Flying Solo

Feeling the wind and not fighting the direction,

Spreading my wings to soar through the sky.

Flying solo and finding my way,

Guided by stars and dreams.

Sunlight breaks through the dark,

Warming the chill from the night air.

With the light comes hope

And a path that can only be felt

For it is traveled on the wind.

There is no way of knowing what comes,

Only learning to fly through,

Gliding through the soft winds and breezes

While enduring the rough turbulence and storms.

Navigating these are the most difficult

Learning to dive and pull up so as not to crash.

Dodging and weaving to find the way out of the clouds.

Flying free.

Never Looking Back

It is what we know

It is the past

Memories floating in our mind

Drifting in the tide of our emotions

As we swim the seas of love and life to make our choices

Learning to swim through the rough waters

Floating with the currents

Adrift into the future

Oceans of unknown and uncharted water

Dark skies lit by stars to chart and navigate

Sunrises and sunsets to come and go

New seas of love to swim and wash away the fear

Braving the unknown and thinking there is knowing

But there is nothing known only deceptive similarities

Creating imaginary rough waters which uncalmed will grow to tidal waves

All of which are nothing but imagined in the mind

Keep swimming towards the dawn

Brave the night to endure the rough seas of light leading to love

Definitely Maybe

There was no hope to dream

The fear of hurt was overwhelming

Drowning in pain and sorrow

The storm was fierce and long

Destruction pathed to death

There were no more tears to shed

Nothing

And then there is the sunrise

Another tomorrow in the seemingly endless tomorrows

There is a little warmth

The skies brighten as the clouds part

Lingering is the fear of the dark

The path back looms in the shadows

Knowing the abyss awaits

Then there is hope

With hand outstretched and words of gentle breathe

Reaching to hold a moment of pleasure

Living in a moment of ecstasy that melts the mind and body into one

Walking on air and knowing that to believe, desire, and trust can lead to paths of dreams

Finding the ability to dream again

Dreaming to live dreams
