Life

I moved along a path that crept through my mind like life moves through unnoticed, through darkness and into light, then back again as the earth moved around me. Night to day and back round again to touch my senses, moving me forward into another year older and often I wonder, another year wiser? I like to think so, I hope so at least. I celebrated another year tacked on to this amazing life yesterday. I honestly have gotten to the point as I get older to not give it a whole lot of thought. It’s going to happen, I enjoy each day and I find age is a state of mind. This week has been marked by much darkness and I strive to move into each day in a state of grace and faith that someday things will change, that there will be no sorrow, that there will be love and understanding. A high bar to set but I have to, in my heart of hearts keep on believing that things HAVE to get better in this big beautiful universe we call home. I gather energy from things in this world and it causes so much pain to feel the hurt, the anger, the violence that filters through the strainer of moments…have we become numb? Has this become so day-to-day that we shrug our shoulders and think, “eh, just another death…just another loss…happens every day, right?” It makes me sad, truly it does. I cannot say I understand being in someone else’s shoes, someone of a different religion/race but I can try. I can cry along side those in the world that do care, that seek to understand and be better. I can pray for healing, I can even pray for peace and I have to stop myself from asking, is it enough? It has to be. We have to start somewhere and I truly believe it needs to start everywhere. Ignorance and hate has no place in my world. I cannot watch the news, for it isn’t just news…it is someone’s life ending needlessly, it is someone losing a loved one, it is a tragic shame. All lives matter to me, and if we all poked our finger and made blood promises for forever friends, guess what? The blood is all the same. We are all worthy of life and respect. I pray for the world and I pray for help that I may be a better person, that we all become better people who come together, hold hands and love each other a whole lot more than what’s happening.

I’m another year older, but I felt so very old and tired…and sad….so very sad.

Peace and blessings to all of my friends. Love conquers Hate. Above all, LOVE before it’s too late.

  4. Keep in mind d that oppressive regimes in history have imprisoned and killed to silence the Poets because we are purveyors of not just words, but of ideas, and ideas are the seeds that grow to change the world. Keep writing.

  5. I keep hoping the same, yet day after day, find much the same. They never report the GOOD things in this world, it makes me wonder if it inspires evil in a way, the fifteen minutes of fame…..doesn’t matter when good people are dead, just another void in the quilted fabric of this world we call life…..sad, but I won’t stop trying to heal the people, one word at a time…..yet only those listening will attempt to try the change, to be the catalyst so to speak…..I’m not letting faith go….still there, getting stronger….peace, love and a hearty thanks, Kim

  10. The whole idea for me is the happiness within not externally
    Or at my immediate grasp
    If I least have that then my world will be a better place by those who come in contact with me
    Happy birthday
    Hugs and wiggles

  13. Yes, tired …I understand. I hope though that all this somehow on a scale that touches day to day lives will begin to turn the tides a different direction. One way or another, it’s inevitable. I do believe it’s going to take a person to person change to make a difference.
