I’ve been a foreigner, I’ve been a friend,
walked far, lived in a car – been transient.
I was young, fearless and kind,
thankfully not blind
to be open to the world’s love and crime –
the dangers, the lies,
the beauty and the Devine.
By foot or by wheels, to each their own,
whichever way appealed to me at the time.
Be careful who you show a smile –
disguised under a façade you may find
not a go(o)d kind.
Wonderful, magical times
are found in those who shine,
once you learn to tell them apart,
eventually you get smart
and if you continue to let life’s trials all be lessons,
you too will rise to become wise –
“be still and listen, be slow to answer,
slow to anger and quick to forgive.”~ E. Lang
Keep on a disguise
so you can be shielded
from the hidden trickeries
that become ties –
ties that bind and ties that keep –
precious secrets and
Don’t believe anything
but the truth that’s inside,
not my story, not yours –
the only one needs not defending nor defining
and takes no sides.
Beautiful and still is the language of God,
for only in silence can you hear your hearts’ beat.
Cherish your blessings, love with all your heart
and know that true strength lays in gentleness,
Breathe Love, Live Love,
and practice Love –
Blessings and keep shining brightly,
