    Mind blowing
    Sometime never knowing
    Wheeling
    Dealing
    Figuring out
    How I'm feeling
    Moving from dark to light
    Wrong to right
    It's me who starts this internal fight
    Choosing the winner
    Based on what I need
    Hungry as a hostage
    Got jones' to feed
    Lights and signs
    Instruction and direction
    Too many parts of me
    Needing protection
    This going on
    That going on
    On and on
    And on and on
    I hear my brother Dennis
    Singing "Ball of Confusion"
    Issues and concerns
    Like smoke and mirrors
    External illusions
    But my internal smile
    Will keep them at bay
    Dealing with it all
    Another day

    Every breath we take,

    brings the possibility, the promise, the hope, of the answer to tomorrow's test, among the rumpled heap of our own circumstances.... today...

    I'm feelin it ~ and it's beautiful to know, when the light comes on, our issues and concerns were/are all a part of the painful labor we must endure, to be delivered. And life is full of surprise and serendipitous finds. I'm a witness.

    I wish I could explain what this peace means to me, BE. Feels almost like I'm speaking in tongues, as it were. This is where poetry shows out.


    Thank you

    a
