It went all blurred, it went all fainted..
the noises went on and my heart bled..
my insatiate soul left me wandering..
That night I screeched I snarled
sky could hear, so could flowers
moon could talk so could palm tree
Ocean could empathize so could hazy clouds
They embraced, they loved, they cared..
Rain touched, flowers kissed when I got scared..
Was introduced to the beneath tranquility and glee..
And the shift happened after the night with mother nature..
Sitting on the edge, being pulled back while wanting to move forward
I feel my dream emerging in the noises around me
All the chaos around me reminds me of all that is probably not going to change
And my spirit yearns for the new that I can feel deep inside that needs to birth
The signs are everywhere and so are dissenting voices
What do I hear and yield to? The lies that take new form or the quiet truth inside?
Tried really hard to be right, and that has not been enough
Why not try to forget the right once and for all and go for the inner bliss?
Whatever I choose today, I am sure now is the time to take a stance
Listen to the signs, pick up the dreams and forsake all; or let the noises drown me
Now I know, I can forsake anything but forsake self
The outside verdict of right or wrong can take whatever form
Inside verdict is clear; my bliss and my life is my path
