I Am

A sample of nature’s wonder
Blemished by earth’s anger
Pure of heart, without regrets
For that what I seek, I shall beget.

I’m a child, spawn of earthly nature,
Heavenly designed, God’s creature
No care for scars, lines…life’s directions
In His image He made us… no imperfections

Possibilities, chance or abilities
are some of our time’s realities
holding onto dreams freely begotten
Pain, hurt, past fears forever be forgotten

I am who I was made to be
Daughter, mother, sister and me,
upon whom God bestowed many bessings
Of love, peace, and life’s lessons

I am, in my eyes, queen of my humble throne
mistress of my mere existence, ever alone
I am, I declare, no paragon of virtue
But I am all woman, and that is true.

A Faerie Ballet

Faeries do ballet on the stream,
Spinning, pirouetting in a dance,
Wings glide past with golden gleam,
The music of the brook enchants.
Girls of youth and beauty wild,
Twirl and prance on graceful tiptoe,
Whirling like a spry young child,
Flit so lightly to and fro.
The faeries’ faces alight with wonder,
Cavort and caper in a spell,
The fall of water like a thunder,
Their laughter swells up like a bell.

Free Spirit

Let’s build each other up randomly
Together lets ride and make this day better
We have passion for the world and life
Passion to love and go after what we Desire
I have a lot on my mind but the sun shines
Sun smiling at me
Let’s me know I have something to believe in
A dark day turns into a bright day
just from a single thought
For a reason There is hope into today’s breeze
I breath and think to myself I won’t give up
Giving up would never make a better me
Instead I would never be who I was supposed to be
Breath of fresh air I’m so happy for another day
To be the best I want to be
Not looking behind looking beside me
That’s where you remain
I know you’ll never leave my side
We are soulmates
They say you see eye to eye
We see love to love
Let’s love forever
Ever flowing like the rivers and streams
So calm and poised
Free hugs cause I’m a free spirit

I love nature and The trees
And The beautiful life God has given me

Cemented in logics of palace
We are all trapped in matrioska boxes
entangled in a spasmodic auri sacra fames
that hinders authoritative our steps.
Freedom is finding again our space and our time
In countertrend to an aliening society
Junction with the other in uncontaminated realities
Disconnection from any imposed system
Impertinent and curious exploration of shining multicoloured corners of paradise
At the mercy of sublime, ephimeral, dazzling cicades
Intermittent enigmatic luminescent symphony,
Loosing oneselves in the ecstatic, gentle, sensual melody of nature
That everything embraces and encompasses
In pureness and harmonic perfection
In its prosperous maternal breast,
In which we find reflected drops of God,
Oracle of beauty,
Bunch of cherries on the sunshine
Perfume of amber and incense
Sensorial amplification
Enhancement of the mind in progress
In imaginific phantasmagorias
Peace of the spirit
Escaping the troubles of life
Truth in this continuous stage
Of a theatre to stay “inside”,
In free fall,
In the forgiveness of the simple joys.

I’ve been sentenced to prison
For the rest of my life
But not by a Judge or Jury
By a decision I made, twenty years ago
For a pledge, I vowed to uphold

I live in a clear bubble
For the world to see
Cameras are everywhere
But that won’t discourage me

The blood, the tears, the pain, the deaths
The public’s perception, the constant judging

The emptiness, the loneliness
The tears I cried, the pain I felt
The lives I saved, the people I’ve touched
Nobody really knows

I’ve seen many things within this time
My mind just can’t erase
This is the life, I chose to live

But please don’t judge me
For the actions of others
For I am an individual
I am a Police Officer

To my brothers and sisters in blue
Be mindful in everything that you do
Cause eyes are always watching you

My Message To The Man Upstairs

This is to the man upstairs,
One day, I hope to be up there.

Please allow me to do right down here,
Just let me drive and you can steer.

I promise to go wherever you direct me,
I just want to be where I am supposed to be.

It appears to be the right place, I don’t feel stressed,
I have arrived because I am blessed.

So thank you for listening to my message,
Because I heard you through your son’s passage.

God Bless

It’s a strange thing
But you never really think about it.
All you know is that you’re on the ground
And you aren’t going anywhere.

You could get so high on life that you think
You’re floating, but you aren’t
Trying to hide from it won’t work
Even thinking being invisible will help you get away,
But you won’t.

You want to get away feeling like
You’re alone, but you aren’t.
You aren’t friendless, you aren’t alone.
You’re here for a purpose, for a reason.

Now what is this purpose? What is this reason?
I have no clue, and neither do you.
That is for you to find out though,
But I promise on all existence you’ll find out.

Maybe that’s what Gravity is for.
To help you discover your true colors,
To decipher your path and keep you planted.
Here. To ensure your life’s mission is a success.

That’s it! It is here to help you.
So while you’re here use it.
Take advantage. We don’t have time to waste or be sorry.
Make the most of it.

Now, I know what you’re thinking…

Gravity is weird and strange,
But you didn’t think about it til now.
You know you’re stuck here and now,
You know why
