They Say

They say

“Real loves moves freely in both directions
So why would you waste your time
on anything else”

I believe we want so much to be loved
That we often settle for
less then what is real

Doing our best to put blinders on
using what we have learned from others
in our past to get the person we think we want

Yes, I said it
think we love to change and be the one
the one to fill our wishes and wants
to be everything we are lacking in our life
to fill our void

To  truly love
Is to love  what we have
Real love shows us to
see who we are and who the other is
just the way we are
free of blinders, free of attempting to change the other

It is made up of the things we say
The things we don’t say
The things we do
Most importantly we believe in each others journey
and desire to be with and love each other
Just the way we are

Giving each others support in the work they do
Loving each other should be the easiest thing we have ever done
It flows with grace and ease from one heart to the others heart

Real love is work
however it is the most fun and exciting work we can do

I open my heart to love
giving and receiving it all day long

Family

Family consist of the people
We choose to journey
Our younger years with

To teach us
So many things
Some help us to grow
In loving ways
Others push us to see
All the things we don’t
Like and desire not to be

Which is the gift

Family teaches us who
We are
And how we are not

Family can bring love
And happiness into our lives
Or they can be destructive
And heartbreaking

In my life
I bore myself to my family
As my gift for healing

Seems like I decided to heal
Lots of past lives all
At once

The gifts I received from
My family
Was to learn many forms
Of love
Mostly what the ego
Said love was, is

I found through them
That I felt different
I felt something that
Did not fit
Through them being them
I found me

I believe that love comes
From and lives in my heart
It fills me with joy and peace

Love is unconditional
Free of expectations

I can say I love my family
For what they brought
Into my life for healing

Honor

What does it mean to honor thyself
Different from respect
not the same as love

How does one honor thyself
if we don’t understand what the
word really means

Loving myself means
doing good things for myself
saying and believing in myself
respecting my past lessons
moving forward humbly
free of judging myself for where I have been

I get confused with the concept of
honor verses respect
I view respect as working hand and hand
with honor

Respecting myself means to treat myself
as I would a friend or someone I love
with kindness

Honor myself
I tell myself the truth and I find ways
to be truthful to others without hurting them
at the same time doing the right thing for myself
instead of what is right for someone else

So today I honor myself
that what once was no longer is
that which I desire has yet to come
living in between feels so upsurd

I am not here or there
ackward I feel moving around in the void
as if lost in the night
awaiting first light

I am still here
honoring my journey
not sure who I am
yet, trusting I am on the right path for me
