Embracing Passions New ( When no one gets what is making you tick)

Anxious me

Fretting heart

Can’t think straight

Tides rushing in

I know I’m safe

If I just let go

But this lifeline

Is long overdue

Can’t let go

Of this last chance


You think out loud

Your last chance? who told you so?

But I can’t explain it

It’s a knowing beyond words

This is it, This is it for me

So I must hold on

I must go on

If for nothing else

To just find out

If there really is treasure

At the end of this rainbow

Anxious me

You would be too

If grey clouds were all

Your sky could host

And now a rainbow

Pretty array of colours

Proudly spans your globe

I know its real

It sets my heart on fire

My beating racing heart

Gets no reprieve

It fills up with excitement

The joyful anxious kind

Desperate to explore

This rainbow I see

Although you can’t see it

It’s a sure sign for me

A calling I must obey

I must follow through

Can’t let go now

Can’t revert to type

The me you know

The me for whom

No one but you

Filled up my world

That me you know

Pleadingly requests

Please share my heart

With this rainbow I see

Free my wings

To touch the sky

For now, Intangible dreams

But to this dreamer so real

It’s Passion’s embrace

And I can’t deny it

My predictable boring life

Now an invisible molten flame

That requires expression

One we can’t shut down

So please come with me

As I have done with you

It’s no diversion

Just a new discovery

One I’ll rather share with you

Than hide from you

I can only reach it,

If I am free to feel it

Free to express it.


I Believe In Miracles

Another one from my scrap paper collection……( Dont throw scrap paper away especially if they have been around for 10 years. Cos you know you are a scribbler. You might miss something important)

I believe in a baby’s smile

I believe in a mother’s love

I believe in a peaceful world

Where every need is met

I believe the sun will shine

I believe dreams do come true

I believe a new day arrives

Where skies are clear and blue

But you say……..

There is no cure for this disease

There is no food for this hungry child

This old man must sleep in the cold tonight

Don’t you know…….

There are visions the eye can’t see

There are sounds the ear can’t hear

There is beauty beyond my touch

A taste of heaven in my heart

I believe in strength unseen

To come up ‘tops’ when one is down

I believe in tiny steps

That takes me closer to my dreams

I believe in holding on

‘Cos giving up is the easy way out

I believe life is full of miracles

Though one a day is all we need
