Biology and Back Doors

Quit wanting to be someone other than who you are.

You, yes you, be you!

Full of emotion,

Filled with light that must shine,

But maybe won’t come through,

In the usual way.

 

For many, if not most,

Our biology keeps us firmly planted on the ground,

As our dreams soar a little too high and far.

But this is not sad!

The tug of desire,

Coupled with the pain of frustration,

Makes us pioneers of the soul,

Forcing us to pave a new way.

 

To look inside is to find a back door,

Which swings easily open for the emergence of our soul.

 

 

 

 

Smoke and Mirrors

There is nothing and no one to chase after,

It’s all just smoke and mirrors.

If someone or something seems better than you,

or what you have,

You are just fooling yourself,

And not looking past the smoke and mirrors.

Stop running for a moment,

And peacefully take a look,

Within yourself.

You are completely ordinary,

And One with everyone else,

That’s what makes you wonderfully extraordinary.

Everything else is smoke and mirrors.
