There is always a way

Sometimes along the journey thru life, there are side streets or stumbling blocks. These are not meant to detour one from the path. Sometimes these can be awakening moments for one to see how far one has travelled so far. Other times, these can put one in amidst of uncertainty of where to travel next. At this time, one must take time to breathe and reflect. There is always a way.~pharris2011

Unwanted

Unwanted
Days came on
Suddenly
Without warning

The masks were taken
By each of us to wear
We dare not show
Our true selves
To those who wish
Nothing but to conform
Set in their ways
Stating others have to follow
No longer learning or creating
Follow their path or else

They have said
To live your dreams
But really saying
Only conforming
Is the true path

But those of us know
Freedom is not found there

Freedom is found
In wisdom, inspiration,
And creating a world
Our children can wonder

Masks hide true intentions
Tear away and find freedom
And share the gratitude
In delightful endeavors

Puddles Deep Within

Puddles
Soon after
The mists had gone
Puddles appeared
Within the forest
 
Saturated ground
Accumulated with tears
Sent to earth
From angels above
 
Unheard cries
Of tortured souls
Ring truths to know
Weary and burdened
Attempts to survive
Only to be forced to hide
 
Scattered
To find shelter
Amongst the forest deep
Where dragons roam
And keep gold aplenty
As their beds resting
Quietly in the forest deep
 
A splash awakens
The dragon
From slumber
No longer
Safe
 
All run and splash
In the puddles
So deep
Deep within the forest
No one can hear
No one can sleep
 
For fear of the unknown
Is forever keeping us
Running in puddles
In the deep forest

The Seedling

 

I sit and watch
A seedling falls
Floating with the wind
Tumbling through the air
Long since left
Birthplace behind
Guiding along
On a joyney
Of self discovery
Finding a place
To find comfort
To find nourishment
To find security
The wind may guide
But to set down roots
Is the completion
Of the mission
As growth and change
Are inevitable
Time to begin
Is now at hand
I must allow change
Now starts anew

The Seedling

Sing Blue Bird, Sing 

 

I asked you to play
A game called life
There are what may see
As winners and loosers
But I am here to say
We all win, if anyone wins
Sure the misconception shows
When some may take much more
Without giving back tenfold
And some may hinder
The whispers of the facts

Knowing my dream is valid,
As is yours…we can
Together make this place
Pleasant for all
But it is working together
Not for oneself

Each of us deserves respect
Each of needs some time of rest
A good nutritional meal
A place to call home
And a voice to sing

For in singing that song
Our dream comes alive
Harmony ensues
Some outliers creating sparkles

Bluebird sing our song
And help along the joyney
For we are here all
Living one day to another
Creating a world together

By Pauline Harris

Floating

 

Water not too deep
Laying down
Just resting
Only sounds
Of water gurgling
Closing eyes
Mind calmly
Focuses upon
My breathing
In and out
Slowly in
Hold
Breathing out
Feet tingle
Legs at rest
Arms and chest
Peaceful
Solitude
Healing vibes
Waves wake me
Momentary gasps
Regain focus
Stretch out
Each toe
And finger
Hand and foot
Twist and turn
Dive into the water
Glide up refreshed
Reinvigorated
For what is to come
Hope remains alive
By Pauline Harris

Inspire a Life, Instead

Sometimes I just want to shout
But all that comes out is a whisper
So many people are important
And yet others bring them down
Does one feel stronger or more powerful
Bringing others down, or is it something else
They feel so small and want others to join in
Whichever the case, why not inspire
Allow others to shine and not bind
Keep hope alive and align with love
Never leave others behind
Or dig their graves
Bringing loving light through grace
Allows us all to elevate our world
To find new beginnings
And complete a quilted path or two
For no one alive has done
This life alone…thanks to all who care
And share in becoming a team
Gratitude and blessings
Upon each joyney through life
By Pauline Harris
