the dance

there are dances we are locked in

our bodies adjusted to move

learned by repetition and rote

oh how painful the news

we cooperate with this dance?

denial is the clue

looking inside,

excavation we must do

why does this serve me

if it causes so much pain

why do I stay,

for me what is the gain

fear paralyzes our movement

leaving us to the dance

that we’ve bled from before

robbing us of our chance

instead of a dip

we must learn to fly

forgetting the fear

keeping us locked up inside

yes you will hurt

and feel all alone

dancing solo

not the show you have known

no pity, no blame

no guilt and no shame

owning your choices

wild spirits can’t be tamed

so learn the new steps

your own powerful routine

let go of resentment

your soul light and clean

spinning around

disregard for the rest

let your spirit fly free

tangoing  your best

you remember your passion

your love and your light

reveling in the pleasure

that burns deeply inside

everything is new

your heart open wide

some things might hurt

but there is a star inside!

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
