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

To Be Made Real By Love

Real is when love is shared
How we are show we care
And become aware
There are others out there
Whom we can share
In this world together
Somehow, everywhere
For kindness matters
Blessings and take care

Living Life Fully

Did you know? Love

I was talking with a friend
About how we were treated
When we were young
It turned out, we had
So many of the same
Stories to tell one another
Some of happy times
Many conflicting times
We grew up in such different times
And different places
With different faces
…And yet, our lives
Were impacted
By those who hated us
And by those who cared
We may have grown up
On different sides
When it came right down to it
We are all the same,
Well except those who
You know grow up to be bullies
We grew up to be caring
And want to share that love
For we know to win at life
If there is such a thing
We must first care to share
The love we found
And spread love everywhere

Singing Joy

Makes my heart sing
Seeing sparklies zoom
Across the midnight sky
 
To see the clouds
Reflect in the waters
As I drive on by
 
Such peace to be found
Only when I see
With my heart
And find joy abound

Ripples in Life

Inspirational Drops:

Little things in an average

day that make life

meaningful and worthwhile…

like an unexpected smile

or some kind deed

someone did

and you were made aware

by being present in that moment…

Step To The Outside

Laying on the bed
Many things swirling
Within my head
Someone gave instructions
Many moons ago
Follow precisely
This path will take you far
Several twists and turns
Led to dizziness
Now was told
Why did you not try this
Confusion sets in
As conflicting perceptions
Are given by the same person
Dance this way
No, walk quietly over yonder
Knowing guides only give clues
My path is clearly mine
I must travel to the outside
The box may be infinite
But it only seems to hold
Only a few individuals
At one time
My ride will take me
Along my joyney through life
