.
The fall, the rise
Shine through the night
I am the strength, the light
Ever last, outlast
Before and beyond
After and always
Free in morning.
Connecting with the true self,
Following our own path,
Speaking truth with efficacy,
Loving wisely and powerfully,
Respecting self and others,
Imagining creatively and feeling gently,
Surviving with rigour and force
Bring balance to live well,
Apply energy to the right centres,
Never wrongly to the incorrect centre,
Lest pain is what is sought
a natural evolution
going against apparent instinct
connecting with the true path
limit pain by walking forward
look to where you walk
not getting distracted looking elsewhere
not hating yourself
not hating what is necessary
The hardest journey to walk
is the one that leads from within
to do is easy
to move is natural
to find love in everything is divine
Life was presented as a challenge,
rising with the ebbs and flows of joy
Love is always there to be sought,
no matter the slaps and pain,
no matter the rise and fall.
Allow others the opportunity to make amends
seek forgiveness for our own trespasses
Find the path with love, discomfort and no pain
for this life is a gift.
they have a momentum
good ones build to great things
bad ones lead to strife
select the best ones for a good life
Boom, crack, hiss …
the surface is washed
branches are broken
pathways are cleared
connections are destroyed
new growth blossoms afterwards .
there is no more pure expression of self
belonging to ourselves first and foremost
who is chosen, matters as much the act
it can be an expression of self love
without loving the other side, it will be less
seeking the whole expression is beautiful
some have been taken without consent
it robs the self of identity and meaning
there is always a path to true love
