The Imminent
Fork

The road diverges
Even the wisest men cannot know
Which path is right
Which way you’ll go
For one path is bright
Well lit and safe
But you have already swallowed
Your footsteps down
The dark side
An ever quickening pace
Temptations that inspire your tastes
The darkness does not mean evil
Just a veil covering clarity
Whose shadows flirt with fear
But be unafraid
It draws you near
To face it down
To the bitter end
For the secure path
Would surely drill
A hole through your existence
A dull pull on the heart
From going through the motions
This is not the way to start
The fire that burns inside
Will magnify your way
So you see you are not
In the dark after all

The Journey Is A
Part Of The Answer

Feel the anticipated bliss
The knowing of what is
The ease of the next step
Know you are getting closer
The journey is a part of the answer
To let go and roll with the flow
Every day that slips through fingers
Do not grieve for the loss
Be relieved for this day
That lungs are still breathing
Be abundant with gratitude
For the swelling heart inside
That rises like an ocean tide
And covers you like the shore
To wet your palette once more
To let you taste the salty joys
The salty tears that stream your face
When you feel the rage of life inside
Every day is a calling
Has a message
Has a meaning
And we get to choose what it is
We get to choose how to feel
Whether to fly
Or slowly die inside
Choose to soar
To scream in rapturous roars
Like a lover torn apart
By a love so deep and divine
It shines right through from your insides
Radiate and stimulate
The butterfly beating in your chest
Give it to the wind
To explore
And understand
To philosophize
Why
Why it’s important
What it means to feel good
To taste the breeze
To seek out the experiences
And thoughts
And desires
That drive the wild child
That sometimes wants to hide
And set her free

A Ballerina
Caught In A Dance
With Destiny

I feel a force surround me
Like I’m sinking deep into the sea
Swirling down in a wild
Wonderfully twirling
Pool of destiny
It has a hold of me
Twisting me in glorious form
I’m a ballerina caught in its dance
Prancing along and I do not feel lost
In the oceans of chance
I feel strong
For I may not know
Where this whirlpool goes
But I believe

A Drastic Pursuit
For Nothing Less

Time and time again
I’m not sure where we are
We’ve travelled so far
Taking our chances over the wall
Is it all in my head
The distance we tread
Standing so sure and so strong
Fighting the demons that don’t belong
Long and long the nights I lie awake
I stop counting the stakes
Aware of the permanence
Looking for consonance
Calming the fever lurking within
Choosing the moment we live in
A mad struggle to find a softness
A drastic pursuit for nothing less
As tenderness surrounds me
I sink in
Only this exists
Transformation can happen in an instant
To realize without the need to repent
The permanence evolves
Flaming hearts dissolve
I embrace how deep I have fallen
Far more than I ever imagined

Oh The Journey

From ascension to ashes
Rising up again to begin anew
To set our eyes upon peaks just to dive through jungles
To scale the sky and soar through stars
To challenge cliffs
To collapse through clouds
To land on our face and face the land back down
To claim the road
To create our own curves
To recognize the power in the process

Revel
In The Quest

I’m floating
But not fading
I wander
But I wonder
I have no answers
But I ponder
And I revel
In the quest

You Are So
Fucking Ready

You’ve expanded
You’ve exploded
It can’t be explained
It will conquer you
And save you at the same time
You are a galvanized warrior
You are capable of more than the you know
You are a hero
You are long distance runner with no end in sight
Do not be afraid of the road ahead
You love it
Like the athlete who only lives to pound that pavement
On explorations through wilderness
Flying so high
Take it in stride
You are feeling most alive
When you go on that adventure
Take it
No fear
Stop saying you are terrified
You are so fucking alive
You are so fucking ready
