Away From the Flame


Stories are like marshmallows
Burning in campfires
Goey, messy, tough to control
A dance between you and the world
Burning in ways you didn’t expect
But making it all stick together
All the rich layers that can be bitter or brittle
Or melt under a warm touch
Or stay strong and steady through the thick and thin
Each marshmallow to be seen as too burnt or too white
All of them striving for that perfect tan
That perfect vulnerability that doesn’t kill you with carcinogens
A thin layer strong enough to hold a soft gushing heart

Raindrop Thoughts

Yesterday I was feeling lost and troubled
Anxiety bubbling, insecurity doubled
I didn’t believe in my own abundance
That all my strengths had no substance

But something changed my confidence
And made me sense a subtle competence
A smile, a phone call, a chance to find
What I can do and some peace of mind

Watching hearts dance and come alive
Playing and learning is how to thrive
Curiousity and the drive for more
Guide me to never feel stuck or bored

Seeing that there is so much to discover
Is a lifeboat when riding through rocky weather
I am daring to be cold and uncomfortable
Because growth only comes when you are vulnerable

A Sketch of A Song: Nothing Else To Be

Follow Me

Nothing Else To Be

I tried being an angel
I tried being a devil
I tried being a saint
I tried being a rebel

But I say

2x
I am a human being, it’s a neutral thing
I am a human being it’s a simple thing

I tried being perfect
I tried being careless
I tried being everything
But all I was was lost

So I say

2x
I am a human being, it’s a neutral thing
I am a human being it’s a simple thing

There’s no point in trying
The truth is already there
The only thing to do
Is to drop the lies and reveal

There’s nothing else to be
But a human being
There’s nothing else to be
But a human being

There’s nothing else to be
But a human being
A being that’sĀ free
