A Light Shines ON

 
Be still my heart
The earth trembles
Fires spew out
From the earth’s crust
Furies of discourse roar
Strongly to threaten justice
Truth speaking in whispers
Twisted words taking lead
Smoke easing out
Poisoning all, but going unnoticed
As focus is on mirrors
Cracks do appear
Opening up as the morning star
Rises in the east
Bridging more than just friends
Bringing together hope
A light shines its way
Into the hearts of us
Everyday and everyway
With answers to end all hate
And bring poverty to an end
Delusional visions still mask
Those who only see themselves
We can prevail and making this world
A world for all, not just those who think
There are limits in a world of unending hope
Love will win, if we choose to see
With our hearts, not just our minds

Shadows Deep

 
Years had passed
Since I saw you last
Our lives had once
Been full of promise
The dreams we had
Were set in a distant land
 
Separations happened
We moved ourselves apart
Our journeys led astray
Focus and will come along
After moments went ablunder
The time of change has come
Believing in love will last forever
 
And always
 
For today is not the day we die
But the time to realize
We have come a long way
Only to discover much more
Is found in love shared
 
Desire to move forward
No longer bond in shadows
We must seek compassion
The Grace will show the way
 
Walking alone does nothing
Heartsmiles deliver much
Cracks within walls lead
To the light of the true path
 
Now to follow the pebbles stones

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

adventure in life

“…and there was the time

when I danced with the wind under my feet…

I swam looking up under the water

seeing the swaying branches…

I snuggled on my bed…

I dreamed a painting into life…

I wrote a poem without knowing

the words were being written…

I got lost in the woods to find my way out…

I lost my sight than got it back…

seeing people’s mouths move

and have no idea what they are saying,

then them getting mad at me

cause I did not know what they said to me…

not being able to get up and walk…

each day holds new adventures…

some are outside waiting for us…

and others, we just seem to find”~pharris

Kindness

Gentle words of love and courage
Sacred spirit shared with all believers
Beyond words of wisdom, a notion
To carry on expressing joyful giving
Souls awakened beyond this earthly realm
Accomplishing peace everlasting. ..so it is

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
