No Obligation

You are under no obligation

To be the person you were

Five minutes ago

This is your life

The footprint you leave

On this world

Is yours to impart

The entire universe is impacted By the choices you make

Your belief can move mountains

Your thoughts

Create your experience

What will you create

What mountain will you move

How will you impact the universe

Do you like who you are

Yes, great

No, change yourself

Stop waiting for “when”

When is NOW

Grab hold of your thoughts

Grab hold of life

And

Wring the living daylights

Out of it

Hope

Drugs ruin

Alcohol ruins

Political stance ruins

A closed mind ruins

Religiousness ruins

The ruin is a hardened heart

Eyes that don’t see

Ears that don’t hear

A tongue that speaks froward things

But I still hold onto hope

Hope that the drug addict will be

Completely healed

Hope the alcoholic will overcome the urge

Hope political stances find common ground

Hope that closed minds will be opened

Hope that religiousness will give way

To the truth

Of unconditional love

From God

Who dwells within us all

If we believe

Patience

Got my rose colored glasses on

Ignoring my sore muscles from

Weight training week one

Ignoring my scale

Trying to anyway

Chilling on my sofa chewing kale

The pain will get easier

The scale will get lighter

The kale will get swallowed

Patience girl

Patience

Just show up for yourself

Every day

Live Life

The hardest part is deciding

Deciding how I would really like

Like to life my life

Life has taught me hard lessons

Lessons of not attaching

Attaching to things or people

People come and go

Go and leave dreams broken

Broken dreams make it hard

Hard to decide how

How I would really like to live my life

Life was made to be lived

Lived to the fullest including pain

Pain eventually fades

Fades and gives way to hope

Hope in the future and a better time

Time to decide

Decide and imagine

Imagine and live

Live life to its fullest

Anywhere You take me

Sand between my toes

Can sun streak grey hair?

Snow falling on my nose

Lots of memories to share

Ocean breezes

Sing me to sleep

Rain falls on tin

Making a rhythmic beat

Mountain ranges

Brilliant colors

Stoney caverns

Lakes of blue

Anywhere

You take me

I will always go

Do Not Conform

There is a distant voice

Calling

It gets louder

As I get older

Calling

Do not settle

Do not conform

Calling

Love with abandon

Live with passion

Calling

Stay free

Enjoy each experience

Calling

Seek wisdom

Disregard skeptics

Calling

Take risks

Do not fear pain

Calling

You were created for this moment

Do not let it pass in vain
