My Enlightenment through youWhen I was a child, sitting upon my moms lap.
Feeling the wet grass underneath my hands.
In a hot Summer night on the hill at Reid Park
Full of wonder, looking up at the big screen above me.
My curiosity crept in, as I wondered why there running.
I look all around me, searching through the sea of faces.
Some smiling, sad, terrified or mad.
Being too young to understand the meaning of the film.
But knowing the feeling of belonging is deeper inside of me.
Seeing myself running, so happy to be alive.
Learning we are yours, saying our prayers.
12 Years Later
I was stubborn in my youth, keeping my mom worried.
Keeping her up all night, praying for my safety.
The prowlers of the night, werent able to reach me.
Having my Guardian Angels keep tabs of my whereabouts.
Almost shot, stabbed, raped and kidnapped.
But saved before any harm.
You always kept your word, never let me down.
I sometimes chose not to listen, so I learned the hard way.
But I turned myself aroun
During Vacation... During vacation on a beautiful day
Listening to birds sing with kids splashing water down the creek
Hearing the sounds of whispers from the breeze,
Not a cloud in the sky
I felt the power through the rocks,
See the water glistening from the trees,
The feeling of oneness of nature was all around you
Love, happiness, and joy all combined as one
That's the way I felt, my first time in Sedona.
Mom with her boyfriend, laughing and sun tanning,
Tina, Liz, Melissa, and I playing in a pool of deep water,
As the water submerges completely,
Playing jaws, trying to scare each other,
Not a fear of the water, not even the feel of fish,
Tina afraid of the feel of a fish on her leg
As we start to race one another
Swimming back and forth,
We realize Tina's the ultimate swimmer.
With a cramp in her leg and fish swimming around
Tina starts to come undone
Terrified where she's at
Red Rock slipping from her reach
She finds the first t
My Life...My Life's calling, setting fires.
Drifting up like blazing tires.
Sending me to places, I haven't begun to embrace yet.
Letting me soar like the wings of a dove.
To my dreams which have come above, the life I am now living.
To see how much I have been forgiving.
For my life's work, Not giving onto liars.
My life's calling, setting fires.
To Save himself from Dying...He puts both hands in the water, so the water would start moving.
Sends ripples at the sides, to feel the essence of the sea.
He splashes water in his face, to wake up.
But his hands turn into icicles.
The water isn't deep, for the ice has covered all.
He gathers his strength to find the path back.
As he hides his face, from the blizzard ahead.
He looks up...to hear a sound in the distance.
I am svaed! I am svaed! I am saved!
Your words of Wisdom,
Makes Shakespeare sound unsure.
Your touch of freedom,
Makes Romeo shiver with fear.
Your strength of character,
Makes Jack proceed to stare.
For their love story,
Was only but a legend.
For when they heard of us.
They knew we were sent,
For our Dreams came true,
Since fate brought us together.
Death as I see myself letting go.
Watching as I drift above.
Not knowing where I am, or how I got there.
Feelings of Loneliness, I try to overcome.
The presence of Love, Start to drift in.
As I begin to recognize, the shadows I have loved.
I start to understand, what's happening to me.
For the Angel of Death, sheds her wings;
To bring in light, for me to see.
As I go through, I look behind.
Relizing I led, a good full life.
But now that Death is at my side.
I PONDER............then I go through.
