A Song Within

“And all meet in singing, which braids together the different knowings into a wide and subtle music, the music of living. ” Alison Croggon, The Naming 
“Words make you think. Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought.”  

I watched the waves, ambiance of shush,

Coerce an inner rhythm, a force to push,
A song from a heart, no one can hear
Only me singing, only me, no fear.
Now I’m singing, to music in my head.
I find myself drumming, hitting a rock instead.
Miracle of life. I see a better way.
To find myself singing, to music of the day.


Fear – Futility in interpreting thoughts

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” – Frank Herbert, Dune   



Woke me up, your thoughts to see
nothing true, nothing real
only fear
I think what you think of me
nothing true,  nothing real,
only fear
I look around, your opinions to see
nothing true, nothing real
only fear
It keeps my mind from seeing me
nothing true, nothing real
only fear
I look behind, its you I see
nothing true, nothing real
only fear
Thoughts can no longer hold me
I can make them true, I can make them real
no fear.
