Finding the Lost Kid

All seems to have escaped.

Look inside to recapture all wonder

not lost. What never left, rests intact.

Simple curiosity and imagination,

feeling playtime within its new skin,

await as only equipment necessary

to rekindle love, laughter, thunder or

loosen hidden waterfalls enchanted.

Once again rising strong, personal truth

awakened to an original purpose.

Magic Elixir

Sometimes gentle silence
is the best elixir
for those moments
not anticipated
shocking fragility
of any human’s soul.

Is It Your Story?

Today marked the one-year anniversary since the passing of musical artist, Prince. I decided to create a poem inspired by one of his earlier songs, called Controversy. It has stayed with me since I first heard it as a rebellious thirteen-year-old.

I just can’t believe all the things people say
Controversy
Am I black or white, am I straight or gay?
Controversy
Do I believe in god, do I believe in me?
Controversy…

~Prince, from album, Controversy

Tears

 

Tears from branch broken,

Unknowing life beyond.

Tears arose as seeds

planting healing hope of love.
