My last stand

All the wisdom you espouse
could not compensate for the love
you never had, I know when something
is rare and real, something which I
have now; something I know I can
build my life upon, there is
nothing left to say except
I am going to love whoever I want
as much as I want,
I am going to live my life
to the brim, on my own terms
and nobody is going to take
that away from me.

Take a deep breath.
You will be alright.

In time for you to soar

You will wake up
on your own tomorrow,
you will find that you are
somewhat intact, despite
everything, you will catch
the wind in your breath,
home will heal you
in time for you to soar.

When you need it most

Travelling used to be a saga
 in the days of yore,
So it is for me,
Life opens up in ways
You cannot fathom,
You find yourself anew,
As seen from stranger's eyes,
you see, you eat, you examine 
this life and the lives of others,
Intersecting, imagining, writing
 a saga of its own,
Untold miseries, lost ways, but as always,
You persevere, like the blood that flows to keep you alive, everything will  conspire to give you strength when you need it most.

You have arrived

floods into your arms
it ebbs and flows
dreams come true
like flowers bloom
love will thread out a path
for you, the rains will come,
you will learn to let it hold you,
soon it will wash away
your fears, yours insecurities,
troublesome details of this and that,
Dahling, you have arrived.

A poem as a prayer

Some things will set itself right,
dust settles down,
so will you overcome.
You will see the world,
you will save it too.

Baby, this is your time to shine

Baby, this world will try to pull you down,
tell you that you are not good enough,
tell you what is good for you,
tell you that you are just a child,
but Baby, you know better,
you will tear this place apart
if it tries to stop the big heart that you are
the big world that you believe in
there is joy in you,
courage and wisdom both,
you are here to win,
to shake things up,
to bring the old world down,
Baby, this is your time to shine.
