Begin Again

Begin again

You can’t unlearn what is learnt

Or undo what is done,

Every path is a lesson

To what you can become,

Find the power in every path

Then begin again once more,

To be far stronger and better

Than you ever were before

~ M.L.Adams

For anyone going through a tough time in any way, be strong as you know you are:)

Open Journey

open journey

I am open now, my heart is once more;

I can feel again, like I used to before

The fear and pain had closed me, this time it was no more;

This time was different, a journey of sorts

My feelings were just flowing like never before;

Now I am open again, this time much more

I will not close off again for I choose to have love,

Now I know what to do when things get really tough

I have to keep on fighting, To keep the feeling flowing

Whilst continuing on the path, to where I was going,

This is the journey, the jouney of love & life

The natural ups & downs, the transformations we must seek,

For this is where the heart is; not in closing off & feeling weak

The journey can be hard sometimes, sometimes harder than we know,

We want to run away and hide from all that hurts our soul

But this is far more painful, for then you do not know,

What you are missing out on when you journey with the flow.

~ M.L.Adams

This is one of the first poems I wrote, when I first started writing at the beginning of this year; literally on New Years Day( It wasn’t planned that way of course, so quiet odd:). Anyhow It took a lot of pain for me to go through to get to this place and I was left with this gift of being able to allow my thoughts to  flow in writing, of which I’m immensely grateful for.

I’m thankful also for any readers too, sharing is a blessing as it adds more purpose to writing and I also hope I can inspire some of you too. Writing is a beautiful way of letting go and sharing and I feel blessed to have learnt that this year.

Thank you for reading,

Awake

sunrise

Awake, Awake, sweet souls awake

Awake from that sleep where you hide

The time is now to see your truth

The time is now to wake up from inside

Life is a journey for all souls to take

You don’t need to hide, you can handle this

Ride your sweet journey open and awake

Awake sweet souls; awake for good

Show who you really are, be all you can

Don’t hide from what hurts or you lose what is good

You’ve nothing to hide,  only to bring your beauty to this land

~ M.L.Adams

The Beautiful Place

beautifu place

The place where love is born

Deep inside where nothings worn

All open fresh and new

Like new spring blossom dew

Such beauty deep within

Brings pimples to your skin

All fresh and new and bright

Like morning sunlight

Hold on each day and night

To such beauty in your life

Each day can be this way

Such a beautiful loving place

~ M. L.Adams

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.

~ M.L.Adams
