Flight

flight

When you feel that you are in flow you just know that you are right, you feel that you are completely free and that you are in flight.

Lifting high above anything in to the free night , like nothing can hurt you or hold you down tight.

When you feel you are in flight you know that you can fight, that nothing or no one can hurt you not with all there might.

You are in a state of wonder that’s high in to the light, so free like a firefly that is shining so so bright.

~ M.L.Adams

This is a poem I wrote about the state of being flow, I called it flight because of the freeing feeling of being in this state. Just like that of flying (the parachute jump is something I’m planning on doing very soon so I can experience flight for real 🙂

Finding our flow however it may be, such as through poetry or sports, is something I believe we should practice everyday. It is the art of expressing oneself completely, freely and of being in our zone.

The Man Who Thinks He Can – Walter D Wintle

Thoughts

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will,
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outcast, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

~ Walter D Wintle

Such a beautiful poem with truth in every word, a gift to all of us from Walter D Wintle.

Be True to You

Trust in yourself , be true to what you know

In what is right for your life

On who you are and where to go

Listen within, trust and show that you know

In how far you can go and what it is you need to show

Open up your heart and world by listening from within

It’s from there where your life can really begin

It is there where the answers lie

Only there within

Looking outside your life will not lead you right

As others will only see you through their own eyes

Show to all what it is that you can really do

Do that which  is really right and really true for you

Only then will you really know how to bring to life

That which is your true power from within your own life

~ M.L.Adams

Your Soul

soul

I feel, I know

I feel, you know

I feel your soul

I see, I grow

I see your soul

I see, you know

You feel it too

I know you do

My soul is lost to you

~ M.L.Adams

This poem is written for someone who I feel close to on a very deep level, this experience was also what led me to begin writing poetry, as it was easier to express in this way. Some experiences in life can be difficult and hard to understand, but each experience always has a lesson or gift within it. This experience has taught me that some things just can’t be intellectualized, only experienced.

As Helen Keller said;

‘The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart.’

New Beginnings

New beginning

So many changes, so many lives

Always beginning and ending like day and night

How do I approach each time and each one

With a fresh new mind like I’ve just begun

Letting go of the old and in with the new

With no expectations or just maybe a few

Each experience brings new learning and insight

If I just listen to my heart then I know It’ll be alright

Each new time brings new love and light

There is no need to fight because each time leads to something right.

And so I will choose to lead a life that will shine forever bright.
