Journey Over Water

changes inside
the heat and Light from within
licking gently at my sanity

on soft boil
feels Divine
time slowing to a crawl

to be hard boiled
supple yet firm
a snack for some lucky Dragon

the skies are dark
yet i push my little skiff
along with what strength i have

quiet days and nights
memories of playing children
blue glow on the Horizon guiding

i must always remember

i am never alone
forever may I float above and below
I will not fear the dark within

The Road Within

Be brave

Take risks

Have courage

Go where others fear

Be true to yourself

Give all you have

 

Inspired by The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

 

“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself
and that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because
every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
– The Alchemist
