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
( Inspired by Brene Brown’s Ted Talk – The Power of Vulnerability.)
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
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.
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.
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.
A Butterfly, a Chapel, a Ladybird, a Breeze
There’s the beauty of an angel inside each one of these
There’s the same beauty in each one of us, If that is how we choose to be
Free and flowing like an angel in each of you and me
The beauty of an angel, the beauty you can’t always see.
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
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
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.’
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.
