The Path Ahead

So many times the path ahead

Is shrouded in the mist

Of worry, fear

Of hopes and dreams

And all that we resist.

Though as we put one foot

Then next

And make the road our own,

We see the vague

Becomes defined

As steps our souls have

Known.

A Claim To Being

In every day

There’s room for

Gentle lectures

About living.

No scolding.

No critic.

Just a voice

To give

Some space,

A softened claim

To being.

Conjure Hope

Conjure hope

From odd bits

Of despair.

Recall the magic

Of compassion

Summoned from thin air.

Remember how small light

Brightens

Everywhere.

Permission

Permit yourself

To be

All that you are

Today

With the unfinished corners

Hanging out

For all to see.

Allow yourself

The story

Of the things you

Have become

And still are changing.

Grant your

Everything

A place for be.

Don’t forget:

You can do

All that needs

Follow through,

You can breathe

Life anew

As you hold

To what’s true

For your

Viable you.

Stay focused on what matters:

The smiles that gladden

The hugs that hold

The beauty that makes your heart quicken

The deep power of empathy

The healing breath of soul.

Stay focused

On the big picture

And on the

Details

That make it

Whole.

As We Continue On

Second life DvoraFreedman

Our lives are partially the story of others, interwoven into our own. In the good and the bad and the things that time may shift to someplace in between. We are who we let our story make us into. Like the seasons that spin about us, we recycle some bits of our story and reuse other aspects to rebuild or grow from. Through it all, our lives crease along the odd and unexpected, yet are fed by the mundanely profound interactions that form the backdrop to the breaths we take, each day, each moment, as we continue on.

The Words

Recite the words you want to hear

Those your heart dreams to

Follow

Recite the words your soul still seeks

The ones that soothe

A sorrow

Recite the words you know are true

They will bring forth

Tomorrow.

Tailor your actions

To good mending.

Take care to not

Rip apart

What should be kept.

Adjust your thoughts

So they can fit your conscience

In its Sunday best.

Shape your ways

To outfit what your soul believes in

Sewn to perfect

Silhouette.

Attune to kindness

So it can help you

Choose

The right attire

For your heart.
