Average Rut

It makes me weak
Makes me drown
“Becoming normal”
Drowning in the mundane
Stuck in an average rut
Can’t find the exit sign
Show me the way out
Take me to the sweet bliss
Of a world laced with ecstasy
Days optimistic
Nights pessimistic
Back and forth
Up and down
Did I choose this ride?
Did I buy the ticket?
Can I ever get off?
Is this it?

Sunshine

He is
The human embodiment
Of joyous sunshine
Way up high
As if strung up
To the heavens themselves
He is
The bright side
That surmounts the darkness
Reflecting light and grace
Back to anyone
Who gazes upon him

Everlasting Journey

Cotton candy skies
The sun sets
Nostalgia seeps in
Longing for simpler times:
The sun didn’t ask as many questions
The moon didn’t expect as many answers
Now the questions are tireless
My answers are dwindling
Falling ever behind in this cycle
Needing a reminder
Dawn is dawn and dusk is dusk
Neither can be a beginning or an end
Let go of your daily attachments
This is an everlasting journey

We are She, She is We

They say the best curve a woman can have
Is the upward curve of her smile
But have they met Mother Earth?
Her curves are endless
Stretching on for miles and miles
Within it’s hills
That smile back and forth to each other
To you, to me
Clouds dancing about the sky
Like freckles shine in the sun
Valleys that seems to chase each other
Like children do
Rivers and lakes far apart
That somehow connect
The way soul mates always do
The rough of the rocks
The strength of the earth
Ever felt so grounded that you are the world?
She is that
Everyday
Always
With a range of emotions owned with pride
That can be understood by humanity
For we mirror her moods
We mirror her life
For it is also ours
A joy that radiates like sunshine
Waves of sadness that come like rain
Changes of pace and mind
Like the winds blowing in our hair
The peace or fear of the calm before the storm
A rage with force
Like oceans crashing upon its shores
The trembling of uncertainty
That shakes us like earthquakes
The outbursts of frustration
That shoot out like lightning
And echo like thunder
We are she and she is we
She is deserving of all our compassion
Because she already gives us hers
Everyday
We are she and she is we

Yin Yang

Piece into me
Balance my opposites
Fill my darkness
With your light
Let it seep into my soul
Overwhelm my senses with desire
Appease my mind with wholeness
With you I am whole
You have found every
Empty crevice of my being
Lay bare the seeds
And through the fruits of your labor
Have grown a genus of wildflower
Known not by the world
But only by us

Jojo
