The work we do,

is not of boasting,

but of privilege.

A privilege bestowed upon us the moment we came into this Earth,

carrying the gifts we decided to bring on this journey,

to share with others in supporting one another in the awakening of the spirit.

We are reminded when our heart cringes from lack of support,

for a vision we deeply cherish,

a part of our being yearns to create,

to express our deepest desires,

our thoughts, our dreams,

vivid, vibrant, and full of life.

There is no wrong way to live such a life,

for if it is fueled with heart,

only love can reside.

Let us embark on this love-filled ride,

full of surprises and expansion,

for we are here not as robotic-beings,

but full of light, ready to fight for what we believe in —

Love.

Deeper and deeper,

down the rabbit hole I go.

Exploring, dreaming,

scribbling, dicing and slicing,

the very heart of the matter.

Preparing for another push,

a birth of stories, signals, signs,

saying yes, saying no,

saying so, saying hello.

We are electrifying,

pulsating with every breath we take,

beautifully integrating into this life we live.

Funny how things work.

The Universe answering a beckoning call.

Not knowing how to control urges,

asking for help,

asking for a cease fire within.

Prayers answered in the most unconventional way,

unexpected,

comical, even,

yet absolute.

Nothing beats the finality of when,

all comes to a halt.

Frustration at first,

but freedom at last.


“You set yourself free.” U says.

“No, you set me free.” I say.


Abundance of space,

of time,

of mind.


All possibilities await.

Sometimes we do not know where we are headed,

or whether it is even the right direction.

We look for signs,

we ask for directions from passerby’s,

only to be told their viewpoints,

unsure if it applies to our current situation.


Why are we so unsure of ourselves,

question our every step,

or swing completely to the opposite end,

pretending to boast self confidence,

while the scared cat,

arches its back,

in the dark, bleak corner of our inner heart,

shivering with fear,

fear of being found,

called out as fake?


Nothing is certain,

nothing is guaranteed.

Even the truth we seek through others,

through the institutions past who have upheld dignity, honor,

now in shambles,

desolate without an ounce of remembrance of times gone by.


But we do not need to identity with any of this,

for our truth,

our self worth,

our way of being and living,

is within our selves.

Even if we may not know what tomorrow will bring,

we have today,

and that is all we need,

to make the difference we seek.

Sometimes life is messy,

and then, a glimmer of hope,

just waiting to be captured,

just waiting patiently for us to notice.


It is within the little things:

holding someone’s hand,

looking into their eyes,

telling them, “I understand.”,

letting them know they are seen.


Miracles happen in the most unexpected places,

in the most unexpected ways,

or they would not be called miracles.


In our darkest hour,

when all seems lost,

when suffocation seems to take over,

our body goes numb,

our minds drift into a vortex of,

what if’s,

we mustn’t forget —

nothing lasts forever,

even our very existence,

and therefore there is no need to worry,

for the glimmer of hope points to the North,

showing our way towards salvation.

In the most delicate of moments,

when what is said may not be what is meant,

lives are changed.

We may not know it,

dismissing it as “just words”,

or tainted by our own lust,

with power, recognition,

disillusioned by the idea of our holiness,

but such is not to be mistaken for truth,

for we are no different than those who walk besides us.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Equality may not look the same for you or I,

but what is truth is,

you and I are human.

At the core of our being,

we yearn for the same —

connection, love, acceptance,

harmony, peace,

for ourselves and our loved ones s


Is this not the same,

for you and me?

Is this not colorless, gender-less, society-less,

but human-ness?


We are not so different,

you and me,

the same eye,

look out into the world with wonderment,

the same nose,

smells the autumnal night,

the same lips,

speak of dreams,

the same heart,

beats of life.


What you say and do,

affects me.

What I say and do,

affects you.

Because we are One.

BECAUSE we are ONE.
