longing for gaia

walking through the woods, the forest and the trees

...Is where my spirit yearns and hungers to be free

a blanket of darkness to caress and hide my soul

to lose myself in the depths of shadows so familiar and yet so old

 you would think that the loneliness of my solitude would do me in

there you'd be mistaken, my adventure and life would just begin

there has to be more to this life, than paying the monthly bills

i've tried, yearned, learned, read written, painted to my fill.

 and yet

 there has to be more, more I haven't found

like an elusive butterfly, won't be kept and won't be bound

i have to keep this faith, in these magical beings

for if i lose this belief then what wonder would life bring?

 so forgive me if my mind wanders

onto brighter, more mystical things

if I seem not to pay attention

to the worlds trivial mundane mutterings


for wouldn't it be grand

if i came and took u by the hand

leading you to the moonlit silvery lake

where festivities of fairies we would partake.

Told to write it all down, I do, finally. It took me from 1991 to now, to surrender to Universe/God/dess (insert name of choice) and to embrace this path with my soul wide open. I love sharing all of my journey with young people to demonstrate that it is possible to choose the light constantly even when face to face with your own darkness. I've used a variety of tools to shed ego's protective barriers like onion layers. I am determined to share the journey, tools and encouragement, being the change I want in the world. If something resonates, touches you, please share, it could do the same for another. Also feel free to share your thoughts, opinions or to voice your disagreement, all points of view are welcome and appreciated, at worst we can agree to disagree. Thank you for stopping by!!! Sat Nam
