In the Midst of Chaos

Standard

Where is the balance point
between the effort and the ease?
Where is the grace
that allows forgiveness to find me?
Where is the sweet one
who will coax my heart out of hiding?
Where is the soul nourishment
that will sustain me?
I keep trying, trying, trying.
I’m exhausted from the effort
of teasing apart the jumbled mess
of other people’s perceptions
and finding my true self
concealed somewhere deep within.
Where am I,
who am I,
in the midst of all of this chaos?

What’s Next?

Standard

So, let’s say that all of your dreams came true.
Then what?
Do you have plans for after
the plans you currently hold
come to fruition?
It is the nature of life and love
to expand endlessly, forever,
without reason or explanation or logic.
You are a part of that expansion
in a body you have rented from the earth.
Infinitely creative and powerful,
you can be, do and have whatever you want.
Yes. So when you get all that,
what’s next?

Can You Relate?

Standard

So what WOULD happen
if I stopped trying so hard?
I mean, would the world spin off its axis?
Would the universe become unhinged?
Would people think less of me?
The answer is definitely NO to the first two,
and MAYBE to the third,
and in the end,
what does it really matter?
How do I stop trying so hard
after years and years and years
of my nervous system believing
that I would die if I didn’t?
I take a few breaths
and sigh loudly as I exhale.
I feel my body soften and relax.
My heart opens a little more,
my belly isn’t clenched so tightly,
the knots begin to untie.
None of this makes sense,
but maybe some of you can relate?
