What really died?

A lot had to die
Bit
by
Bit
A lot died a whole lot
Before
The first Poetry was born

The Process of Poetry
Became the new Life

I wonder what really happened
When the poetry Itself died

A lot of Space opened up
Bit
by
Bit
A lot of Space a whole lot
Before
The new Beginning is born

 

P.S. Dear Debbie, please include this as a contribution to ForgivingFridays, if you see fit. I offer these words coming through, as a way of accepting the unfolding of life with no judgment.

No …you didn’t!

You didn’t mess it all up.
No
You didn’t!
You showed up.
With all that you had in you.

You didn’t lose anything.
No
You didn’t!
You showed up.
You got exactly and all out of it.

You learned something
About yourself and about that thing.
You showed up.
You will never be the same again
When you show up next.

You didn’t mess it all up.
No
You didn’t lose anything!

 

Thank you dear Debbie for accepting this as a contribution to ForgivingConnects. I am always deeply enriched with peace when reading your posts.

Unfolding our Passion

Unfolding our passion
Beyond the purpose
Of being visible
To those few who know us

Once this feels sensible
And seems possible
Opens up avenues
To step out of our comfort zone
To finally start to let loose
Inhibitions and limitations
The need for approval & gratification

Allowing expression
For the pure joy of it
Breaking open
From the fear of it

Your passion now brings you home
To yourself and your Being
Exploring the truths of You
Embracing all that is true to You
Doesn’t matter now who sees you
As long as you see You!

Whilst you learn to walk
And accidentally hit the wall
Do you go back to forever crawl?
What makes you then your passion stall?

Laugh it off, start over
Cry it off, start over
Accept help, start over
Demand help, start over
Love yourself, start over
Refresh and focus, start over

Keep chipping away at it
Even if only bit by bit
Extracting the nectar drop by drop
Find a smile if again you stop

Let yourself unfold your passion
Beyond the purpose
Of being visible
To those few who know you!
