I lie in gentle repose as a melody
tugs at me like a haunting refrain that plays
over and over-
It bursts into recognition as my SAD song,
It absorbs me and pulses inside my soul like a
heart beating rhythm.
I open my eyes to escape its presence
willing the mood to disappear.
Words become echoes of my thoughts playing
a bittersweet tune that passes by like a glance.
Frozen my body refuses to awaken from this
dream-like state of mind.
Fear sweats my brow while Faith pulls me
back to sanity, hushing the sound within; quiet
peaceful and reminiscent of innocence.
Written ages before, my SAD song, returns to
awaken me and illuminates the shadows of
forgotten notes that played as memories disguised as
shame and guilt.
Love dims the volume as my body stretches
towards a new tune blessing the SAD song
sending it into forgiveness.

You have abandoned me!
No one lives here anymore.
Within my heart there is a vacancy.
When you lived in me I sang with joy
danced in jubilation, moved with purpose.
Now there is emptiness, an ache that permeates
my soul, shading my existence with shadows.
Lonliness announces vacancy, a place to be
filled, a space to be fed, a place of rest and comfort.
What words do I speak to invite you to return?
This humble invitation requests no RSVP
you are welcome to step through the doorway of my
consciousness and seek me out.
Silence shouts and announces in reallization
a simple Truth.
It is better to be wounded, a captive, than to
always walk in armor.
I do not need to abandon myself
Returning home I fill the void and the sign
reads No Vacancy!

I make no excuses for myself. I do not attempt to fit into conformity or an idea of who I am supposed to be. The virtues that I posses lead me to a life filled with direction and conviction. If I make mistakes I take responsibility for my life, forgive and move on, taking each step forward.
My life is not an Apology
If I am humble then I have no excuse to present myself to the outside world as a spectacle to draw attention to what I have accomplished. It is in living my life as an example that I touch lives around me. I need no declaration or platitudes expounding my presentations. It is in the silence I communicate my gratitude. The virtuous does not need accolades from the outside world. It is from within that satisfies the soul. Good works are not done as an apology for lack of appearance, I do not wish to make amends just to live. I much prefer my life to be sweet, sound and unique. What I do concerns me, not what people think. I live my life free from societies views or judgments. I do not live as an apology to amend for any wrong doing or perceived wrong doings.

SITUATIONS ARISE OUT OF NO WHERE AND WHAT IS LEFT IS SPECULATION AND DOUBT. IN TIME QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED AND A FEELING OF COMPLETION IS ABSORBED AND LIFE GOES ON!
I came across a quote from Napoleon Hill that surprised and delighted me. It came as a revelation to a challenge I am experiencing in my life. I am sharing it with you in hopes you will gain an inner insight as I have.
“When opportunity comes, it often appears in a different form, and from a different direction than one expects. That it is one of the tricks of opportunity. It has a sly habit of slipping in by the back door, and often it comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat. Perhaps this is why so many fail to recognize opportunity.”

I have been guided to a book that speaks to me of making no excuses in my life. I revisit this book by Wayne Dyer frequently. Each challenge reminds me to look again at old patterns of excuses that I have lived with and serve no purpose in my evolution. They became life choices that existed in my mind for years and became useful until I realized that each day is an opportunity to live life differently than before. Programed into my subconscious were beliefs that are false affirmations that held me hostage with despair and doubt and worry and blame. These habitual thoughts have held me back from living life at the highest levels of success, health and happiness. With awareness, alignment, living in the Now, contemplation, willingness, passion, and compassion I have the power outgrow my reliance on excuses and help “correct my mind.” The book “Excuses Begone” Is a valuable tool for realizing this truth about myself.

He sets down the tool
-A badge of his craft-
And brushes from his brow-
A bright light
-Guide for the artisan-
Displays the person
-His first tool-
-Dark and faceless-
Revels in his work
And knows rest
Light’s life is snuffed
-Day is done-
And shadow passes
-Evening has come-
-Shadows and not-
