Much of Growth

Standard

Why am I so sensitive?
Why do I feel so much?
much like sharp empathies
much like those who easily cry
cry like a thunderstorm, or
cry subtly, like misty rain
rain can cleanse you
rain falls in seasons
seasons prompt adaptation
seasons encompass change
change is always the constant
change can be scary sometimes
sometimes we fear the unknown
sometimes we flow like water
water covers most of the earth
water gives us life
life vessels our purpose
life is different for everyone
everyone walks their own path
everyone wants to be loved
loved wholly and fully
loved like they deserve to be
be true to yourself
be considerate of others
others may not be mindful
others will learn through your actions
actions translate a language
actions share more than you tell
tell the stories of ancestors
tell all of the truths
truths make liars uncomfortable
truths peel off the masks
masks hide transgressions
masks fool people
people like social media
people paint pictures
pictures with filters
pictures of their perception
perception is a crucial lens
perception becomes one’s reality
reality of life
reality of time
time is an illusion
time is our forever
forever lives the spirit
forever allows space for growth
growth of self
growth makes us better
better
self.

Human Evolution

Standard

in life, we all face some drawbacks

at times, we stumble through the cracks

memories come surging like flashbacks

pains reach climax, pains reach climax
awakenings occur through pain

as lessons fall on us like rain

resistance will only add strain

it’s you to blame, it’s you to blame     
own your mistakes, decide to change   

new perspectives will rearrange   

preventing your soul to estrange

healthy exchange, healthy exchange.
