Follow Your Heart

Life can be rough.
It can make you want to say,
“Enough is enough! I quit!”

You throw up your hands
In dismay,
Not wanting to go through one more day,

Or minute or hour.
But life demands that you keep moving,
Whether you feel motivated or not.


The trials are turbulent.
The road is rocky.
Yet you know you must continue,

Despite your mind screaming
At you
That it’s time to quit.

This is the key:
Your mind is not your master.
Your heart discerns your personal truth.

Deep down you know
The right thing to do
Is to persevere;

So continue your fight
Until the sun of destiny
Shines on the horizon;

The explanation of all things difficult
Becoming a path of purpose
To Heaven’s door.

The Dance Of Life

Life is a dance; it is a dance
Of love, of compassion,
Of nature, of wit,
If you do it right.

A dance
Of happiness, of holiness,
Of peace, of helpfulness,
If you follow your own enlightened path.

And when your last days come,
You will know if you’ve succeeded
By the people who have gathered around you
And the people who hold you in their hearts.

For life is not a game of chance;
It is a testament
Of who you are as a person
And who you have become,

Through the path
You have chosen to walk
While you found yourself
Here on earth.
