tread carefully along a path
that sticks you with its thorns
injecting poison deep into you
tearing you apart from inside

·

if you are called to wage war
do not waste time tormenting
playing little games with yourself
falling in love with believable lies

·

break free trom the temptations
turn away from your jealousy
asking why you are feeling this
instead of merely owning all of it

·

refuse to play the part of worrying
warrior – always looking to defend
creating the battles in your head
always losing on one side –

·

just listening instead, to your gut
heart and head, informed by soul
churning and burning deep within
glowing pure with immortal knowing
·
uncomfortable and demanding
understandably you resist a bit
letting the truth sink in past ego
watching your illusions dissolve

·

release the tensions on your heart
breathe deeper to fill and share
let go of expectations once again
tread carefully so as not to snare
