Wind

I like the wind,
the freshness of it,
the power,
how it alters everything in its path,
how it makes the trees come alive,
how it can make a hot day bearable,
how it can make a warm day cooler,
how it makes you think of beating angels’ wings,
I like it because of the joy it brings.

I like the wind.

This time I can’t tell.

Sometimes,
it’s hard to tell
what path is right for me.
Which way do I go?
Which one do I choose?
Sometimes,
you make it easier O Lord,
you make it clear as day
the choice I should make
but not this time.
This time I can’t tell
what is better for me,
what I should choose,
what you want me to do!

Help me O Master of the universe,
’cause this time
I can’t tell.

It’s the love…

Water flowing,
Fires burning,
Hearts beating,
People breathing,
Is that what constitutes life?
Is that how we survive?

It’s the tears that keep flowing,
It’s the hope that keeps burning,
It’s the smiles that make us live.
It’s the joy that makes us breathe.

It’s the love that makes our hearts beat.

Stop dreaming?

Looking back at my life,
I see joy,
I see pain.
I see loss,
I see gain.
There have been accomplishments,
as well as failures.

I am happy, I think.

But when I look back..
I also see those dreams..
that I’ve let go.

Does that make us happier?

Having less dreams?
Having less goals?

It doesn’t, does it?

Part of us still wants to go after those dreams
to make them happen.
But the other part, the comfort zone yearning part of us,
simply quiets it down.

You are happy it says, why bother?
It’s impossible it says, why try?

We forget our dreams. We get used to being in that zone.

But remember the dreaming part of us never dies.

It might shut down for a while,
but it’ll wake up.

Though it might be too late by then.
