Reblog – Fixture by Logan Gorg

Oh, this piece is filled with so much commitment, love, joy, and empowerment. I felt it all with every line. Enjoy!

Faith, Health, and Other Musings

You’ve taken up residence

in my heart

and grow

every day more immovable;

when I peer into the cabinets

and corners

I can’t help but to think

I love what you’ve done with it.

Full Range

Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Dance & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #182


life is a dance
of up and down
and side to side
with the flow or against

we move in varying degrees
executing a series of gradations
achieving defeats and successes
we become in the motion

it certainly isn’t boring

Drive

treks of this distance
take a lifetime
not always a straight line
or one foot in front of the other
sometimes hopping on a broken leg
many times crawling
perhaps at times robust enough to run

living doesn’t carry with it
a formula for success
determination, a will to thrive and action
all prerequisites
a dash of luck thrown in
still
success not always achieved

i will not give up
i love myself too much

I Write Her

Darkness, frustration, anger, sadness.

Feeling sorry for myself.

Wallowing going nowhere.

Chance, opportunity, action, other’s opening that door. It’s all relative.

But it can’t happen without me.

I need to be in it. I need to want to go towards awareness, progress, and enlightenment.

Today. Let me be the tumbler moving in the right direction.

Unlocking myself now…

Finding A Way Home

i cling to this life with determination
boldly seeking the right directions to take
while some moments require reflection
other times swift and decisive actions

i trust in the wisdom graciously shared
and my savvy rightfully gained
it leads me to side-step making poor decisions
those which would leave me flailing and without support

i am confident and fortunate
moving forward with staunch efforts
to achieve progress and healing
so that only love resides within me





Seeing Clearly

the reality of who we are
wrapped in layers of facades
nurtured by culture and family
binds us stoically in place

the lens to our essence
is worn only by the carefully in tune
and compassionate observers
they see us prominently in the opaque

yet fear continues to holds us in check
until the threshold of mediocrity is breached
as exasperation begins to break the hold
of the form of tortuous conformity our bodies inhabit

we set ourselves free, finally…

Because It’s Time

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge #170

your hesitation asks questions
giving rise to unending doubt
shutting hope down

success in the making asks other questions
your future being challenges your past
it’s waiting to be discovered

force recognition of your strengths
face the obvious which holds you back
achieve all you are capable of

yes, NOW
change your trajectory
live your dreams

demand that of yourself

Embodiment Of Self

Inspired by Suzette B’s Blog – A Supreme Self

Suzette gave me one of those opportunities that I thoroughly relish: examining someone else’s thoughts and re-examine my own previously held views. Thank you, Suzette. 

And this is why I thoroughly LOVE the WP Community! Isn’t this what life is about?

While I agree with the quote she posted, a question arose for me. How do we get there? From what I see around our world, people are either worshipping something outside of themselves or do not even have the slightest idea that they have it within them. And in between, others are working towards more understanding.

For me, this is indeed the happy place we are trying to reach. It feels like it would be a place of peace and calm. Where our supreme self exists and allows itself to express to everyone, the people that I’ve encountered in my life who seem in agreement, this is where I have felt the most ease. But maybe it’s more of the idea that they have accepted me? Because I know that many of those I am close to still struggle with issues themselves. My comment on her piece was merely to explain what I felt would be what that would actually look and possibly feel like…

The place within us that has forgiven all the hurts, remembers all the joy,
and knows itself honestly and completely.

Do I, myself, or others achieve it 100% of the time? Hell no! But I would think it should be the end goal. Your thoughts?
