Strife colors the air I breathe

We are all wandering in a sea of darkness,

Searching for things that gleam within its dark corners

I am afraid, alone and unknowing.

But tides turn,

And with new dawns come rays of light,

Piercing shadows, illuminating snippets of recognition

That tug at our souls

Push the fear away,

A steady voice within me whispers.

Stalwart hearts never have to fear

You are the air above you

And the grass beneath your feet.

Rise above the burdens that

Hang needlessly at your neck.

Let them not weigh you down.

Let them not taint your heart.

Once, I think, there was knowledge

Of the everlasting that is beyond

The meager scope of my weary gaze.

The realization flows in my veins,

Like life blood,

That I am everything.

I am love and light,

Held together by fragile filaments

Called body and mind.

I am enthralled.

I was always Music.

I always traveled on the wind

Tracing the delicate lines of your face,

Touching your heart,

Stirring your soul.

Such things are constant

And never change.

I was always the Seeker.

Restless heart with gypsy soul,

Seeking answers, seeking truths

Without having a guide,

Traversing plains of uncharted territories.

Pushing aside distorted visions

And perverted dreams.

Beautiful untruths are still untrue.

I could never stay silent

In the face of falsehoods.

I am eternal.

I have not changed

Since the beginning of time.

In my stripped down form,

I remain the same soul

Who first walked this Earth,

Helpless and new.

With each age, I learn a new lesson,

Adding rings to the tree trunk,

Wrinkles to the eyes of wisdom.

Every day I learn a new lesson

In faith and in love.

God is in the music.

God is in the details.

We never die, and never grow old.

Only shed a new skin,

Don a new dress.

We only get smarter,

Only grow stronger.

We never fade away.

I embrace the soul of the world

And try to give it only love,

Only love,

In hopes that you will feel it,

In hopes that they will learn.

I see you, scared and alone,

And I reach towards you.

I want to make the pain go away,

The shadows grow smaller.

I want you to live.

To Breathe in fresh air,

Instead of smothering in your sorrow.

I want you to feel love,

Only love.

God is in your eyes,

Even if you don’t know it.

I want the wounds to heal,

Salve to bleeding flesh,

Love to broken heart.
