To Be, or Not To Be?

looking up (1)

 

Be that to which others look up to attain,

Be something of value, of richness to gain;

Be someone who’s higher, above what’s below,

Be upright, authentic, and trump status quo.

Flames of Freedom

burning-trail.jpg

 

Pressure and heat and

the presence of flames

(that deadly hellish

Trinity) made her

kindling temperature

an inevitability. And oh!

the pain,

the raw ooze as fire

tattooed skin; but as she

surrendered, her fear

went up in smoke. Her

selfishness and pride

burned away, searing

suffering soul, until only

true silver remained. Now,

her light is a beacon –

infinity’s fire – a

path of illumination for

others to follow the

Flames of Freedom.

It’s pretty cool what you can do with a burning stick at a campfire…

Nip It In the Bud

Don’t give the wind

the satisfaction

of ruffling your

feathers or bending

you out of shape;

nip it in the bud,

and bloom.
