Unpaved Ways

Dusks turn deeper
Nights of no moon
Traipsing in once again
Out come old scars
Ebullitions tear open
With memories she felt
Concealed dim.
With no leaders to guide
She must do what they won’t
All safety taken in stride
She must now pave a way
To protect without strife
Saving young souls
Of her life.

Monday Quote #1

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.

– Charles Bukowski

Amplified Classroom

naiveté no longer a curse
she releases accusations
of eccentricity

Free Originality

so you think
you cannot accomplish
what Inner Compass
calls you to do
create your own path
originality intact
allow yourself to
live life anew.

“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”

~ Masaru Emoto
