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

Interconnected Love

This is it, infinite peace
It does not come from wisdom
It does not come from power
It does not come from possessions
It does not come from another
It comes from love
But not romantic love
Interconnected love
The kind of love
That encompasses all things
All beings, all places, all creatures
The kind of love that lets you know
That you are never alone
For we are all one
We are one in our victories
We are one in our failures
We are one in sorrow and in joy
We are one in this life we lead
Our experiences are all connected
And if that doesn’t warm your aching heart
If that doesn’t warm your sunken soul
Then I will warm it for you
For it is mine also
And I love it all the same

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
