A Life to Have

What do we tell ourselves.
As our world crumbles.
It crumbles around our feet.
As it crashes and burns.

How do we live in this.
This place that doesn't exist.
A people no longer real.
Make belief in this made up book.

Who do we turn to.
Who is there to trust.
How do we steady our feet.
On the rubble and debris.

It falls around us like ash.
How do you piece together.
The shards are too small.
For life you no longer have.

How do we turn back time.
What switch do we flip.
Among so many choices.
Somewhere we got lost.

Where's the door.
The key to unlock the answer.
For what lies behind surely.
Is the way to rebuild.

It's there, beyond.
Just out of reach.
All you have to do is fight.
For the life you should have.

Fight for the knowledge of good.
Keep running towards a destination.
Not far now.
You're there.

Music of the Soul

Watch your soul lift with every movement.
Hear the notes on each string.
Feel the vibrato in every pass.
Touching a place deep in your heart.

Watch the feet as they lightly step.
Hear the silence of grace in motion.
Feel the joy that spirals within.
Touching the edges of vibrant beauty.

Watch as the instrument flies like a kite.
Hear the song as it soars the sky.
Feel as it caresses you like the wind.
Touching down to your own soul.

Thoughts on a Dreary Day

Ah! The comfort of warm weather has left us and the bite of the cold has made its way to stay for awhile. Perhaps we got to use to the warmth, that this chill is being un-welcomed. I'm sure you all know how much I love winter, but this 'in between' weather is enough to drive a soul insane, or perhaps only mine. They say that from today onward we are not to see anything above 50 degrees. I was rather hoping for at least one more week of warmth. I have my final exam to take this week and I have to massage a horse in the chilly weather. Good news for the horse! My poor fingers on the other hand... (no pun intended) LoL.

 Yes, I am already taking my final exam for my Equine Massage Therapy program. I am excited and yet a ball of nerves, although I really don't need to be. Yah willing everything will go well. I was telling a friend the other day that I am happy to be able to accomplish yet another goal on my list. My first goal was to publish my book of poems, which I accomplished last year in the spring. My second goal was to become a Equine Massage Therapist, Yah willing it will happen soon. I have yet to figure out a third goal, but I'm sure given some time, I'll being moving toward it before long. I just praise Yah that he finds a way for me to accomplish my hearts desires. I get these wild thoughts and ideas that I want to do something 'out there', but I am somehow able to accomplish these small dreams. So I guess some of the wisdom that I would love to impart to those who might read this. Never let the fear of failure keep you from charging after your dreams. Yahuwah gives us a gift to share with others and it is our goal to unlock and pursue it.

 I am in pursuit of saving money to purchase a new horse come spring. I know I'll never be able to find a horse to replace Bud, but maybe I'll be able to build a new bond with another. I am excited at the thought of having a horse again and I would love to have one now, but I know I need to be patient and let time heal before I open up a place for a new furry friend. As much as I never want to feel a loss like that, it is bound to happen in all our lives and we must strengthen for those times and cherish the moments we do have. At least I have my trusty side kick Matty (my cat) to keep me company and make up for the gap. I also enjoy watching Po (my fish) ...although I think my mom and secretly my dad enjoy watching him as well.

 My brother, sis-in-law, niece and nephew are all in Wisconsin right now. I must say I am having withdraws from seeing both my niece and nephew. I don't know if I've ever gone 10 days without seeing them. Shocking, I know! Okay, most of you would probably think it crazy to have never gone that long, but when they live so close and we see them almost every day, its hard to adjust, LoL. Heaven knows what happens if they move or Yah knows, I actually get married and I don't see them for weeks or months at a time. Hopefully that doesn't happen any time soon, ^_^  Although they are both growing up so quick, its amazing to watch them blossom into their personalities. They both have so much personality and they love to get into mischief like most kids, but they are really good kids. I can't wait until I'll be able to take them out riding and such.

Well, I've bored you all enough. I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. Enjoy the incoming cold and stay warm. Please pray for those in need on the East Coast, they are all in great need.

Know You not I

You know not I
You who wills to cage.
Know you not I
Who despises such chains.

You know not I.
You who would clip my wings.
Know you not I.
Who would fly to the very heights.

You know not I.
You who try to hide.
Know you not I.
Who would boast colors true.

You know not I.
You who is confined to one box.
Know you not I.
Who can fit in any box.

You know not I.
You who wishes for silence.
Know you not I.
Who would shout praise to the world.

You know not I.
You who wants no emotion.
Know you not I.
Who would cry while laughing.

You know not I.
You who would have no passion.
Know you not I.
Who has a passion for much.

You know not I
Saith mine own soul.
Know you not I.
That I would sing aloud.

I know not you.
Who would not hear.
Know I not you.
Who will turn and walk away.
