A Vision

Pull me in
Drag me out
Push me to my limits
Take me out of my comfort zone
For this is where I thrive
Growth is where I reside
Stagnant energy is my demise
Always learning
Forever forward
Looking back is unproductive
Looking ahead is endless turmoil
I can only act now, act today
I look within and find my truth
I share my truth with others
And in turn, I learn theirs
When combined
A new vision grows
A collective vision
A vision for a better world
A vision in sync with life itself
A vision that supports
A vision that guides
A vision that bonds
A vision that strengthens

Begin Anew

Revisit your truths
For they need reminding
Revisit your faults
For they require compassion
Revisit your pain
For it requires understanding
Do not dwell, but objectively observe
Accept, make peace, watch, and learn
We are ever growing, ever changing
Like water we flow
Like trees we grow
Like leaves we fall, we decay
This is universal
This is unchanged
All humans are but the same
The same in death
Return to the earth
Begin anew
You are eternal glory
Cycling through

Nuances

Give me strength
Beam me up
Bring me high
Up above reality
Behind the façade
I see so much purity
But we disguise
We hide
We run in fear
We curse this life we lead
When only yesterday
We blessed it
These are the nuances
They have been told for eons
For you are never safe
When you are confined
To a steady, unyielding constant
It is only in the waves
That the ship takes its course

Jojo

Whole

Captured
Captured in a moment
Captured in a feeling
Captured in this knowing
Captivated by immense peace
Captivated by you
Captivated by all of you
Involved in myself
And in turn
Involved in all of us
Bettering myself
And in turn
Bettering us all
For within me, is you
And within you, is me
We breathe in and out
In total synchronicity
We live this life separate
But connected all the same
Individual but whole
Singular yet plural
One but in oneness

Jojo

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
