In Search of Myself

To look for myself in the world

Is a recipe for sorrow, loss and pain

For I can search high and low

Near and far

And never find the person I truly am.

In my haste to chase the silhouette of who I thought I was

I heard a voice echo in my head

“Are you really chasing something you know you can’t see, touch, smell, hear or feel?”

I stopped in my tracks and asked myself

What am I chasing?

What is my end goal in all of this?

In that very moment I noticed a change ripple through my body

A veil being lifted from my eyes

The world and its chaos was a reflection of my inner turmoil

To seek myself in such conditions reflected my ignorance,

But now I know better

What I seek and aspire to be can all be found within me.

Decisions

 

Let us not speak love but be love.

Let our actions bear witness to our character and how we carry ourselves.

As humans it’s unfair to box ourselves and set limits to our potential

when our potential is really as limitless as our imagination.

Only we can walk the path that Life has set us on

but what we do while on that path is truly in our own hands.

In time we’ll learn that fate and destiny were merely shadows of our own decisions.

Decisions that ultimately only we can choose.
