Maybe One Day

Maybe One Day
 
We often talk about wanting truth
But we seldom strive to find it
Sure we look or listen or read
Deep down, we still want our illusions
Many we have learned
Some are forced upon us as true
Occasionally we hide them
For we don’t want them to be true
Or we don’t believe they are true
And some we just want them to go away
Sometimes the lies are so much more
Believable or acceptable by society
So we give in to the lies as if they were true
There are some people who will never let us
Decide or know the truth
Others who will claim someone lies
While that person is struggling
To make sure the truth is heard
No matter the cost and that is the truth
 
Maybe one day we will be able
To listen, to read, to see
What the truth is in our world
I hope we strive to understand the truth
When we finally get to know it is true
Our world is complex and we spend time
Trying to over simplify it to our vision
When the world is pure wonderment
We need only to open our hearts

HeartSmile

HeartSmile…I carry

the memories n love

of those who have been

with me at some point

or another in a HeartSmile…

each time I smile,

I allow their love to come 

through me and reach out

to another…

to brighten another’s day…

or just to say hi and to enjoy life…

thank you all

who have influenced

my smiles through the years...

may the smiles continue

to grow and flourish..

HeartSmiles to all.~pharris2012

Essence of Life

A faint whisper calls, not with words
but with an essence of energy
Something new is approaching
coming to encompass you
and your world, it is not fear you feel
It is a love more powerful
You embrace it,
yet someone is holding you back
Do you let go of them or embrace it all
Both to be fulfilled by new essence
surrounding everything.

One Raindrop

One Raindrop

A calm breeze began
Picking up speed
Humidity rising
Sweat beginning to form
Feeling warm chills
All up and down 

Thoughts of preparing
Momentary lapse
Prioritize this and that
Feeling awkward
As no sign happening is occurring
No clear path
And yet prepare for the worse
And then one raindrop falls
Making haste, second guessing
Thunder in the distance
Another drop forming a puddle
Drips creating ripples
Moments of time
Stand still
If only for a minute 

Mesmerized
Thinking the storm has passed
Lightning strikes the tree
Bursting it, shattering it
Fire burning
Engulfing nearby objects
Fear creeps in
Must move on now
Terrified of whats more to come
Grab bags and jump into the car

Earthlings, We Are

Earthlings we are
Earthlings we will always be
As we may one day venture
Beyond our earthly planet
Home is here on earth
For us, you and me
We have so much in common
But we strive to point out
What is so different
We are forever Earthlings
Both you and me
