Safe place (inspired by We Write Poems)

In the midst of the chaos
The pain and the fear
There’s a safe place
Always near, always here
Between what was
And what will be
The present moment
Is waiting for me
To let go of my thoughts
To relax with what is
Apart from right now
Nothing exists

The beauty of imperfection

I am not perfect
I stopped trying to be
Neither are you
And now that’s okay with me

I have entered the depths
Without a guide
It’s full of life down here
Thriving and throbbing
The creatures are holding on to me
Trying to pull me in deeper
I pull back and run
Down one way and then another
I’ve lost my path
My heart where are you
I cannot hear you beat
I scream and cry
I need to find a way out
But I’ve lost my guide
My heart is silent
