Talking to the universe: Smile

Talking to the universe: Smile

Hi universe, it is me Soren.

I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on our journey.

Once upon a time, I was very lost.

I hid from my true self…sometimes there are still shadows of those days.

Then we have our little talks.

You remind me to smile, even when I do not feel like doing so.

Not because society deems it to be so, you have taught me to not give a damn opinions of the week minded.

Emotions of the past, present and future they swirl about and sometimes they make it even harder to put that smile on.

Insecurities of the fabricated mind.

judgment of one’s own thoughts.

Temperance has been my enemy and my friend.

Balance sometimes all but impassable to achieve

You have taught me that this is all but human.

Not all days are successful and you have taught me that is perfectly acceptable.

Not all smiles are viable form the outside.

There are days one cannot shine their outer light and instead relies on the internal flame for guidance.

Somedays that vibration gets clouded, when the darkness of the world seeps into my soul and I find myself at your mercy.

These are the days that you come to me, as a friend.

You tell me to smile and I take your words to heart.

Even when my smile does not show and remains hidden to be seen by only that of my own shadow.

Heart and wilted daisy

Heart and wilted daisy

Passing light

Faded beauty

Still silhouette

Time’s embrace

Fleeting memory

Blinking moments

Still heart

Ode to M

Ode to M

Chained and bound by the hands of destiny.

Love sparked through the beating of feathered wings.

Eyes of brow, dark and full of a mother’s light.

Strength of a warrior, one who leads the victorious through life and the unfortunate to their demise.

Wisdom of the crone, one who has witness countless lives.

Not all will fly upon your wigs of embrace, for to do so comes at such a cost…

Strength through devotion honor dedicated of thine heart, through both darkness and the grey.
