Not Easy Being Me!

Not Easy Being Me
So Mum and Dad what can I said
I grow and change now everyday
Trying to find out who I am and where I fit in
Looking for answers but where do I begin
You see these changes in me and yet you still don’t understand
Its support I need right now not that back of your hand

Look Within Not Without

When your heart hurts because you are feeling sad, sit quietly and rest for a while Your heart will beat from within you and remind you that you are beautiful inside Seeking in your life the approval of others will not mend your heart, this will only prolong your pain Sit with your place of quietness and kindness to the self For the beauty of self is always within Stay quiet and look deeper inside for the forgiveness of any fault that you may feel is yours It is from the deepness within, that your soul will find you to forgive, if you need it Your soul will awaken the solution to your sadness and cure your hurt Your soul will not forsake you when you seek its guiding light even from your darkness Look within not without   Thanks to https://pixabay.com/en/users/TiALife-2408466/ for the image.

The Guest House

What a beautiful piece Jellaludin Rumi, is a 13th Century Persian poet  – often referred to as ‘Rumi’    The Guest House This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice. meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whatever comes. because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.   Jellaludin Rumi   Image  -thanks to The Power of Positivity.

Father’s Day

My Father the Hero Do we ever think of telling our dad how we feel about them? My father the hero, do I dare to tell? Yet I remember now as I look on his face so cold My dad the hero as he would comfort me in the night Screaming within my dreams, my dad stood there as I momentarily woke “I have shooed them away, those fears within your head, those terrible folk I’m here and they will not come back this night “ Who would come now to scare me in my dreams as my Dad stood guard? From the comfort of his touch I would sleep well, tucked in tight The morning would come and into the kitchen I would stand Grumpy in my mood and still half asleep, I would snap and ignore my hero of the night Yet my Dad would smile and look at me with love Only the sandman in my eyes, breakfast on my mind I stand here now with tears in my eyes and ask why I never said Trying to make it okay within myself My Dad that kept me safe each night Yet he is gone now and I can still feel his presence in my ‘doorway of life’ Protecting me from my fears in the day or night He never faltered as I grew, to care and watch over me Here I stand feeling safe, made into the man I am I ask why I never told him how I felt, my old man My Dad the hero who encourages me, protects me, ensures I am safe

The Outside Does Not Work

We are born from the light within to make a difference Given birth and life to add to our world Curiosity, creativity, all natural in seeking new ways Maturity in life, to be better at all things We meet the light only to be captured by the dark We leave the dark only to enter back into the light Seeing for a short time both sides in a balance of life The darkness grows stronger, by greed, corruption and failing minds Mankind forever changing the balance The light struggles to stay light and show a better way We have choice, we think, yet pressured to surrender to the dark We have free will to make a difference in our balance Go within and find your light For the outside does not work

The Tree

There is a beautiful chestnut tree that stands tall outside my window Every winter it throws off its former glory of its summer and autumn coats In winter it is kept warm by the falling snow that settles on its branches Waiting for the new time, so it can begin again to grow and shelter those who will make their home Continuous change to meet each season with a new and wonderful colour As the spring now is about to open its doors, the buds form and slowly wait to burst The man within looking out is no different and yet fails to recognise the same Possibilities and opportunities that each day will bring Worrying about what was, rather than what is now Embracing the time to show the many coats he can wear as the seasons come and go The tree does not wait for its death and think of what can be The tree smiles and greets each new season with joy So to the mindset of this man can also be

Looking to the Distance

Its far away the new and distance day Its difficult to be in the now and stay Wanting what is wished for is in the future What you have is in the now Examine your thoughts and focus your direction See what is in front of you and what you have been given Do not stray to seek what you have not What you have is in the now What we seek we have it now Yet what we have we may ignore What you have is what you got What you have is in the now What is here is for you to cherish Not wishing for something that might not come What you can do is live in the now What you have will see you right Seek to explore what you have in the now Seek to pay it the attention that it may need Listen to your thoughts for they are in the now What you have is the beauty of you
