With every drop of rain
I sign your name.
For a love like this,
could never come.

With every drop of blood,
I feel the pain.
Thou I know, not its name.
Just the love that it has taken;
And the anguish that is to come.

As love lies bleeding.

The Marathon

I catch my breathe at the starters gun,
Running this race, had just begun
Steel hope and determination
To win my cause: to feel the rush of the applause.

Heart pounding, as I run
Hoping the pain, would refrain
A willingness to carry on: and break through the barrier.
Heart pounding, as I run
Until my race, is won.

The jostle of bodies, running close by
Some crimson and red, hearts pounding like lead
As we all race for our cause,
And not the applause.

Heart pounding, as I run
Until our race is won.
Then after the 26 miles have gone.
I know that finally my work is done.

This is me - spoke from the heart.

This is me spoke from the heart (Title)

Life - this life.
My life, your life is a divine journey.
Full of hopes, and hidden dreams.
Most of us walk around with eyes firmly shut, closed down like shutters of the stores dying and being abandoned in our ravaged streets.
For many life is a pit of spiraling despair, and chaotic confusion.
And for the lucky few, it's a diadem of tranquility and serene calm.
The rich grow richer; but even in these stark days they too ponder the weight of their sobriety.
I surrender my self to the winds of fate like a reckless fool, jumping aboard a train erratically gathering speed.
Speeding joyously to a new dawn and an evolving new reality.
In these recent months and days my eyes have been prized open, the shutters have been cast aside.
I have started moving towards taking the wheel of my speeding train. I woke this morning feeling different, strange caught between two places the seen and unseen.
I am so blissfully grateful and filled with an awesome sense of deep gratitude and honour for all the abundance and beauty in my life.
I realise that to love your family and all mankind is not enough, deep love is more than this even more than sacrifice.
It's being blissfully grateful and truly filled with and over flowing with gratitude, for the good and bad that life brings in all its shapes and sizes.
It is only when we open our eyes and minds to our selves that we can truly start to try and understand each other, and embrace with grace the humanity of all of mankind.
