Create the world you desire

Perhaps it is you who create the world you desire,
Perhaps there is no need looking for it outside of yourself.
Maybe you have always carried what you have been looking for
With you, and all you had to do was live it.

Earth Angel

I see you…
Your face, your wings…
Without you knowing
I step into your skin,
Walk in your shoes.

I can feel the loneliness
Stuck, like chewed up gum,
Under your soles.

You wanted to feel loved
Before you loved another.

You carry yourself
Like a hungry downtrodden star,
Eating sparks and blowing dust
From open windows.

You wanted to grow before
You were spread out.

I can feel your homelessness
Like a floating dock loosely tethered to a pile
Of mute days.

You wanted to be held
Before you had to carry the world.

I can touch your erased memories
Invisibly contoured
To not throw shadows in mirrors.

I see you…
Your face, your wings…
Your smile hiding
In sleepless riddles.

Without you knowing
I step into your skin
And I stay there
Waiting for you to see me
My face, my wings…
Becoming yours.

Love itself needs
To be loved into
Existence.

One day, the world will dance for you

One day, the world
Will dance for you,
So don’t stop your crying
if it can ease the pain,
Those puddles will grow into lakes
And the sky of your lifetime
Will silver in a waxing sun,
Bleaching dusk into dawn.

One day, you will carry
Their sand in your hourglass,
So don’t let the world sugar-coat your
Lemon-puffed eyes to stop the tears,
Breathe hard against the winds
Trying to catch you in a storm of
Foreign thoughts.

One day, your feet
Will lift from the ground,
So don’t let your heart become skinny
from spreading out too far,
Even feathers can grow heavy
in the pouring rain,
And singular exhales come
With a far too heavy price.

True Happiness

Your worth cannot be increased
By doing good deeds.
Doing good deeds can only increase
Your own sense of joy and purpose;
Knowing you have made a difference
In someone’s life.
But if you do good deeds to prove
Your worth, to harvest acceptance
And acknowledgement from others,
Then you will never be satisfied or content.
True happiness comes from acknowledging
Your own worth, obtained just by being alive.
There is no greater peace than
When you can accept this.
