Just Breathe

It is never
too late
to become
who you are
if you think less
feel more
and just
keep breathing.

I do not ask
for flashing neon
or concentrated sun.
I would not know
what to do
with those.
For me
the smallest sliver
of light
is more than enough.

Life's Work

I'm still afraid of so much and when I think about it all, it becomes far too overwhelming. So, I need to take life one day at a time, moment by moment, always remembering that this life is mine alone and that ultimately, the only standards I must meet are my own. I am an odd bird, others may not approve of or understand the way I live my life and that is okay, they don't have to. I have to stop trying to measure up to others, stop trying to live the conventional life so many expect, and simply remember to live in such a way that I cause no harm (or as little as possible), spread love and joy and can rest my head at the end of the day feeling content and comfortable in my own skin. Sounds easy enough, right? (Ha!) Off we go.

Storm Approaching

Grey clouds
across the sky
what wonders
do you contain?
Do you
gaze down
upon me
and wonder
the same?

On This Night

Beneath a smoky
grey night sky,
sax in my ears
mingling with
the oncoming train,
plane lights
blinking overhead,
I hammock swing,
home at last.
