nose to the grindstone

back pressed into the wall

i used to be committed

to punishing each of my falls

no more apologies

i've I'm sorried us to death

if you think I'm done rising

you ain't seen nothing yet

with every fiber of my being

backed by 10,000 ancestors strong

i am shining a light so fierce

my grandpeeps need never fall

 but if they do, my darlings

if they falter with come what may

there will be a lit path I've carved

holding the dark doubts at bay

i've removed every obstacle

to love that was in the way

leaving a legacy of hope and 

passion to sustain the cloudy days

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!!!
