We Will See

One day, we will see.
We will see everything
we have done unfold
in front of our eyes.
We will see life and
death walk side-by-side
our entire lives. We
will see seeds become
trees, boys become men,
men become husbands,
husbands become fathers,
fathers become grand-
fathers, nothing become
something. We will see
something become no-
thing. One day, we will
see that we should be
happy the way life is.
One day, we will see
that our life wasn’t free.
I believe we will see
everything that we need.

In the Woods

In the woods, all life thrives.
Animals roam in their home.
Some people choose to move.
Some stay put in the woods –
to experience mother nature.
In the woods, energy changes
without help from human
hands or plans of destruction.
In the woods, this life is good,
like it should be. In the woods,
time stops. Nature goes without
a clock. Life pushes on and on.
In the woods, all worry is gone.

Spring Healing

Sunshine will soon shimmer.
The scorching sun will remind
us that we are at the mercy
of Mother Earth as Father Time
takes its course. It’s cold now,
but you just wait. Not before
long, the cold will grow old
and be gone. I see us feeling
more free in the coming weeks.
I can see new beams of love
coming from above. I know
there are good days ahead
with more light to be shed.

A Rainbow’s End

I have traveled many miles
to see the end of the rainbow.
I have seen time slip before
my very eyes. To my surprise,
Mother Nature never lied.
I searched far and wide,
outside and inside, to find
a better life at the end
of the rainbow. I know that
I traveled to the end and back.
I must appreciate the rainbow
before it decides to turn black.

Lime Green Lighter

That lime green lighter carries a flame
that only the strong maintain.
It lights up a room, always, and
when darkness comes, your light stays.
The flame created must be celebrated.
Only so few possess your gift.
So, thank you for the mindsets you shift.
That lime green lighter keeps me safe
and burns away any leftover hate.
This light burns at all times, but I still
have moments where I cry.
I know your light will always shine
and will show me that I’ll be fine.
