Reward: The Life He Lives

IMG_20180415_113851

Life’s uncertain dance seems no more luck than chance. So a gambler rolls the dice in his hand, hoping to find the promised land. Each loss is a lessons pain and each win shows a lessons gain. This is the cost he must pay for the life he lives.

The sunny days warming light touches his eye and he realizes it was worth every day he had to cry. The rains will always return a new just to remind him of what it’s like to feel blue. This is the cost he must pay for the life he lives.

As he understands this cycle that helps to lift, he watches the stars dance around appreciations gift. All settles into ease as he sits with the breeze and considers all he sees. A calm knowledge of torments worry allows him to remove it from his story. This is the reward for the life he lives.

Power Arises Within

I found inspiration during a recent hardship. It was so overwhelming and powerful I’m not sure how to transcribe how it happens or the sensations associated with it. I do know internally, from the innermost of the inner, there is a power that needed to be released. This poem was the release.

An Unseen Melody

I say yes,

You say no.

I say happy,

You say sad.

I say easy,

You say hard.

 

You say yes,

I say no.

You say happy,

I say sad.

You say easy,

I say hard.

 

This is beauty,

A circles reunion.

Created with difference

Ever infinite

 

I say I love you,

You say not today.

I say I want you,

You say stay away.

 

You say I love you,

I say as I do you.

You say I want you,

I say I want you too.

 

This is the surest way,

Keeping the flowers out.

This is the roughest way,

Harboring the dark of night.

 

Look at your perspective,

Which way do you go?

Look at your direction,

What do you see?

 

I say I love you,

You say as I do you.

I say I want you,

You say I want you too.

 

You say I love you,

I say as I do you.

You say I want you,

I say I want you too.

 

This is loves gift,

A circles completion.

If each sees,

The outstretched arm.

The flower will bloom,

Under a rainbows glow.

 

I say yes,

You say no.

I say happy,

You say sad.

I say easy,

You say hard.

 

You say yes,

I say no.

You say happy,

I say sad.

You say easy,

I say hard.
